🚚 Commercial Truck Accidents
Semi-trucks are one of the road’s most dangerous means of transportation. Weighing as much as 80,000 pounds, these massive pieces of motorized machinery can be over 20 times the weight of your car. Such dangerous vehicles call for extreme precaution, yet too often, trucking companies are more concerned with their bottom line than the safety of those on the road. Overworked, impossible demand and mile-based pay all contribute to the nearly 275,000 large truck collisions that occur every single year in the United States. If you’ve been the victim of such a wreck, you are probably wondering where to turn. Perhaps you’ve been offered an insurance settlement that doesn’t even come close to covering your medical expenses. If so, we can help.

Personal Injury FAQs
Q: Can I seek compensation if I was injured by a driver who was texting?
Yes. Texting behind the wheel is a form of distracted driving, and it has quickly become one of the leading causes of vehicle collisions. If you believe that the driver who hit you was texting at the time of the collision, we can use this to help you seek proper financial compensation.
Q: What other types of driving mistakes can support claims for compensation?
Some additional common forms of driver negligence include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Driving while fatigued (and falling asleep behind the wheel)
- Merging without looking
- Running red lights and stop signs
- Other forms of inattentive and reckless driving
Yes. While driver error is the most common cause of car collisions, there are a variety of other factors that can cause and contribute to dangerous collisions as well. Defective parts, faulty maintenance jobs, improper cargo loading, and numerous other issues can all lead to injuries that entitle victims to just compensation.
Q: What are my options if the driver who hit me was uninsured?
If the driver who hit you does not have insurance (or if their insurance is inadequate to cover your losses), you potentially have a few options available. These include:
- Filing a claim under your personal injury protection (PIP) policy (PIP coverage is a requirement under Florida law);
- Filing an uninsured/underinsured (UIM) claim with your insurer (if you purchased UIM coverage); and,
- Pursuing alternate sources of financial compensation (such as a claim for a mechanical failure).
- Potentially pursuing the employer of the other driver if they were working at the time of the collision.
- Pursuing the owner of the vehicle if different than the driver.
