South Miami Truck Driver Fatigue
Truck driver fatigue is a common cause of many serious truck accidents. Drivers of big rigs and tractor-trailers have a very demanding job and sometimes feel pressured to make deliveries on time, even to the point of violating federal rules that limit how long truck drivers are allowed to stay on the road before they must rest. When truck drivers violate the rules or fail to take care of their health and drive fatigued as a result, serious truck accidents and car accidents in South Miami and other communities are the common result.

In many commercial truck accident cases, it is especially important to seek all liable parties in order to increase the chances that a survivor of a collision will get fair compensation. There may be multiple liable parties in your traffic collision, including:
- Other motorists driving passenger vehicles
- The truck driver
- The motor carrier
- The company renting the truck
- The company who maintained the truck
- The manufacturer of the truck or truck component that failed
- The municipality or location where the crash took place (if road conditions were a factor)
The best way to determine liable parties in your situation and to find out what you can do in your case is to contact a personal injury attorney in South Miami or your community. A personal injury attorney usually works with private investigators, accident reconstruction experts, and other professionals. Together, these professionals can get you answers about your traffic collision but can also help you build a strong case and can help you determine the likely long-term costs of your injuries. An injury attorney can negotiate with insurance carriers, can help you build a strong case and can help you file a legal claim. An experienced lawyer can also help you understand all your legal options so that you can make a knowledgeable decision about what to do next.
In addition to getting medical help and in addition to reporting your accident, one of the first things you should do after a serious traffic collision is to contact a personal injury attorney for legal advice. This is because in addition to protecting your health and safeguarding your insurance claim amount, you will want to protect your legal rights as well, and a personal injury attorney can help you with that.
