We Handle all Trucking Accident Cases

Our law firm has helped people who were injured or lost loved ones in accidents caused by:

  • Inadequate truck driver training
  • Faulty or poorly maintained equipment such as tires, brakes and couplings
  • Reckless operation such as speeding and illegal lane changing
  • Improper loading and unloading of materials on loading docks
  • Improperly loaded trucks
  • Trucks parked without hazard lights and warnings
  • Violations of OSHA regulations and standards
  • Fatigued drivers who failed to take required rest breaks
  • Driver distraction and inattention

Factors like these can also cause crashes that involve other large vehicles such as earth movers and bulldozers, buses, tow trucks, garbage trucks, and delivery vans. No matter the type of vehicle involved, turn to us.

Why Call Our South Florida Law Firm?

You have a choice when hiring a lawyer. Here are two important reasons why you should talk to us:

  • Our lawyers know how to handle insurance companies. One of our attorneys once worked for an insurance defense firm and knows how insurers think. Insurance companies will fight hard to limit how much they pay out. Having an attorney with inside knowledge of the industry levels the playing field.
  • Our firm uses extensive resources to build a strong case. These resources can include accident reconstruction specialists, expert witnesses, truck company training and maintenance records, victim’s medical records, and the black box that monitors the truck’s operation.

To be sure, the trucking company will have its own team of experts in place to do all it can to prevent losses stemming from the accident. You need to be equally prepared with your own team of legal experts. That is what we can provide for you.

Vehicular Safety Resources in Florida

Distraction.gov, the official U.S. website on distracted driving, offers in-depth information on driving while operating electronics. Similar informative resources for vehicular safety can be found at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) publishes regulations for trucks and their operators in an effort to avoid crashes and accidents. The Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER) System database is home to information on accidents and records of safety for trucking companies. The FLHSMV website also offers Motorcycle safety tips. Additionally, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and the American Motorcyclist Association are also great resources that showcase the Florida motorcycle laws. Yield to Life is yet another website dedicated to cyclist and motorcyclist safety.
