Truck Company Errors

Miami Truck Company Errors LawyersTruck Company Errors

If you have been injured in a large truck accident, it is critical that you retain a personal injury attorney who understands the role that a trucking company may play in an accident. While a truck driver may have been the immediate cause of your accident, negligence on the part of a trucking company may also have played a significant role in your accident.

These could include but are not limited to:

  • Inadequate testing of drivers when hired: Saving of costs by some companies in their operation can be a factor to investigate when determining fault in an accident. Another area is failure to provide for the risk of driver fatigue. Federal trucking laws require semi truck operators to take adequate rest breaks that are designed to prevent the driver developing fatigue. Dispatchers in trucking companies are obligated to know when a truck driver has exceeded a certain amount of miles and may be fatigued.
  • Negligent maintenance: Trucking companies have a duty to keep their vehicles in good working order, including working breaks, lights, tires and safety devices.
  • Failure to prevent driver fatigue: Trucking companies have dispatchers who should keep track of how many miles a trucker has logged. They should be mindful about the danger presented by truck driver fatigue and take appropriate precautions when a trucker may be at risk of fatigue.
  • Negligent loading: Overloaded trucks are more difficult to stop and may be more prone to a rollover accident if the weight is not properly distributed. Truck loads must be properly secured to prevent accidents caused by falling objects and debris.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
