Experienced Legal Help For Victims Of Trucking Accidents
There is a good reason that semi-trucks are strictly regulated by federal law. A fully loaded 18-wheeler weighs up to 40 tons. In a collision, the occupants of the smaller vehicle don’t stand a chance – serious injuries, if not permanent or fatal often result.
The Law Offices of Gonzalez & Associates offers sophisticated representation for victims of truck accidents in Florida. We have the experience and resources to hold trucking companies and their insurers accountable for a deadly accident or life-changing injuries.
If your loved one was in a truck accident, we need to investigate right away. Call 866-626-4257 for a free consultation.
What Caused The Truck Accident?
Founding attorney Neil Gonzalez and his team have handled all types of trucking accidents: tractor-trailers, freight trucks, tankers, commercial delivery vehicles, dump trucks and construction vehicles, garbage trucks and others.
We know the questions to ask and the evidence to obtain to discover what caused or contributed to the crash:
- Driver fatigue from too many hours on the road
- Driver error or distracted driving
- Speeding, tailgating or dangerous lane changes
- Bad brakes, bald tires or another neglected maintenance
- Negligent hiring and training by the trucking firm
- Third parties who caused the trucker to swerve
Trucking companies are highly insured, but they are also well defended. The employer and the insurance company will send investigators to the accident site to gather intel that they can use to deny or downplay their liability. You need savvy legal representation on your side to challenge that narrative, and keep the focus on the negligence of the truck driver and the trucking company.
Compensation For The Long Road To Recovery
We work closely with families to build a strong case for personal injury compensation or wrongful death damages. Trucking accidents cause some of the worst injuries, including brain injury, spinal cord injury, loss of limb, broken bones, severe burns and internal injuries. It is common for victims to be trapped in the wreckage, adding to the pain and trauma. We work to make sure that a settlement covers the needs and losses: hospital bills, future medical care, lost wages and loss of future earning capacity, permanent impairment or disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
We Are With You Every Step Of The Way
A quick settlement will not cover the losses and it may take some time to secure the full compensation you need. We help families cope with the financial hardships and insurance matters while we are pursuing your case against the trucking company. We are here to help with anything that comes up.
