Truck Accidents Kill Or Injure Thousands In Florida

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation there were 389 large trucks involved in fatal accidents in 2005 in the State of Florida. These truck accidents resulted in 406 deaths. There were over 4,500 large trucks involved in non-fatal Florida truck accidents. About 3,000 large truck accidents resulted in injuries in Florida, and almost 5200 people were injured in those Florida truck accidents.

For those injured or the families of those who are killed in truck accidents, choosing an attorney experienced in litigation against trucking companies is critical when seeking justice and compensation. The insuring arrangements, employment and lease contracts, trucking company policies and procedures, and federal and state trucking regulations governing the trucking industry are complex and confusing. An attorney’s knowledge and experience in dealing with the trucking industry and its many varied forms is critical to successful resolution of personal injury and wrongful death claims in these tragic cases. Legal representation in a trucking accident requires far more skill and knowledge of the trucking industry and its standards and practices, than in a run of the mill automobile accident. Only a trained and experienced truck accident attorney can properly and thoroughly investigate a serious tractor trailer accident.

Be sure you have an attorney with real experience investigating and prosecuting trucking companies, drivers, and truck accidents if you or a loved one are involved in an accident with a tractor trailor or other large truck.
