What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Truck Driver Error Lawyer

Truck Driver Error/Negligence

Colliding with a large truck is a terrifying experience at best; at worst, it is fatal. Because of the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks, the aftermath of accidents caused by trucker error tends to be quite lopsided. The Federal Department of Transportation has stated that more than three-quarters of the fatalities caused by truck accidents in 2005 were passengers in smaller vehicles.

Causes of Truck Driver Error

At the offices of Jacksonville truck driver error attorney Don Guthrie, we realize that many different factors play into serious accidents, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Abuse of alcohol, amphetamines, or other drugs
  • Speeding to meet a deadline
  • Inexperience and fraud, including use of a fake commercial driver’s license

Unfortunately, even though truck drivers have a potentially very dangerous job, they are often pressured to finished routes on time far more than they are pressured to drive safely. This creates a very risky situation not only for them, but for every other driver on the road.

Seeking Justice

If you have been injured by a negligent truck driver, it is not fair for you to suffer pain, disability, and financial loss all because of someone else’s mistake. A truck driver negligence suit will not be able to undo your painful experience, but it will help you regain the money lost to medical expenses and missed work or a lost job.

More importantly, it can be your opportunity to hold the person who injured you responsible for his or her actions. If you believe you may have grounds for a truck accident lawsuit, contact Jacksonville truck driver negligence attorney Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088 today.
