Truck accidents and collisions caused by blowouts, truck driver violations, and unsafe loads are common and result in a significant number of personal injury and wrongful death claims every year.

It is never too early to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer to represent you. Many commercial trucking firms have an investigator at the accident site before you are even checked into your hospital room. Evidence of the trucking company’s liability that could be found at the scene may not be preserved. Our firm has a thorough understanding of federal and state trucking law and a strong commitment to achieving positive results for injured people in negotiations and in trial. Drivers must keep accurate logs and load weight must fall into required specifications by state and federal guidelines. Additionally serious truck accident can be caused by a driver’s abuse of drugs or aggressive driving. Contact an experienced Miami truck accident injury attorney to help determine if any of these factors were within state and federal guidelines and in determining the fault of trucking company.

When a heavy truck (18-wheeler, semi, or tractor-trailer) crashes into an automobile or motorcycle, the result is almost always catastrophic injury or death. That being said the cost of medical treatment and ongoing care in cases involving spinal cord injuries (including paraplegia and quadriplegia), brain injuries, and loss of limbs are typically very high. You may have grounds for a lawsuit to recover actual damages and punitive damages, which can compensate you for all expenses, past and future, resulting from your accident.
