Miami and North Miami Beach Personal Injury Lawyers Handling Truck Accidents on Florida Highways and Miami Streets

On many occasions, tractor trailer operators, trucking company, vehicle owners, and even insurance companies will try to absolve themselves from liability for the personal injuries, property damage, or loss as a result of the incident involving a tractor trailer or large commercial vehicle.

The Perazzo Law Firm Offers the Best Advice for Determining Liability for Turning Accidents

Operating a tractor trailer or any large commercial vehicle through city streets or avenues is no simple task. Making wide turns involve a great deal of skills and caution as a tractor trailer is compelled to occupy an extra lane to do so. Any distraction to the tractor trailer driver while making a wide turn may lead to a collision with another vehicle in the lane the truck is looking to occupy to execute the turn. Sometimes, motorists to the side may be forced onto the sidewalk, into another car, or even into a distracted pedestrian. Inexperience, fatigued, drugs or alcohol use may be an underline cause of turning accidents. Sometimes, the trucks speed can cause cargo that has not been properly fastened to slide off and cause severe personal injury or property damage to third parties. Our truck accident lawyers are trained and experienced in trying to determine driver or trucking company negligence by proving that the tractor trailer operator breached his/her duty to maneuver the vehicle safely down a Miami highway or street. Following a trucking accident that leads to personal injury or property damage, the Perazzo Law Firm advices accident victims to immediately contact the authorities if and when possible to do so. Check for any injuries to passengers and report them to the proper authorities. Do not move the vehicle or any injured parties until rescue or accident units arrive. Take photos of the accident scene and gather eyewitness contact information to be used as evidence in the event of litigation for compensation claims. Trucking companies and Insurance providers are not always quick to accept fault and make prompt payment to accident victims. Thus, the more evidence our trucking accident attorneys have, the better the chance of a quick and favorable compensation outcome. Despite many accident cases being quite obvious for determining liability, the operator of the tractor trailer may deny any, if not all fault. Thus, it is up to the Perazzo Law Firm's trucking accident attorney to present vital evidence and arguments to prove otherwise. It is important to determine who was at fault before presenting a claim for litigation. Thus, contacting one of our Truck Accident lawyers is fundamental before filing charges against a trucking company.

The Perazzo Law Firm Offers the Best Advice for Determining Liability on Behalf of the Trucking Company

Proof of direct negligence on behalf of the trucking company makes it liable for any personal injury, property damage or loss to any and all victims involved. Poor vehicle maintenance, as well as inadequate or irresponsible hiring of its drivers, mechanics, or parts suppliers can play a major role in determining liability. A trucking company must make sure its drivers are well trained, have no criminal records, and are of sound mind to operate such large vehicles. Furthermore, they must make sure that the tractor trailers are loaded by qualified staff and that any and all cargo is properly secured. In the event that a tractor trailer is operating on a highway and its cargo slides off and results in an accident, the trucking company is held absolutely liable for any injuries or damage that incur as a result, simply because trucking companies must abide by state and federal regulations. These apply to any and all accidents, be they head-on collisions, T-bone accidents, left or right turns, or evens a blown-out tire that causes a tractor trailer to lose control.
