Miami, Plantation & Fort Lauderdale, Florida
An average of 5,000 truck accidents occur on Florida roadways every year. Many of these result in serious injuries. Sadly, many more result in death to the drivers and passengers of smaller vehicles.
Fort Lauderdale truck accident attorney Joseph Lipsky is dedicated to helping victims of serious injury get maximum compensation. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in a truck accident, we are prepared to take your case as far as necessary to get you the fair settlement you deserve.
Truck Accident Causes
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, top causes of truck accidents include:
- Drug use
- Driver fatigue
- Illegal maneuvering
- Driver distraction
- Aggressive driving
Additional causes include overweight or improperly secured loads, vehicle defects or safety malfunctions, dangerous roadways, and poor vehicle maintenance.
Truck Accident Liability
With so many potential factors in a truck accident, liability is seldom black and white. Even things like driver fatigue that may seem to implicate a driver can be brought about by unrealistic schedules placed by truck company management, making them just as liable for truck accident damages.
Every potentially liable party in a truck accident will have attorneys and insurance companies working to cheat you out of a decent settlement. Remember, insurance companies are interested in protecting their bottom line, not in your recovery. By contrast, our Fort Lauderdale truck accident attorney is only concerned with your recovery and he is prepared to do whatever it takes to see you get every penny you deserve.
At the Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky, we work with a team of experts and consultants to investigate truck accidents. In this way, we can properly identify all liable parties. This may include the trucker, the company he works for, the company that loaded the trailer, parts manufacturers, mechanics, and even government entities. We have over two decades of experience identifying negligence and standing up to insurance companies to ensure our clients get maximum compensation.
