Florida is one of the most dangerous states for fatal trucking accident attorney in the United States. In 2019 alone, nearly 32,000 accidents involved a large truck, causing almost 1,500 injuries. Because of the size and the weight of trucks, tractor-trailers and 18-wheelers, individuals involved in accidents with these types of vehicles are often faced with catastrophic and sometimes fatal injuries.

Protecting You From The Trucking Tactics

Commercial truck drivers must follow numerous federal and state regulations, and are often held to higher safe driving standards than your average driver.
When a truck driver is in an accident, trucking companies work very hard to reduce liability and take these claims very seriously, often doing everything the can to minimize recoveries you may receive.
Our team not only understands the tactics trucking companies use, but he also knows how to determine the real reason for your accident.

Factors that often result in serious or fatal trucking accidents include:

  • Fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Cellphone use or other distractions
  • Poor training
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Improperly loaded trailer
  • Unbalanced load
  • Tire blowout or other vehicle maintenance issue

Drawing from our extensive resources, our team will collaborate with investigators, medical specialists and other experts to build your case. We know what questions to ask to get the results we need for you, including financial compensation for your medical treatment, lost wages and other damages (Florida Statute 324.023).
