Palm Beach County attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with commercial trucks are always subject to heightened scrutiny because of the additional regulations placed on drivers of those vehicles. Unfortunately in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences. If you have been injured in an accident, call my office for a free consultation to find out what are your rights”.”.
