Experienced Palm Harbor Lawyer Assists People Hurt in Truck Crashes
Dedicated Florida advocate obtains relief from drivers and trucking companies
Florida is known as the Sunshine State, but sharing the road with 80,000-pound tractor-trailers can darken even the brightest days. Approximately 35,000 accidents involving commercial vehicles occur in the state each year. No matter what type of truck is involved, the impact can cause catastrophic injury or even death. At the Law Office of Paul B. Genet, P.A. in Palm Harbor, we have delivered exceptional results to truck accident victims since 1991. We work aggressively to win a favorable judgment or settlement that covers the full extent of the harm you’ve suffered, including medical costs, lost wages, and other problems arising from the crash.
Knowledgeable Florida firm offers guidance to victims of large trucks
Collision cases involving large commercial vehicles add additional challenges to the normal legal issues associated with auto accidents. During a free initial consultation, our firm can examine the evidence in your crash and explain the important factors that apply to truck accident cases, such as:
- Commercial vehicle regulations — We actively seek to hold individuals and companies responsible for not practicing proper road safety. The laws governing truck driving are specific and designed to prevent accidents caused by speeding, driver fatigue, overloaded trucks and distracted driving. Commercial vehicle operators might also be prone to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs such as uppers.
- Multiple defendants — While most passenger cars are driven by their owners, commercial truck drivers operate vehicles owned by businesses, so when accidents occur, truckers are backed by powerful corporate and insurance attorneys whose aim is a quick settlement. We recommend that you do not accept a settlement without consulting a qualified Florida truck accident attorney who knows Florida law. Our firm will vigorously represent your interests and take action against all potentially responsible parties including drivers, fleet owners, maintenance companies and businesses that hired the vehicle.
- Defective truck parts — As powerful and complicated machines, trucks can quickly careen out of control even if one small part fails. We have the background and expert advisers to identify defective products and seek relief from the liable manufacturers.
Whether the truck crash resulted in broken bones, head trauma, some other type of injury or even a fatality, proving negligence requires strong representation by a persuasive injury attorney. Our track record of making a positive difference for personal injury and wrongful death plaintiffs will give you the confidence you need to assert your rights.
