Truck Driving and Speeding

Truck drivers are often under a lot of pressure to deliver their goods by strict deadlines. If they get behind, these drivers drive above the speed limit to make sure they meet their deadlines. Unfortunately, speeding can lead to accidents. While it’s important for all motorists to follow the speed limit, it’s especially necessary for truck drivers. Commercial trucks weigh tens of thousands of pounds, so they are more challenging to stop. These trucks can also tip over if they are going too fast on curves or turns.

In certain situations, it may be necessary for truck drivers to drive slower than the speed limit. For example, rain can make the roads more slippery and reduce visibility. Truck drivers who reduce their speed are less likely to get into an accident.

When truck drivers don’t obey the posted speed limit and cause an accident, they may be held liable for the injured victim’s damages. 

What to Do If You Were Injured by a Speeding Truck Driver

If you were injured in an accident caused by a speeding truck driver, it’s critical to get immediate medical attention. You may have suffered severe injuries that require extensive treatment. A doctor will diagnose your injuries and recommend the appropriate treatment plan.

Then, you may want to consult a truck accident lawyer in El Monte, CA from Glotzer & Leib, LLP about your case. A lawyer can help you gather necessary evidence, locate witnesses and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. Be completely honest with your lawyer and don’t leave out any details. The more information your lawyer knows, the better he or she can help you.

It may also be helpful to write about the accident in a journal. Jot down anything you may remember about what happened before and after the accident. For instance, if you noticed the truck driver was talking on a cellphone before the accident occurred, write that information down. You might also want to write about how your injuries have affected your life thus far.

      “Mr. Glotzer represented me after I was involved in a car accident. I was badly injured,but the insurance company refused to offer me a reasonable settlement. I decided to find an attorney and decided to hire Josh.

      His law firm did a great job on my case. They were very responsive to all my questions and obtained a great resolution for me. I received way more money than was originally offered. I would recommend their firm to friends and family.”

      “Don’t try to deal with insurance companies on your own. They strung me along for almost two years before I gave the case to Glotzer & Leib. Josh and his team quickly obtained a settlement that netted me many times what the insurance company was offering. Thank You!”
