A big rig lost control causing a major accident that injured me. Can I recover in Florida against the driver of the big rig?
If it can be shown that the driver of a big rig was negligent then a claim can be brought against the driver. This happens all too often. Driver fatigue is a widespread problem for big rig drivers, with time constraints incentivizing drivers to log an unsafe amount of hours on the road every day. If the driver can be shown to have been driving in an unsafe manner or if he or she was under the influence of alcohol then negligence can be proven as well. These are just some examples of cases where the driver, as well as the trucking company and their insurance, can be sued for your injuries, lost wages, or even wrongful death following a truck accident in Florida. An aggressive truck accident lawyer can help prove driver negligence.
