Naples Truck Accident Lawyer

Commercial trucks are powerful vehicles. This is obvious to anyone who has ever seen a fully-loaded 18-wheeler cruising down the highway. But all that size and weight makes a commercial truck especially dangerous in the event of a collision with smaller passenger vehicles. Indeed, your typical car or light truck has virtually no protection against an impact with a semi-truck.

While there are a number of factors that can lead to an accident, negligence on the part of a truck driver or truck owner often plays a critical role in these collisions. An experienced Naples truck accident lawyer can help you look into the circumstances surrounding your crash and hold any negligent parties accountable for your losses. The Pendas Law Firm represents people throughout Collier County who have suffered serious losses as the result of a commercial trucking accident–and we will make every effort to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Examining All Possible Causes of a Commercial Trucking Accident

Unlike most passenger cars, commercial trucks are strictly regulated by state and federal laws. These regulations include a number of provisions designed to promote safe driving. Yet we often find that failure to follow either the spirit or the letter of the law can lead to a catastrophic accident.

One of the most common factors cited in preventable truck accidents is driver fatigue. Commercial truckers are often pushed to their limits in order to meet strict delivery schedules. Federal rules limit how many hours a driver can spend behind the wheel without taking a break or stopping to rest. Yet we have seen time and again over-tired drivers making mistakes at critical moments behind the wheel, leaving a wake of destruction in their paths.

Some other common factors cited in commercial trucking accidents include drug and alcohol use, speeding, and distracted driving. Many of these factors are common to regular car accidents as well. But again, it is important to emphasize how uniquely reckless such behaviors are when behind the wheel of an 80,000-pound truck.

It is also important to consider non-driver factors that contributed to an accident as well. For example, a commercial truck may be over its legal weight. Or the cargo was not properly loaded and secured, leading to sudden shifts in the vehicle’s weight during transport. Or the truck itself may not have been properly maintained by owners looking to cut costs. All of these factors and more need to be fully investigated and considered when determining legal responsibility for a truck accident.
