At The Law Offices of John R. Mathias, P.A., you have access to an experienced personal injury attorney, as well as caring staff. My firm has the experience and professional resources to assess the full impact of the crash on your life. I conduct thorough investigations, and I explore every possible avenue for securing the compensation you need.

I Am Ready To Investigate Your Crash Right Away

It is important to get legal advice soon after any car accident, but especially after a trucking accident that results in injuries. Important evidence may be available at the crash scene for only a limited time. Skid marks, road conditions and vehicle debris can all play a critical role in proving fault in a truck accident.

To determine how your truck accident happened, I am prepared to hire qualified experts to document the crash scene and reconstruct the crash if necessary. My goal is to prove the truck driver, trucking company and/or someone else was responsible for the accident and is, therefore, liable for paying compensation to cover your losses.

Questions Clients Often Ask Me About Truck Accidents

As a truck accident lawyer with decades of experience, I am happy to answer your immediate questions in a free consultation. Below are common questions that my clients have after being injured in a trucking accident.

How are truck accidents different from other motor vehicle accidents?

Truck accidents tend to be more complicated than other types of crashes for a number of reasons:

  • Due to the size, weight and speed of large commercial vehicles, accidents involving large trucks often result in catastrophic injuries that require extensive medical treatment and ongoing care. Trucking accidents also may result in wrongful death.
  • Truck drivers and trucking companies must follow safety rules set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regarding weight limits, inspection requirements and maximum daily hours of driving per trucker. Violations of these rules must be investigated in truck accident cases.
  • Trucking companies and their insurers typically have their own lawyers whose job is to minimize or deny financial compensation to injury victims. It is only fair that you have an experienced truck accident lawyer on your side to protect your interests.

Who is potentially liable for a truck accident in Florida?

Sometimes more than one person or company is responsible for the mistakes of the driver. Sometimes different insurance companies cover different actions or different parts of the truck at various stages of delivery. The name on the truck may not indicate all companies and insurance providers that can compensate you for your injuries and losses. In short, the potentially liable parties may include the trucking company, the truck driver, the party responsible for loading the truck, the truck or trailer manufacturer, or any of these parties’ insurance providers.

Does your law firm take cases for injured truckers as well as people injured in other vehicles?

In some cases, yes. If you were injured while driving an 18-wheeler or any commercial vehicle, you should ask an attorney to review your case. In addition to your potential eligibility for workers’ compensation, you may be able to bring a claim against a third party, such as a government entity in charge of signage or roadway maintenance.
