Delray Beach Truck Accident
Truck drivers are not inherently dangerous—in fact, with their training, education, and mandatory background checks, they are often some of the safest and most courteous drivers on the road. Like all motorists, however, they are not impervious to accidents. When 18-wheelers are involved in collisions, they tend to cause a lot of damage, mostly due to their size, weight, and destructive capacity.
If you sustained injuries in an accident with a truck, we understand that you are likely experiencing pain, both physical and emotional. Our job is to make sure financial stress does not compound your current difficulties. We want to get your life back to normal as quickly as possible, and it starts with getting you the financial award you deserve for your truck accident losses.

The Parties Responsible for Your Truck Accident Injury
When you hire a Delray Beach truck accident lawyer from Ben Crump Law, PLLC, they will start by conducting a full investigation into your truck accident. This will give us the foundation we need to build a thorough, compelling case on your behalf. Our first order of business is to identify every party that might share the responsibility for your accident. Once we have done that, we can start gathering evidence against them and begin pursuing them and their insurers for a fair financial award.
The Truck Driver
The truck driver is often the first person we look at. Because they were behind the wheel, there is a high probability that their actions in some way contributed to your injuries, making them fully or partly liable for your losses.
We will determine if they violated a traffic law or were somehow acting with negligence at the time of the accident. We will also search their logbook—a detailed register all truckers must keep current—for evidence of violations we can use to hold them accountable.
The Trucking Company
Since the truck driver who hit you was most likely working for a company, either as an employee or as an owner-operator, we might be able to hold their employer vicariously liable for the actions of the driver behind the wheel.
The Truck Manufacturer
We might be able to pursue a financial award from the truck manufacturer as well. If one of the contributing factors in your accident was a defective truck component—for instance, faulty brakes—we can hold the manufacturer liable.
Other Responsible Parties
We will launch our investigation into your Delray Beach truck accident with the mindset that anyone could be liable. Our list of potentially responsible parties is not limited to those featured above. Every accident has unique circumstances, which is why we start every investigation from scratch and make no assumptions. If someone’s actions contributed to your injuries, we will find out.
