Truck drivers are held to strict regulations and standards, and the regulations for trucking companies are strictly enforced. These include how many hours truckers are allowed to drive each day and the industry itself has put in place mandatory rest periods. Many companies also have drug and alcohol screening for their employees and are strict about use. A truck accident lawyer in Miami can help their client gain access to these records, and determine whether the truck driver was negligent in the case.
These regulations mean that the driver themselves may not be the only responsible party in your accident. According to the rules covering the trucking industry, the company that employs the driver may also hold some of the responsibility for the wreck. However, determining fault can be tricky, and the insurance companies for the trucking company and the individual driver don’t usually offer a settlement that covers all your medical bills. In order to receive the compensation for your hospital stay, and surgeries, and ongoing treatment after the fact, you need services from an experienced truck accident attorney in Miami.
