Hold the right parties accountable for truck accidents in Ocala

Semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles are vital components of our nation's economy. They allow producers and manufacturers to transport their goods across the nation for sale. It is almost amazing to consider that a person in Ocala could eat a strawberry grown on the other side of the country. However, it is an unfortunate fact that semi-truck drivers and truck companies engage in dangerous or even illegal behaviors in an attempt to make greater profits in a shorter period of time.

Some trucking companies compensate truck drivers per mile travelled. Because of this, some truckers, eager to make more money, will operate their vehicles in a way that is unsafe. For example, they may drive for long hours without taking a break to rest. Many accidents involving semi-trucks are caused by driver fatigue. Drivers may also speed, improperly load their vehicles or abuse drugs or alcohol in an effort to make quicker deliveries. Moreover, truck companies may not properly maintain their vehicles.

A fully loaded semi-truck can weigh tens of thousands of pounds, making crashes involving these vehicles very catastrophic. For examine, individuals injured in trucking accidents could suffer brain injuries, internal injuries, or spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis or even death.

When an accident is caused by a negligent truck driver, it is important to hold the truck driver and the trucking company responsible, if applicable. The professionals at Dock Blanchard & Trip Green, Personal Injury Trial Lawyers, have experience in investigating the circumstances surrounding their clients' cases, and they have used their knowledge of the law to determine the cause of the crash and assist their clients in seeking fair compensation. Being involved in a commercial vehicle accident can be catastrophic, physically, mentally and emotionally so it is important to hold the right parties accountable for their actions.
