An accident involving a truck or other commercial vehicle can have a devastating effect on your physical and financial well-being. Romero Law Firm., we understand what you are going through, and we work hard to protect injured across the state of Florida. When a severe injury causes you to miss work, damages your property, and causes stress and strain on your life, our attorneys will be there to help you pick up the pieces and rebuild your life.
Sharing the road with large commercial trucks, such as 18-wheelers, is an inevitability for almost all drivers. Unfortunately, because of the sheer size and weight of these vehicles, even seemingly minor collisions can result in devastating injuries, property damage, and in the most severe instances, death. Even with all of the modern safety equipment that passenger cars contain, the size difference between a passenger vehicle and a commercial truck means that, in the event of an accident, motorists can suffer a range of losses that could affect them for the rest of their life.
In the state of Florida, there are as many as 500 truck accidents every month, resulting in hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries. If you were injured in such an accident because of the wrongdoing of a truck driver or trucking company, the truck accident lawyers at Romero law firm, believe that you should not be the one to pay for the resulting costs of this accident. Our experienced team of attorneys fully understand both Florida trucking laws as well as national regulations articulated in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. As such, we are prepared to provide you with the experienced legal representation you need on your side if you’ve been injured because of a negligent or reckless trucker or trucking company.
If you are injured in an accident with a large commercial vehicle, the path to justice may be a little more complicated than a typical car accident case. In the event of a truck accident, the trucking company’s representatives, legal team, and the insurance companies involved may put undue pressure on you to settle for less than what you deserve or may fight against your rightful claim.
You need to hire an attorney who has fought and won cases against the large companies that you are about to face, and you need someone who is not afraid to stand up and fight for you. It is imperative that you hire a firm that understands how the trucking companies and their insurance representatives work, and who knows what tactics they will try to use to prevent paying you what you are owed. An experienced and skilled lawyer will work hard to build the most persuasive case on your behalf and secure you the compensation you are due.
