Protecting Your Vital Rights After a Speeding Truck Injury Accident
Over-the-road, or commercial, trucking is huge business in the United States
today. In the past decade, revenue generated from commercial truck operations
in the United States has doubled to about $1.2 trillion annually.
Big rigs increase their profits the faster they make delivers. Efficiency
matters when it comes to a commercial truck enhancing its profitability.
Unfortunately, this drive to increase profitability oftentimes includes
drivers who break the law and speed on roadways in order to make more
deliveries in shorter periods of time.

Financial recovery after a speeding truck accident depends on the circumstances
surrounding the accident and the facts surrounding your injuries. With
that said, there are certain losses that a personal injury lawyer from
our firm at (800) 349-0000 commonly seek compensation for a client like you:

Our legal team does not stop getting you compensation for your existing
losses. We fight to obtain comprehensive financial recovery for you.
The consequences of a commercial truck accident can be profound and enduring.
You may find yourself facing ongoing medical care and treatment well into
the future. Your pain and suffering may be severe and chronic. You may
not be able to return to work any time soon. Indeed, you may never be
able to return to your current position of employment because of injuries
or a disability arising from the big rig accident. These all represent
the types of losses you reasonably can be expected to face and for which
you deserve compensation.
Our legal team may also fight for punitive damages in a speeding truck
accident injury case. Punitive damages are extra compensation in a situation
in which the conduct of the party or parties causing the accident is deemed
particularly reckless of egregious.
Who is Responsible for a Speeding Truck Injury Accident?
A rig driver who elects to break the law and speed while operating a commercial
truck is a party that will be deemed responsible for an accident caused
as a result of this conduct. The driver is not the only responsible party
when it comes to injuries you may have sustained in a speeding truck accident.
The owner of the truck or the trucking company will also bear legal responsibility
for your injuries, damages, and losses. There exist a principle in U.S.
law known as agency. Through this legal doctrine, an employer is responsible
for injuries caused to you by an employee when the conduct causing an
accident occurs during the course of employment.
In this day and age, truck owners and truck companies oftentimes put unreasonable
expectations on drivers that cause rig operators to speed and engage in
other dangerous conduct. If these types of policies can be demonstrated
to exist, a speeding truck accident lawyer from our firm may be in a position
to pursue punitive damages for you in your case.
