Commercial Transport Truck Accidents
Commercial transport truck accidents usually result in very serious injuries and, in some cases, fatalities. Examples of commercial transport trucks include delivery trucks, propane trucks, retail store deliveries, construction material trucks and gas tankers. Being involved in an accident with vehicles of this size can cause significant damage to vehicle, let alone the serious injuries you could sustain. South Florida is densely populated with much of its merchandise, produce and construction needs requiring transport. This means the crowded roads and highways have plenty of these vehicles partaking in the daily commute. We have all seen these trucks on the road but have not thought about the aftermath of an accident with one. You will want to speak with a team that is experienced in these matters.

Any investigation of a commercial transport truck accident can be expensive and time-consuming. One thing that you should know at the outset is that commercial transport vehicle owners and insurers will dedicate the necessary financial resources to defend any personal injury actions against the company or the driver.
Commercial transport truck accident lawyers must be dedicated and committed to conducting a thorough investigation including:
- an inspection of the truck involved in the accident by several different experts depending on the facts of the accident
- a thorough examination of the maintenance, inspection, and repair records or work orders for the trailer and tractor on the day of the accident as well as the six months before the accident happened
- annual inspection reports for the truck must be obtained and reviewed
- any interchange agreements regarding the truck, tractor or trailer involved in the accident must be obtained
- a complete investigation into any data and or print out from on board recording devices such as any recording or tracking device from the day of the accident and the six months before as well as any engine electronic control modules and any onboard computer monitors or recorders
- review all post-accident inspection maintenance or repair records, including invoices, regarding the subject trailer, tractor or truck
- the complete review of trip envelopes, dispatch records or trip reports regarding the driver or the truck on the day of the accident or the 30 days before
- obtain and review the accident register maintained by the owner as required by federal law on the date of the accident and the one year before
Although time-consuming the investigation into all the details concerning the driver or the truck is necessary in the pursuit of any personal injury or wrongful death claim arising out of a commercial transport truck accident.Commercial Transport Truck Accident Attorneys
