Florida Truck Accident Lawyers Representing Injury Victims in Westshore

Nobody who lives in Westshore or visits the area to enjoy the nearby beaches or retail establishments and restaurants expects to get seriously injured in a truck accident. However, it is important to know that truck crashes can happen anywhere. Semi-trucks deliver goods to stores and restaurants in the Westshore area, and they are involved much too often in collisions on Kennedy Blvd. and even on local roads. Since 18-wheelers are so much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, occupants of cars and SUVs frequently suffer devastating injuries in truck crashes.

If you or someone you love got hurt in a trucking collision, you should speak with a Westshore truck accident lawyer today.

Getting the Facts About Westshore Trucking Collisions

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) provides facts and figures that help to demonstrate the seriousness of large truck collisions:

  • Nearly 4,900 people died in truck crashes in 2017, and more than 4,100 died in trucking collisions in 2018;
  • Majority of people killed in truck accidents are smaller vehicle occupants;
  • More than 100,000 injury accidents involving large trucks happen every year; and
  • Large trucks are involved in more than 350,000 collisions involving property damage on an annual basis.

Truck accidents have many different causes, and a variety of parties may be liable in a truck crash case. Given that each trucking collision has its own particular facts, you should always have an experienced lawyer assess the merits of your case and help you to understand your options for taking your case forward.

Contact a Truck Accident Lawyer in Westshore

If a negligent truck driver or a trucking company is responsible for your serious injuries, it is extremely important to begin working with one of our Westshore truck accident lawyers on your claim. When insurance coverage is insufficient to compensate you for your losses, you could be eligible to file a truck accident lawsuit. While many individual motorists in car accident cases do not often have substantial assets from which they can pay a large damages award in a car accident lawsuit, the same is not true of truck collisions. In many truck accident cases, truck owners or trucking companies can be held liable, and they tend to have deep pockets from which to provide injury victims with compensation.
