You've heard the saying- time is money?
Well, that is especially true in the trucking industry.
Producers and manufacturers know, getting their cargo from one point to another, as quickly as possible, helps protect the bottom line.
So big rig drivers are often under pressure. They speed, drive while drowsy or under the influence, or just behave recklessly behind the wheel.
The results can be devastating.
Catastrophic injury or death are not uncommon in a trucking accident, and property damage loss can run into the hundreds of millions.
Sadly, most of these accidents could have been prevented.
There are dozens of contributing factors, aside from the ones we've mentioned, and just as many potential injuries.
And the truck driver might not be the only responsible party.
Federal guidelines for the industry are strict, so the truck driver’s employer, as well as the cab owner, may also be liable.
If you've been injured in a trucking accident, you may be entitled to compensation. So call Miami personal injury attorney J.P. Gonzalez-Sirgo.
