Speeding Trucks Injury Lawyer

When a large semi-truck or other commercial truck is speeding, it poses a serious risk to others on the road. These mammoths on the highways are difficult to stop and control when they stay within the speed limits but become very dangerous when they reach high speeds. If a speeding commercial truck caused an injury or fatality accident that harmed you or someone you love, there are legal options to seek restitution for damages caused by the driver’s negligence.

In Florida, large trucks are allowed to go the same speed as passenger vehicles. This means a truck weighing up to 80,000 pounds may be legally traveling at 70 MPH on some highways. High speeds can be risky for large trucks. The excess weight and size of these vehicles makes it hard to swerve or stop at high speeds. Even when a commercial truck driver is within the speed limit, they can cause serious accidents if they are unable to effectively control their vehicle.

Determining Fault in a Large Truck Accident

Speed is one of the factors that can help determine who was at fault in an injury truck accident. If the driver of the truck was going above the speed limit, it can help prove that they had difficulty controlling the vehicle. However, if the truck was within the speed limit and it can be proven the driver could not stop in time or caused a collision due to the speed they were traveling, they could be liable for the accident. In addition, the trucking company that employs the driver may also be partially liable for the accident.

Speed and large trucks do not mix and can be deadly on the roadways. If you have been injured in a truck accident where speed was a factor, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today. We offer free consultations to discuss truck accident injury claims at our office in Tampa.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
