Speeding Truck Accident Injury Claims Lawyer

The faster a vehicle travels, the longer distance it will require to stop. Speed also impacts control of a vehicle and the ability to maneuver or avoid collisions. When the vehicle is a large truck weighing up to 80,000 pounds, high speeds are extremely dangerous. Speeding trucks can put others on the road in jeopardy. When a truck accident is caused by high speeds, the driver and their employer could be held liable for damages caused by the accident.

Large trucks are difficult to control under the best circumstances, which is why drivers are required to have a special license and training. Speed restrictions are imposed on all vehicles to promote safety on the roads, and large trucks often have more stringent speed restrictions than other vehicles. Even five or ten MPH over the speed limit can greatly impact a large truck’s performance when it comes to handling and stopping. When truck drivers ignore the speed limits, they are acting negligently and may be putting others on the road at risk.

Personal Injury Lawsuits for Speeding Truck Accidents

When a large truck rear-ends another vehicle due to speeding or a truck driver loses control of their vehicle due to high speeds, serious injuries and fatalities are not uncommon. In a study of large truck fatality accidents conducted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), 23% of the fatality accidents were attributed to traveling too fast for conditions. In most large truck fatality accidents, those fatally injured are occupants of other vehicles.

In speeding truck accident lawsuits, it is vital to have a personal injury attorney that will look at all angles to fight for your right to compensation. It may be necessary to provide expert witnesses to calculate stopping distances and the speed of the truck and other factors in the case. Negligence of the driver and their employer may be integral to the case. If you have been injured in a speeding truck accident, contact Dwayne L.

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
