Semi Truck Accidents
Florida Personal Injury Lawyer – Truck Accidents
Some accidents, and the injuries that can result from them, are simply a matter of physics: The larger and heavier a vehicle is, the greater the impact and force of any collision involving that vehicle. Consequently, Florida truck accidents have the potential to do a lot of damage in terms of property and injuries simply because of the size and weight of the rigs involved. When an accident involving a truck does occur, having an experienced Florida truck accident attorney as an advocate can be crucial for an injury victim to be able to obtain whatever compensation may be available. Fortunately, Florida personal injury lawyer Mark J. Leeds has years of experience in handling Florida truck accident cases and can bring a wealth of legal knowledge and success to bear on your particular case.
Fatigue and Truck Accidents – A Florida Accident Attorney Who Will Fight for You
Despite federal laws regulating the amount of time truckers can be on the road, many shipping companies will attempt to stretch the limits of their drivers and of their equipment. As a truck accident lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, Mark J. Leeds understands the importance of requesting work logs from the driver and the company, actually investigating the number of hours logged, and determining if the route and number of alleged deliveries could reasonably be accomplished in the amount of time logged.
In addition, Mark also knows that Florida trucking companies sometimes do not perform maintenance on all of their trucks as often as safety would demand, so he will also request the maintenance records of the truck involved in your accident. This requested information will be used by Florida truck accident lawyer Mark J. Leeds to vigorously pursue every bit of remuneration to which you may be entitled because of your injuries.
Big Load, Heavy Weight, Serious Consequences
Sometimes, Florida truck accidents are not caused by driver fatigue or driver error, but because a truck has been improperly loaded. Because the weight of an improperly loaded truck can shift in transit, a truck that has not been loaded properly is vulnerable to overturning even when the driver is operating the truck in a normal fashion. However, just because the driver of the truck may not be responsible for an accident, that does not mean that no one bears any responsibility. If there is a chance that the truck which caused your accident was improperly loaded, personal injury attorney Mark J. Leeds will thoroughly investigate the shipping dock or docks where the truck may have been loaded to determine who might be responsible for your injuries, and if appropriate, will hold them accountable.
Knowledge of Trucking Laws and Regulations – Your Florida Accident Lawyer at Work for You
