Sarasota Accident Attorneys Work to Prove Truck Driver Negligence

Establishing liability is the key to winning fair compensation

Commercial trucks can do a great deal of damage in a collision, but injury and property loss are not enough to justify compensation. If you have been hurt in an accident with a tractor-trailer, your attorney must show that the truck driver, or someone other than yourself, acted negligently to cause the crash. At Morris & Widman, P.A., our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined experience in personal injury law. We know how to investigate a commercial truck accident to get at the heart of the case: causation. Once we establish who was at fault, we can start making the case for how much compensation you deserve.

Understanding how driver negligence contributes to truck accidents

Because commercial trucks have so much destructive potential, federal and state governments regulate their activity. Unfortunately, trucking companies and their drivers often violate safety regulations, and drivers sometimes operate big rigs in an unsafe manner. Common causes of truck accidents??include:

It is also possible to find negligence on the part of the trucking company or its commercial partners for careless actions, such as performing faulty inspections, failing to secure a load or overloading the truck. Finally, the driver of another vehicle may have made an unsafe maneuver that caused the truck driver to lose control. Many motorists ignore safety precautions necessary when sharing the road with tractor-trailers. They settle in the truck???s blind spot, fail to give the rig room to make wide turns or cut off the truck forcing the driver to brake and jackknife.
