Delray Beach, FL (May 16, 2023) – A 50-year-old man from Boca Raton, Florida, lost his life as a result of a truck crash that took place on Tuesday morning in Delray Beach.
The accident took place just before 5:30 a.m. on May 9.
Reports from Florida Highway Patrol show that a 2014 Dodge Caravan was involved in a collision with a Freightliner semi-truck tractor-trailer on the southbound side of Interstate 95. The Florida Highway Patrol shut down the roadway just past Linton Boulevard. A Toyota Camry then collided with the semi-truck.
The driver of the Dodge, a 50-year-old man, suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
At this time, the incident is being investigated by Florida Highway Patrol troopers.
Before our condolences to the family of the man who lost his life in this crash.
Truck crashes in the United States claimed the lives of more than 475 people every month. Unfortunately, the majority of these accidents involve some form of negligence. When negligence is the cause of a truck accident, families are able to take legal action. To be able to succeed when filing a wrongful death claim, families must be able to prove liability.
When it comes to determining liability in a truck accident, there are several key factors that must be considered. The first step is to determine the cause of the accident itself and whether any negligence was involved. This could include issues such as driver fatigue, distracted driving, poor vehicle maintenance, or faulty equipment.
Once the cause has been established, you will then need to identify which party or parties were responsible for that particular issue. For example, if the accident was caused by a tire blowout due to inadequate maintenance, then both the trucking company and manufacturer may bear some responsibility. Working with a national truck accident lawyer can provide you with the best chance of determining who is liable for the accident.
Your attorney will be able to conduct a thorough investigation into the crash. They will identify all of the factors that led to the accident taking place, and all of the liable parties and help you take aggressive legal action against them.
