Commercial Truck Crashes in Tampa, FL

Commercial tractor-trailer, or truck, crashes are severe and cause immediate and devastating consequences. In 2009 in Florida alone, there were more than 3,200 reported crashes involving large trucks and buses. Trucks can weigh anywhere from 20 to 40 times the weight of the vehicles that they collide with on our roadways. These truck crashes can often be traced back to a failure on the part of the driver or the trucking company to follow laws that were specifically enacted to prevent the injuries that they have caused. Each and every driver and motor carrier operating a commercial motor vehicle, including straight trucks, tractors and semi-trailers (“semis” or “18-wheelers”) must follow specific laws, as set forth in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, that are more strict than the laws that apply to regular automobiles and drivers. Our attorneys have experience investigating and litigating truck crashes throughout the State of Florida and the nation.

Why do you need an experienced trucking lawyer to handle your case? Because a trucking company will spare no expense in immediately investigating the crash and preparing its defense. They will hire attorneys, engineers, and trucking experts, oftentimes while our clients are still in the hospital trying to recover after the crash. You need attorneys with the resources and ability to meet and exceed the trucking company’s efforts. You need attorneys who will know which documents to request and which questions to ask. Our attorneys know the laws that trucking companies are required to follow and have taken truck crash cases to trial on behalf of both trucking companies and plaintiffs. Has your attorney litigated and taken to trial a truck crash case before? You should know, because the trucking company will.
