Jacksonville Trucking Accident Lawyer

Commercial and semi-trucks account for only three percent of vehicles on the road in Florida but are involved in nine percent of all fatal auto accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Typically, the fatality is the driver or a passenger of the automobile, not the trucker. Truck accidents can also result in catastrophic injuries for the people in the smaller vehicle.

If you have been involved in an accident caused by a commercial truck, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. No matter what the cause, our Jacksonville personal injury attorney can help you pursue compensation for damages such as lost wages, medical expenses, and rehabilitation. In the case that you tragically lost a loved one in a truck accident, we can help you pursue compensation for wrongful death.

Causes of Truck Accidents

Various factors cause truck accidents, and therefore, different parties can be held responsible for the injuries sustained by the victim. If a driver is not properly trained, the proper handling of the vehicle is diminished, which can result in driver error and an accident. Similarly, if the big rig is not correctly maintained, then the performance of the vehicle is decreased and the chance of an auto accident occurring is increased. In such circumstances, the truck company can be held responsible if an improperly trained driver causes the accident. The truck driver can be held liable if driver fatigue, drunk driving, or drug use is found to be the cause of the accident. The manufacturer of the vehicle's parts can also be liable for injuries if faulty equipment caused the truck to go out of control.

Regardless of the cause of the accident, our firm can help you pursue just compensation for the injuries you have suffered. Our Jacksonville truck accident lawyer can help you recover damages for lost wages, loss of earning capacity, medical bills, and pain and suffering. With more than 28 years of experience, our lawyer is prepared to lead you through each step of your case. Do not hesitate to fill out our free case evaluation on our website.
