Fort Myers Trucking Accident Attorneys
Committed to Standing Up for Victims of Negligence
Because of their size, inability to make quick stops, heavy (and sometimes hazardous) loads, and other factors, trucks are an imposing force on the road, and trucking accidents can be even more dangerous and fatal than other vehicular accidents. These accidents can be caused by negligence or recklessness, such as:
- Overloading a truck’s cargo (and exceeding the federal limits)
- Installing defective truck parts
- Failing to properly maintain or inspect a truck’s mechanics
- Failing to maintain proper roadway conditions
- Driving under the influence
- Driving drowsy (and surpassing the limits placed on how long drivers can be on the road within a 24-hour period)

Why You Need an Attorney’s Help with Truck Accident Claims
Many clients wonder whether hiring a truck accident lawyer is worth it, and the answer is, yes, retaining a reliable truck accident attorney can help more than hurt your case. Because of their understanding of the law, experience handling this type of litigation,
Your attorney has your best interest in mind, and they represent you. Insurance company representatives may try to take advantage of your lack of experience and knowledge by offering you a lowball settlement. An attorney will recognize these
- They understand the tactic insurance company representatives and the opposition may use.
- You can save time and money,
- They can help you establish fault, which can be complex. We will discuss this in detail further below.
Trucking accident liability can be difficult to ascertain and prove because of the multiple parties that may be held liable. Liability for a truck accident can be totally or partly the fault of the driver; the following parties may also be partly or totally liable:
- Trucking companies or owners
- Freight loaders
- Truck maintenance or repair companies
- Truck parts manufacturer
- Other drivers
An attorney can also help you investigate the truck accident with causation and evidence collection in mind. To establish liability, they can also speak with witnesses and accident reconstructionists, and in some cases, especially those where the truck driver acted negligently, an attorney can review the police report and truck driver’s qualification file. Legally, all drivers should have this file, and it contains their driver’s history, medical records, and more.
