Causes of Truck Accidents

Accidents Caused by Drugs

When you have been injured in a truck accident, and it is determined that drug use on the part of the truck driver was contributing factor, it is in your best interest to contact a Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney who can help you file a claim for injury compensation. At Weinstein & Scharf, P.A., our legal team has over 85 years of combined experience in representing those who have been injured in accidents. We have filed countless personal injury cases, including many that have involved collisions with large trucks. Our firm is available to provide you with legal counsel in the aftermath of your truck accident.

Many truck accidents are caused by some form of negligence on the part of the truck driver, including driving recklessly, driving while fatigued, or driving while under the influence of alcohol. Another factor that contributes to these accidents is the use of drugs. In order to be able to drive for an extended period of time without sleep, a number of truck drivers may take some form of stimulant drug to stay awake. These drugs can substantially affect one's mental capacity while driving, and increase the risk of an accident. Other Illegal street drugs also play a part in truck accidents, such as marijuana, meth and cocaine, as do prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Truck Accident Compensation

If a truck driver has taken an illegal drug and injured you in an accident, or has been affected enough by a legal medication to cause a collision, then there is a good chance that you will be entitled to compensation as an accident victim. It is to your benefit to hire an attorney who can work to establish fault on the part of the truck driver when it is in question. We can pursue compensation for damages on your behalf that will allow you to access the best of medical care and will address your emotional trauma and pain and suffering as well.
