Lawyers For Florida Truck Accident Victims
Collisions involving semi trucks, tractor-trailers, construction equipment and other heavy commercial trucks and vans are not your typical accident. The sheer size and weight of the vehicles often mean the injuries to car or motorcycle occupants are more serious and often fatal. In addition, the commercial trucking industry in the United States is highly regulated. Trucking companies are required to maintain their cabs and trailers in excellent operating order, and truck drivers operate under many restrictions regarding their health, medical condition and hours behind the wheel.

Saunders Law Group in Bartow, Florida, is a double board-certified law firm with decades of experience aggressively representing clients injured in road accidents involving large trucks and commercial vehicles.
Trucking companies often self-insure themselves in addition to their commercial vehicle insurance coverage. Sometimes these companies take special steps to change or hide evidence that could lead to proof of liability and high payments to injured parties. Insurance companies are also quick to offer low-ball settlements, hoping the injured party will agree to an amount that is a fraction of what the full and fair compensation should be.
The Steps We Will Take To Protect Your Rights After A Trucking Accident
Collect evidence: Typically after an 18-wheeler accident, the first move a truck accident lawyer will make is to review the testimony of witnesses and begin collecting evidence. Our attorneys can reconstruct what happened based on the evidence and begin solidifying your case. Investigators and medical experts can piece together a strong case against a truck driver or trucking company.
Gather support of damages: When you are injured in a truck wreck, you may be entitled to past and future medical expenses, as well as past and future lost wages. Our truck accident attorneys know how and where to gather this information so that we can place a value on your economic losses.
Contact witnesses: The statements of witnesses are important to both sides. After gathering evidence, we can contact witnesses and gather their statements regarding the accident. Collecting witness statements must be done immediately since witnesses may forget important facts if too much time passes.
Make a claim: Once all the evidence is gathered and we have thoroughly reviewed the material, our attorneys can put together a comprehensive demand package to send to the trucking defendants and their insurance companies.
Fight for you in court if necessary: If the other side refuses to pay what you are owed, we will be ready to litigate your case in court. Other attorneys and the courts throughout Central Florida know that Saunders Law Group is a tough opponent, and we have a successful record of securing the maximum available compensation for our clients.
