Semi-Truck Accident Lawyers


As tractor-trailers and semi-trucks transport goods to over 85% of the state’s communities, Florida has come to rely on these large commercial vehicles to stimulate its economy. Unfortunately, at the Shiner Law Group, we understand there are few things more catastrophic to occur on Florida roads than an accident involving one.

A division of the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports approximately 11 fatal accidents involving semi-trucks occur each day in Florida. As these trucks often carry an average weight exceeding 10,000 pounds, the sheer size and force of these vehicles pose significant safety risks to other motorists sharing the road.

Identifying Liability in a Florida Truck Accident

Successful litigation in a truck accident claim sometimes goes beyond proving the driver’s negligence. Product liability, maintenance log tampering, negligent retention or hiring, and improperly secured cargo are other factors that can ultimately contribute to your injuries, which requires expert knowledge of the law and significant resources to investigate.

An experienced Florida truck accident attorney will help you identify the cause of the accident, examine the driver’s employment history, past citations, as well as any past training and certifications.

The Shiner Law Group identifies parties that may be held responsible in a personal injury claim:

  • The truck driver.
  • The driver’s employer.
  • The manufacturer of the truck’s components.
  • The company and employees responsible for loading the cargo.

Common Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents

The causes of negligence in a motor vehicle accident are virtually limitless; however, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), these are the top causes commonly associated with personal injury litigation:

  • Issues with the vehicle’s brake system.
  • Heavy traffic conditions resulting from congestion or a previous accident.
  • Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or other stimulants.
  • Exceeding the posted speed limit.
  • Unfamiliarity with the road or the local traffic safety laws.
  • Unsafe road conditions.
  • Traffic control systems, such as stop signs or crosswalks.
  • Inadequate training or supervision.
  • Fatigue.

Recoverable Damages For Semi-Truck Accident Victims

Accidents involving semi-trucks and other commercial vehicles typically involve one or more parties, which makes legal representation imperative to identifying the appropriate defendants and maximizing your claim’s financial recovery potential.

Victims often suffer from broken bones, trauma to the neck and back, and significant head damage – injuries that require months or even years of medical treatment and rehabilitation. Your personal injury attorney can help you quantify your past and future damages to ensure that you receive fair compensation.
