Driver and carrier expectations for hazmat transport

Here at The King Law Firm, we’ve worked with many clients who’ve been left with devastating injuries as the result of truck accidents. If your accident involved a truck transporting hazardous materials, you may be wondering about the responsibility motor carriers have to protect you and others from such substances. The hazardous materials typically transported by truck are chemicals, flammable liquids, or radioactive compounds. Exposure to such materials can result in burns, poisoning, and even death.

Can you sue for wrongful death after having signed a waiver?

Marion County offers plenty of places of diversion for you and your family. Yet if one of your family members is killed on any of these properties after you have signed a waiver if liability, are you still able to pursue a wrongful death claim (provided that it is warranted)? Your immediate reaction may be to assume that you can’t, yet that’s not always the case.

How can you prove you didn’t cause a motorcycle accident?

Even as more and more motorcyclists are taking to the roads in Ocala, the image of the motorcycle rider being somewhat of a rebel still remains. This certainly can’t help you if you’re trying to prove you didn’t cause a motorcycle accident. When motorcycles and vehicles collide, it’s not uncommon for the motorists involved (as well as people who may not have seen the accident) to immediately place the blame on the motorcyclists. Statistics, however, seem to show that the fault for motorcycle-vehicle collisions tends to lie with drivers.

Reviewing the most common causes of truck accidents

The large semi-trucks and tractor-trailers people see driving in and around Marion County can present a real risk to the other vehicles on the roads around them. As a matter of fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that as recently as 2012, almost 108,000 people were either killed or injured in accidents involving these vehicles. Because of the massive size of their vehicles, truck drivers must be extremely attentive at all times in order to avoid trouble on the road. Indeed, when collisions with other vehicles do occur, driver error is often found to be the cause.
