Truck accidents are different from auto accidents in two main ways. First, because of the size and speed usually involved in a commercial truck or tractor trailer crash, the driver or passengers of the car are likely to suffer devastating injuries, if not death. Secondly, special liability concerns apply that are best handled by an experienced truck accident lawyer.
Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, based in Miami, has represented truck accident victims throughout Florida, as well as families of those killed in fatal 18-wheeler accidents. Our Florida truck accident lawyers know the federal laws pertaining to the trucking industry, and we have obtained substantial settlements and verdicts in car-tractor trailer collisions.
Our experience helps us provide guidance and counsel, answering questions that the injured person may not have even thought to ask yet.Our Florida Truck Accident Lawyers Have Experience Proving Liability in 18-Wheeler Accidents
Our Florida truck accident lawyers are adept at getting to the root cause of semi truck crashes. We investigate negligence by the driver and/or the trucking company, employing a network of experts:
- Accident reconstruction specialists
- Human factors experts who can testify about the truck driver's actions, what a reasonable person would perceive and how much reaction time the victim(s) had
- Expert truck mechanics to determine the condition of brakes, tires, lights, the trailer and other equipment at the time of the crash
Our Florida truck accident lawyers examine the driver's history and qualifications, the company's hiring and training practices, driver's logs and any tracking devices such as GPS locators or "black box" event data recorders.Financial Compensation for Victims of 18-Wheeler Accidents
Victims who survive a truck accident may have major injuries requiring years of recovery or a lifetime of care. In consultation with medical experts, we help families develop a life care plan that covers future surgery, physical therapy, home modifications and other long-term needs, including at-home nursing help and other aides. Victims can also collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and future earning potential, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment.
