Jacksonville Deadly Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Who is Responsible for Fatal Accidents Involving Commercial Vehicles in Jacksonville?

Unfortunately, it is well known that commercial vehicles, such as 18-wheelers, are often responsible for many of the fatal traffic accidents that occur in the U.S. And yet, a recent study reveals that these collisions are even more prevalent than once suspected. Even though commercial trucks make up a small fraction of the vehicles on U.S. roads at any given time (about four percent), at least 12 percent of fatal accidents involve a big rig or other commercial motor carrier. That’s more than 4,000 deaths, which is far from a negligible amount.

How Do Commercial Truck Accidents Happen?

The commercial trucking industry is governed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which enforces extensive regulations regarding the safe operation of such notoriously dangerous vehicles. However, no matter how many laws exist, the driver ultimately bears responsibility for obeying federal regulations. A single violation can cause irreversible damage. Truck driver fatigue and distraction are the most common causes of commercial vehicle accidents, which can be prevented as long as the truck driver does not violate the industry’s standard safety regulations.

What to do After a Truck Crash in Jacksonville?

The trucking industry has a poor reputation for not only causing a significant number of fatal collsions, but also for providing poor compensation for those who are seriously or fatally injured. To protect your right to full and fair restitution after a truck crash, it may be necessary to speak with a dedicated Jacksonville truck accident attorney to explore your options for legal action. The insight you gain from an experienced legal team will help you make an informed decision about how to move forward with your recovery.
