Our Skilled Fort Lauderdale Rental Truck Accident Attorneys Can Help.

Most of the time, drivers of commercial trucks must obtain the appropriate driver’s license outlined by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the regulations in Florida. However, there is one exception. People that use rental trucks such as U-Hauls and Budget trucks, do not have to carry a special type of license first, although they must have a standard driver’s license. If you have been involved in a crash, our Fort Lauderdale rental truck accident lawyer can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

Our Fort Lauderdale Rental Truck Accident Lawyer Explains the Danger of These Vehicles

Rental trucks may not be as large as tractor-trailers or semi-trucks, but they are still very large and heavy. Like other types of commercial trucks, they require a great deal of skill and experience to operate. Unfortunately, people do not need these rental trucks all the time. They are usually only used once a year or so, whether to move storage into an off-site facility, move their belongings, or for other purposes. As such, people do not know how to drive these vehicles and do not understand the special considerations that come with them.

Just as with any type of commercial vehicle, the injuries that result from a rental truck accident are usually quite serious. Back injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even paralysis are not uncommon. It is for this reason that all drivers should exercise caution any time they are around a rental truck.

Our Fort Lauderdale Rental Truck Accident Lawyer Can Determine Liability for Your Crash

Many people assume that the rental truck driver is always at fault for an accident, and that is often true. Rental trucks are very big and very heavy, and most people are not used to operating a vehicle of that size. When drivers operate the truck while they are distracted, or they speed or make an improper lane change, the driver of the truck can be held liable for paying damages.

Like in other commercial truck accident cases though, the rental truck company can also be held liable. Like other trucking companies, rental truck agencies must perform regular inspections of their entire fleet, and perform regular maintenance to ensure no part of the truck is defective. Unlike other trucking companies, rental truck agencies must also ensure the drivers they rent vehicles to will drive the truck safely. This means making sure renters have a proper driver’s license and that they are not underage. Any time a rental truck company fails to comply with these requirements, they can be held liable.
