Ocala Trucking Accident Attorneys

Most of us share the highway with 18-wheelers every day. The fact that we have done that without being injured can make the risk posed by semis seem remote or unlikely. But, the reality is that 18-wheelers are massive vehicles that can weigh 80,000 pounds. The drivers are often overworked. Fatigue and the pressure to maintain an unrealistic schedule can cause a driver to make mistakes that can injure and kill people.

Trucking accidents differ from most car accidents in a number of ways:

  • Catastrophic injuries — Because of the size and weight of 18-wheelers, the injuries that people suffer in these accidents are often catastrophic. Traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury are among the types of devastating injuries people suffer in accidents with tractor-trailers.
  • Complex investigations — Understanding what happened and why can be a complex question that requires an experienced attorney to conduct. Evidence such as logbooks and black boxes will need to be reviewed. Accident reconstruction professionals can offer invaluable insight as to how the accident happened. Our attorneys have decades of experience that help us conduct thorough investigations.
  • Opposition from insurance companies — As the injuries suffered in trucking accidents are often so severe, the compensation in question can be substantial. Because of this, insurance companies often deploy every resource they have available to fight these cases. The best hope for succeeding against such strong defense is to work with a firm that has the experience and resources to stand up to the insurance companies.
