Unqualified Truck Drivers

Do you work with someone who causes you to wonder "How did he or she get this job?" on a regular basis? This problem is not limited to certain companies, industries or regions. It happens across Florida, throughout the United States and around the world. But for some professions, such as truck driving, incompetence is a matter of life and death, not a nuisance.

It used to be much more difficult to be a commercial truck driver, but licensing regulations have become less stringent as employers have sought ways to save transportation costs. As a result, we are sharing the road with truck drivers who may not have been qualified to transport goods throughout our state in a past generation.

These problems are compounded by the fact that trucking companies are willing to hire almost anyone who shows up. The trucking companies do not care about how products get there but only about how fast. That is why there are stimulants sold in every gas station — so truckers can push themselves longer, in order to get the goods there quicker, but not safer.

What Matters To You?

Regardless of how talented or qualified a driver is, what matters to you is that you have suffered an injury at the hands of a negligent truck driver. At the Law Office of Chris Crawford in Pensacola, we understand your needs and will fight aggressively to maximize your compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

We will not take the quick settlement the insurance company offers like other attorneys. We will press ahead to trial in order to secure a verdict or subsequent settlement that provides you with the resources you need to make as full a recovery as possible for catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures or burn injuries.
