Have you recently been in trucking accident in the Central Florida area? If so, you want to find an Orlando lawyer who handles trucking accidents. By choosing a truck accident lawyer you can be assured that your case is in good hands. Trucking accidents are those accidents that involve a commercial truck, such as a semi tractor-trailer, and at least one passenger vehicle. They can range from small to severe, and often after a trucking accident people wonder how to replace or repair the damage to their vehicles, or how they are going to pay for their medical bills or lost wages if they have been injured.
A person who has been in a trucking accident may think that the case will proceed like any automobile accident, but this is not the case. There are two main differences when dealing with a trucking accident:
- Truck drivers are required to follow much more strict federal safety rules and regulations. They are required to maintain logbooks, comply with drive time restrictions, perform routine inspections and comply with load weight limits.
- Truck accidents are usually more severe than accidents involving only automobiles, as a result of the sometimes large difference in the size and weight between trucks and passenger vehicles. Most trucks are on the job and working when accident occurs so the trucking company and/or truck owner, in addition to the truck driver, might be also found to be at fault for the accident.
