Complex Causation Issues And Severe Injuries
At Brannon & Brannon, we take on the complexities of truck accident claims for those injured due to the negligence of commercial drivers and trucking company. Whether you reside in the Sunshine State and commute to work daily or are an out-of-state resident traveling here on a vacation, a collision with an 18-wheeler can cause serious, life-threatening injuries.
When Truck Drivers Fall Short Of Their Responsibilities And Violate Federal Law
Various factors can play a role in a truck accident. Those include:
- Drivers failing to take necessary breaks and get proper rest (violations of hours of service)
- Impaired operation due to drug/alcohol abuse
- Improper loading of the truck
- Improper trailer attachment
- Rollovers caused by speeding and inexperience
- Poor record of inspections, maintenance and repairs
More than in most other car accidents, the damage done in semi accidents is usually catastrophic to the vehicles and life-threatening to drivers and passengers. In the aftermath of the crash, important decisions must be made regarding your medical needs and potential legal matters.
Building Strong, Fact-Based Cases To Maximize Compensation
Insurance companies do not waste time in contacting those injured drivers and passengers involved in an 18-wheeler accident. Their objective is to offer a quick settlement and dispose of your case. However, those offers are usually pennies on the dollar and do not reflect the immediate and long-term medical needs. Never accept an offer without speaking to an attorney.
From the moment we take on your case, we provide personalized representation and customize strategies to maximize the compensation you are entitled to receive. We work with the trucking companies and their insurers to secure a settlement that is in the best interests of our clients.
