Most of the time, when you see a large commercial truck on the roadway, you can count on it being safe and roadworthy. Unfortunately, there are times when negligent truck companies or careless drivers cause crashes. If that happens and you get hurt, you need to know where to turn.
Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates is standing by to help when you need a North Miami Beach truck accident attorney. We do not think you should be on the line for any crash-related expenses due to another person’s negligent behavior.
The thought has crossed your mind – “Please don’t let that huge truck crash into me.”
We know the feeling. Driving around eighteen-wheelers or other large trucks can be daunting, especially at higher speeds. While most of these vehicles are completely safe, they do get into crashes, often due to driver or truck company error.
When these vehicles crash, they are likely to cause serious injuries to passengers inside of regular vehicles. Consider the following injuries:
The immediate and long-term treatment of these injuries can lead to major medical bills and other hidden crash costs. This can include things like:
We want to make mention that large trucks often carry hazardous materials (oil, gasoline, ethanol, biohazardous waste, nuclear material, etc.). A crash with a truck carrying hazardous materials can quickly become a widespread disaster.
Because of their size and weight, truck companies must be vigilant when it comes to regular inspections and maintenance. Yes, drivers always do a pre-trip check, but there should be regular mechanic checks as well. If one of these vehicles experiences system failure while moving at high speeds, the result can be disastrous.
Truck drivers must be properly licensed and follow all state and federal laws. This includes how much weight they can carry as well as how many hours they can drive before taking a break or sleeping. Under no circumstances should a driver be impaired by alcohol or drugs or driving distracted.
After a crash that was caused by a truck driver or due to vehicle failure, we know that the last thing you need to worry about is whether or not you can afford the expenses. Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates is going to step in and ensure you are treated fairly. This means fair compensation for the following:
