Egypt Lake-Leto Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer
When a semi-truck crashes into a car, the people driving or riding in the car often suffer serious or fatal injuries. The truck’s far greater weight and size create a devastating impact that can cause extensive damage.
Unfortunately, serious truck accidents are common in the U.S. and Florida. Every year, large trucks are involved in about 5,000 fatal accidents throughout the United States, and Florida is one of the three leading states for fatalities in large-truck accidents.
In accidents involving semi-trucks where there are no fatalities, people are often severely injured. They may need medical procedures and long-term treatment. They can have chronic pain and depression and be unable to work or participate in many of the activities they used to do before the accident. The problems can seem overwhelming, but compassionate help is available.

WHO IS AT FAULT FOR AN EGYPT LAKE-LETO SEMI-TRUCK ACCIDENT?
To bring a truck accident claim against negligent parties for damages, you need know who was at fault for the accident. Then, you need to prove that their negligence partially or totally caused the accident.
A Dennis Hernandez Egypt Lake-Leto semi-truck accident lawyer has the experience and resources you need to investigate the accident, track down everyone who may have been at fault, and collect the evidence necessary to demonstrate negligence.
In cases where two cars collide, the at-fault party is usually one or both drivers. However, when a semi-truck collides with a passenger vehicle, there may be additional people or companies who could have acted negligently and might be held responsible for your injuries. These negligent parties may include the:
- Semi-truck’s owner
- Cargo’s owner
- Companies or individuals responsible for repairs and maintenance of the truck
- Manufacturers of the truck, brakes, wheels, and other parts
WHAT CAUSES SEMI-TRUCK CRASHES IN THE EGYPT LAKE-LETO AREA?
Most semi-truck crashes happen because someone acted negligently. Common examples of negligence that cause accidents and injuries include:
- Semi-truck drivers who drive while they are dangerously drowsy because they are under pressure to get to their destinations faster
- Semi-truck drivers who are speeding for the same reason – because they are in a hurry to deliver their cargo as quickly as possible
- Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or legal or illegal drugs
- Drivers sending or reading texts on their phones or doing other things that take their attention away from looking where they are going
- Tires, wheels, brakes, and other truck parts that fail because they were defectively made or improperly maintained or repaired
The Dennis Hernandez Egypt Lake-Leto semi-truck legal team has the resources and knowledge needed to thoroughly investigate the accident, find out who was at fault, and gather evidence to prove the at-fault parties’ negligence.
