Proving liability in a Florida commercial truck accident

If you or a loved one has been injured in a commercial truck accident, you may believe the law is in your favor, but unfortunately, a semi-truck’s involvement in a crash is not, by itself, evidence that the truck caused the crash. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Defective equipment, e.g., brakes
  • Driver error
  • Driver fatigue
  • Faulty truck maintenance
  • Passenger car driver error
  • Road conditions
  • Unbalanced or unsecured loads

Sorting through all the possible liability issues is a complex task. Responsible parties can include the truck driver, the trucking company, the loading company, the maintenance company, government entities charged with building and maintaining highways, and the drivers of other vehicles. As with motorcycle and car accidents, The Matassini Law Firm works closely with experts in accident reconstruction to ascertain who or what caused your accident, and to build the case that will hold the proper parties accountable.

The role of trucking regulations in accident cases

Because 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks are capable of tremendous destructive force, federal and state laws require trucking companies to carry high levels of insurance and to comply with numerous safety regulations. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation, sets rules for the number of continuous hours a driver may operate a tractor trailer and how often the company must perform maintenance. We subpoena and scrutinize all service logs to uncover violations that may have caused or contributed to your accident.

The experience you need in your pursuit of justice

The greatest distinguishing feature among attorneys is their level of experience. Our firm has more than 60 years of legal experience, much of it spent in the courtroom at trial.

The resources to provide quality representation for the length of your case

Whether your case involves medical malpractice, an auto accident or a wrongful death, your attorney must be prepared to take the case all the way through trial to verdict. Many personal injury attorneys advance the cost of litigation, so they can only last so long before financial pressures start to mount. As a client, you have to wonder whether an attorneyÕs advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneyÕs need to get paid. Fortunately, The Matassini Law Firm has the resources to pursue civil verdicts and settlements that reflect the actual value of your case.
