Lakeland Trucking Accident Attorneys

When driving anywhere in Florida, the one thing you cannot avoid are semi-trucks. Although the majority of these trucks are carefully inspected by the corporate company and the drivers thoroughly trained in safe driving, the reality is that accidents do happen.

Trucking accidents can be the result of either driver negligence (including speeding, falling asleep at the wheel, driving while distracted by a phone call, or failing to stop) or negligence from the company owning the truck.

Unfortunately, many trucking accident victims do not understand this second category of negligence and thus overlook an important component of their claim for compensation. For example, if the trucking company fails to follow mandatory routine inspections of the truck and a trucking accident is caused by a mechanical failure, the company can be held liable for your injuries caused by their negligent act. Even if the trucking accident is caused by human error, the trucking company can be held liable if it can be shown that they were negligent in hiring the driver (such as failing to check his driving record). An experienced Polk County trucking accident attorney such as James O. Cunningham will be able to analyze your claim in light of both negligence options.

Regardless of how the trucking accident occurs, when a semi-truck collides with an automobile, the results are typically severe, if not catastrophic. Besides the severe damage caused to your vehicle, the personal injuries can be life-altering. Many trucking accidents leave the victim with ongoing neck and back injuries and, even worse, brain damage. On top of the physical pain and suffering there are the insurmountable medical bills and loss of wages that a trucking accident victim soon faces.

When faced with such a situation, and when the trucking company’s insurance carrier is pressuring you to accept a settlement offer that you are not comfortable with, it is time to call your trucking accident lawyer. Working with an experienced trucking accident attorney will be able to provide a comprehensive review of your case and confidence in your settlement decisions.
