Truck Accident Cases We Handle
There are many different types of truck accidents that can occur and for various reasons. Some are due to driver negligence while others are caused by vehicle malfunctions or the truck company’s failure to adhere to safety laws. The Villages truck accident lawyer Tim Babiarz has experience representing cases involving an array of commercial vehicle collisions, including:
Tractor trailers are among the biggest and heaviest vehicles on Florida’s roads. Weighing up to 80,000 pounds, they require skilled and attentive drivers, and their loads must be properly distributed and secured to reduce the risk of serious accidents. Unfortunately, some truck drivers log too many hours and sometimes are inattentive or unduly fatigued and doze behind the wheel. Trucking companies sometimes take shortcuts in order to deliver as many loads as quickly as possible. These and other mistakes frequently lead to catastrophic tractor trailer crashes.
Rollover accidents can result from several different issues, most of which involve some form of truck driver error. When a truck driver’s mistake leads to a serious or fatal accident, the driver (and often the trucking company), will typically be legally responsible for the victims’ losses.
Jackknife accidents can often be a product of driver error as well. They result from sudden braking and overcorrected steering -- common issues when a truck driver is not paying attention to traffic or fails to account for slick road conditions from a sudden rainstorm.
Along with rollover and jackknife accidents, many commercial truck accidents result from reckless and unsafe driving behaviors. Rear-end collisions, multi-vehicle pileups, wide-turn accidents, U-turn accidents; and others all frequently involve some element of negligent truck driving.
From tire retreads to straps for securing cargo, virtually every component and piece of equipment on a commercial truck has the potential to fail. If you or a loved one was injured in a truck accident that was not a result of driver error, there is a good chance that an unsafe or defective truck part was to blame.
