Fatal Truck Accidents in Florida

Auburndale, FL – Child Killed in Truck Crash at US-92 & Havendale BlvdFatal truck accidents claim thousands of lives across the United States annually, with over 5,600 fatalities recorded in 2022 due to commercial vehicle accidents. Negligence often plays a critical role in the majority of these accidents. Drivers who continue to engage in negligent actions often cause accidents that take the lives of innocent people. However, after a truck crash, it is imperative to conduct a thorough investigation to determine if the driver, alone or multiple parties, is liable for the resulting accident. Some parties who can be held accountable include:

  • Vehicle Manufacturer: In some instances, a defective vehicle component or mechanical failure may contribute to the accident. If it can be established that the accident was caused by a manufacturing defect or design flaw in the truck, the manufacturer or distributor of the vehicle or its parts could be held responsible.
  • Trucking Company: The trucking company that employs the driver can also be held liable in certain cases. If it can be proven that the company failed to properly train and supervise the driver, neglected to perform adequate background checks, or violated federal regulations regarding driver hours of service, they may be deemed partially responsible for the accident.
  • Truck Driver: The truck driver is often the first party examined for potential liability. If the driver was engaged in negligent actions such as speeding, distracted driving, driving under the influence, or violating traffic laws, they may be held responsible for the accident and subsequent loss of life.
