Truck Accident Attorney in Ormond Beach

Injured by a negligent truck driver in Daytona Beach?

Commercial truck drivers are held to high standards when it comes to the operation of their vehicles. When loaded to federal capacity, tractor-trailers can weigh as much as 40 tons, which can do a great deal of damage in a collision.

Drivers and passengers in smaller vehicles are likely to suffer catastrophic injuries if they are involved in a rear-end or head-on collision with a truck. Jackknife accidents and rollover truck accidents can also result in multiple-car pileups and serious injuries.

Federal Trucking Regulations

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration provides detailed rules and regulations regarding the maintenance, equipment, and operation of commercial trucks, as well as the training and hiring of truck drivers. Negligent truck drivers and trucking companies can both be held responsible for an accident that results from carelessness. Here are some of the common mistakes:

  • The truck driver failed to check his or her blind spots before changing lanes, resulting in a sideswipe accident.
  • The brakes failed or a tire blew because of improper maintenance.
  • The driver was driving for continuous hours with no rest.
  • The driver was speeding to meet a deadline.
  • A load was not secured and became undone.

No matter what, you will be facing the big trucking companies and their insurance carriers when you file a claim for personal injury. Vukelja Law can provide an experienced Ormond Beach personal injury lawyer to represent you and recover your damages.
