Skilled attorneys, tenacious litigation, personal attention.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, we can help. Our attorneys are experienced in the investigation and prosecution of trucking accident claims. We are known for our responsiveness, thorough and hands-on litigation style, investigative and negotiating skills and our accessibility to our clients. We go wherever you need us to be.

Truck accident litigation involves claims against negligent truck drivers and the trucking companies who hire them. Under the laws of Florida and most states, a driver of a large truck is considered to have an even greater standard of care than other drivers, because of the injuries that their large trucks can cause. Collisions caused by a truck’s failure, faulty inspection and maintenance, or a truck driver’s negligence, can lead to catastrophic injuries.

Truck drivers break federal laws by driving:

  • while fatigued
  • in excess of the amount of hours they are allowed to drive
  • at an excessive speed
  • with overloaded or oversized trucks
  • improperly maintained trucks

When you put something as heavy as loaded tractor trailers on our roads at speeds topping 60 miles an hour, you get a potentially very dangerous situation, with a massive motor vehicle that can run over almost anything in its path. If you add the growing problem of driver fatigue and truck drivers’ being under constant pressure to move cargo – there can be deadly consequences to innocent victims sharing Florida's roads.

Damages that we will pursue for our truck accident victims and the victims’ family are entitled to recover may include: hospital and medical expenses; past and future lost earnings; past and future permanent physical disability; emotional distress, such as depression and anxiety; grief and emotional suffering caused by the death of a loved one; loss of love and companionship caused by the death of a loved one; damage or destruction of property; physical pain and suffering; and loss of enjoyment of life.

To protect your legal rights following catastrophic injury or death due to a truck accident, it is wise to consult a personal injury law firm with experience in truck accident lawsuits as soon as possible. Within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost, and witnesses may become hard to find. Our lawyers swiftly consult experts such as accident reconstruction experts to gather facts and begin a thorough and far-reaching investigation. Our truck accident attorneys speak with, and take depositions from, eye-witnesses and company employees. We leave no stone unturned. Once our investigation of the trucking accident is complete, we head into settlement negotiations or to trial with evidence on our side.

Our personal injury attorneys know how to prepare for and try the most complex truck accident cases. Today, with the ever-changing advancements in technology, there is a lot we can learn from analyzing minute details from a truck accident. Our attorneys and expert truck accident reconstructionists make use of the following types of informational tools to properly prepare our client’s cases: truck maintenance records, driving records, driving log books, driver employee records, drug test results, onboard computer (black box) data, Department of Transportation (DOT) data.

We work on a contingent fee basis, which means that there is never a fee that you have to pay unless we successfully resolve your truck accident case.
