Commercial Truck Accidents Happen Everywhere, Even Here In The Sunshine State

It is intimidating to get next to, behind, or in front of a commercial truck on the highway. The total size of the vehicles is scary enough, but when the big-rigs are swerving, speeding, or weaving in and out of traffic, the situation can feel that much more intense. People have a right to be worried though. If a truck operator is driving erratically and recklessly, sooner or later, an accident is sure to occur. 

Unfortunately, when collisions do happen with eighteen-wheelers, they are usually not minor little fender benders. Passenger vehicles and motorcycles are no match for the commercial trucks. Instead, those riding in small cars, trucks, SUVs, or cycles are left with severe and lasting injuries. Those damages often include things such as…

• Deep Lacerations, Puncture Wounds, And Burns
• Fractures And Broken Bones That Can Lead To Amputations
• Internal Organ Damage And Bleeding
• Traumatic Brain Injuries
• Partial Or Full Paralysis

Death Can Become Part Of The Equation As Well

A report by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states that 4,889 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes across America in 2017. That amount was a 9-percent increase from 2016. In other words, family members can lose their loved ones in the events. So, commercial truck accidents should never be taken lightly as they can have drastic consequences.

Victims And Their Families May Be Entitled To Fair Compensation

If it can be proven that your injuries were a direct result of a commercial truck driver's negligence or recklessness, it may be possible for you to get restitution for those damages. Spouses, children, and other family members might be able to receive compensation when a wrongful death occurs too. Of course, big organizations tend to have legal teams on retainer though, and they stop at nothing to prevent their client from having to pay out a substantial sum. They even go as far as attempting to pass the blame onto the victim.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
