Boca Raton Rear End Collisions Lawyer for Truck Accident Cases

While getting rear-ended can be dangerous under any circumstances, it can be especially dangerous when the vehicle that rear ends you is a large commercial truck. These trucks are big, heavy and hard to stop, and this increases the risk of serious accident-related injuries.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck in South Florida, you should speak with a Boca Raton rear end collisions lawyer about your legal rights. While you may be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries, you will need experienced legal representation to recover the compensation you deserve.

Common Causes of Rear End Collisions Involving Commercial Trucks

Several factors can lead to commercial truck accidents involving rear end collisions. Many (but not all) of these factors fall into the realm of truck driver negligence. Truck drivers are responsible for rear-end collisions in most cases, and trucking companies can be held accountable when their employees are to blame.

For example, some of the most common causes of rear end collisions involving commercial trucks include:

  • Aggressive or reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while fatigued (or falling asleep behind the wheel)
  • Tailgating
  • Speeding

Along with truck driver negligence, truck defects can also play a role in rear-end collisions in some cases. There are other possible causal factors as well. Some examples of additional issues that can cause (or contribute to causing) rear end collisions involving commercial trucks include:

  • Brake failures
  • Debris, gravel or water on the road
  • Exceeding the truck’s gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)
  • Poor visibility
  • Tire blowouts

Regardless of the factor (or factors) that led to your accident, a Boca Raton rear end collisions lawyer at The Grife Law Firm can fight to recover just compensation on your behalf. After conducting a thorough investigation, your lawyer will determine which party (or parties) are accountable, and then your lawyer will use his or her experience to pursue your claim as efficiently as possible.

Your Rights As the Victim of a Rear End Truck Accident

If you are the victim of a rear end truck accident, you have clear legal rights under Florida law. Your Boca Raton rear end collisions lawyer can help you assert these rights while also helping you avoid mistakes that could jeopardize your financial recovery.
