Helping you determine liability in a trucking accident

Manufacturers and distributors throughout the country, including Florida, rely on trucking companies to deliver their materials and goods at all hours of the day and night every day of the year. Because many truckers are required to meet strict schedules and delivery deadlines, some of them violate federal and state highway rules and regulations, putting the lives of other people at risk. Any trucking accident caused by speeding, failure to yield to the right of way or not observing traffic signs and lights is likely to injure or kill other motorists.

Being injured in a truck accident can be highly traumatic for any victim. We understand how hard it is for you and your family to cope with the damage. Truck crashes can impose more than physical injury; they can cause overwhelming medical expenses and pain and suffering, and they can mean lost wages. Our legal team at Culpepper Kurland has helped clients seek compensation for all of these.

Many truck crashes are preventable if drivers exercise due care, keep their vehicles adequately maintained and follow all rules and regulations. A thorough investigation can reveal the causes of a truck accident. An investigation may include examining any available video footage, interviewing possible witnesses of the crash and reviewing mandatory accident and police reports. The driving history of the vehicle and trucking company also can be subject to detailed investigation.

Reconstruction investigations may yield more information that indicates fault. With those results and any other evidence that our team may find, we may be able to help our clients overcome any financial problems that result from a crash.
