Practice Areas - Truck Accident Lawyer
Florida Truck Accident Attorney
Trucking accidents happen when large trailers
crash into other vehicles or pedestrians. The severe nature of the
ensuing injuries and the damages specific to these sorts of accidents
necessitate the experience and expertise of specialized legal counsel.
Truck accident lawyers are attorneys who have the background necessary
to successfully help people who have been affected by trucking accidents.
If you or someone you love is involved in a trucking accident, your
first step - after receiving medical attention - should be finding
a qualified and capable truck accident lawyer.
Beware Shady Trucking Company Tactics
Immediately after an accident involving one of their trucks occurs,
trucking companies send representatives out to intercept the injured
or affected parties before they acquire legal representation. These
unscrupulous tactics are usually employed with the hopes of preventing
injured people from seeking the aid of truck accident lawyers. While
most trucking companies observe the law and all federal regulations,
there are always a few "bad apples" who routinely snub
their nose at such regulations - and then seek to silence the people
who suffer due to their negligence.
A rogue trucking company's most feared adversaries are professional,
talented truck accident lawyers. That is because an attorney who
has proven experience in these types of accidents knows all about
the various ways that trucking companies seek to avoid being held
accountable. Having a truck accident lawyer by your side, then,
is the wisest course of action in these types of situations. Never
agree to deal directly with a trucking company in the event of an
accident or other incident; always insist upon seeking legal counsel
Why Truck Accidents Occur
Truck accidents - those involving vehicles such as semi-trucks,
eighteen wheelers or other large trucks - happen for a variety of
reasons. Regardless of how they occur, though, well trained truck
accident lawyers can help you plot the best course of action - and
protect your legal rights. Whether the accident was caused by driver
error or faulty equipment, an attorney who is skilled in dealing
with truck accident cases will know the law and how it applies to
your specific situation.
Although driver error is sometimes the reason for a truck accident,
many others are caused by trucking companies who do not insist upon
adhering to federal regulations. Overloaded trucks are a common
problem; poorly inspected equipment is another one. Some trucking
companies even continue to hire drivers who have incredibly poor
driving records that are riddled with accidents and infractions
- putting innocent drivers like you at risk.
How Truck Accident Lawyers Can Help
By seeking the legal counsel of professional
truck accident lawyers, you are protecting your legal rights and
might even be protecting other drivers from unsafe trucking practices.
It is vitally important that unscrupulous trucking companies be
held accountable for the injuries they cause. If you are the unfortunate
victim of a truck accident, make finding an experienced truck accident
lawyer your number one priority; do it for your safety, and for
the future safety of other drivers.
