Law Offices of Richard Troutman
A highly specialized area of automobile accident law, trucking accident cases are generally complex and difficult, usually requiring extensive investigation and a detailed knowledge of vehicle codes and regulations. Our trucking accident attorneys in the Orlando area have both the expertise and the dedication necessary to assist those who have been injured in trucking accidents. At the Law Offices of Richard Troutman, we are able to handle all types of trucking accident cases, including those in which issues beyond strict driver negligence come into play. We can build cases around the full range of possible causes, including mechanical failures, insufficient driver training, oversized loads, violations of the Motor Carrier Safety Act, and other relevant issues.
Naturally, large trucks are more difficult to control than other motor vehicles, with trucks weighing in excess of 10,000 pounds being particularly prone to accidents. Indeed, many serious trucking accidents result from factors other than negligence on the part of the trucker. For example, large trucks are far more likely to be involved in deadly rollover accidents due to adverse weather or road conditions than smaller vehicles. Even under ideal driving conditions, large trucks generally have poor visibility and braking systems that can fail without warning. Although the truck driver involved in the accident may be experienced and qualified, such trucks still pose inherent dangers to both the driver and other vehicles on the road.
Of course, our trucking accident attorneys in the Orlando area also handle cases in which the truck driver was, in fact, negligent. In such cases, our attorneys can file suit against any or all parties sharing responsibility for the accident, including the truck driver and the trucking company. In many of these cases, the negligent driver was impaired by drugs, alcohol, lack of sleep, or some other avoidable influence. Our trucking accident attorneys in the Orlando area diligently research each case, using all available physical and medical evidence, witness reports, and other resources to construct the most compelling case possible. We work tirelessly to ensure that those whose negligent or careless actions caused the trucking accident are held accountable for the consequences.
