TRUCKING COMPANY NEGLIGENCE

TRUCK ACCIDENT ATTORNEY SERVING OCALA, FL

After an accident with a tractor-trailer, you know something went terribly wrong. However, the truck driver may not be the person responsible for your accident. Trucking companies often make choices that put their drivers and other people in danger. You need an experienced lawyer to conduct a thorough investigation and get to the bottom of your case. Attorney Steven Wingo has protected the rights of truck accident victims since 1994. Having handled hundreds of these cases, he knows what to look for and how to maximize your compensation. He is not afraid to take on the big trucking companies.

HOLDING TRUCKING COMPANIES RESPONSIBLE

Trucking companies have a lot of responsibilities they must fulfill when it comes to the maintenance of their trucks and the safety standards followed by their drivers. They are required by law to keep track of truck maintenance and driver habits. You want a lawyer who will conduct a thorough investigation into the trucking company and determine if cost-cutting measures or negligence led to your crash.

Even if the driver is responsible for the conditions that led to the accident, the trucking company may still be held liable. The failure to properly train and supervise employees falls squarely on the shoulders of the company itself. In many cases, you want to be able to take a case against the trucking company—instead of an individual driver—because these companies have more coverage. This makes it more likely that you can recover the full amount of your damages. This also means that trucking companies have more resources to fight back, so make sure you are prepared and work with a heavyweight lawyer.
