Tampa Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer

The I-75, the I-4, and the I-275 are all major highways that run through Tampa, and these interstates are very important to the city’s economy. They are used by residents to get to and from work and other places, and semi-trucks use them to deliver goods to the city. Unfortunately, the presence of trucks means it is very likely that an accident will occur. When a semi-truck accident does occur, it is usually those in the smaller vehicle that suffer the most severe injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured, our Tampa semi-truck accident lawyer can help you claim the full damages you deserve.

How Can a Tampa Semi-Truck Accident Attorney Help with Your Case?

You are not required to work with a lawyer when claiming damages after a semi-truck accident. However, it is highly recommended that you do not file a claim on your own. A Tampa semi-truck accident attorney will take care of many tasks when working on your case, which include:

  • Communicating with the insurance companies on your behalf
  • Gathering all medical records and invoices
  • Gathering evidence that supports your claim that someone else is liable
  • Accurately valuing your claim so you recover the full settlement you deserve
  • Help you find physicians and specialists that can advise on how your injuries will affect your future
  • Taking your case to trial, if necessary

As you recover from your injuries, performing the above tasks yourself is extremely difficult. A lawyer will perform them all properly to build you a solid case so you can obtain the full compensation you deserve for your losses.

A Tampa Semi-Truck Accident Attorney will Determine Liability

One of the aspects that makes truck accidents so difficult is the fact that many parties may be potentially liable. It is not like other accidents, in which one of the drivers at the scene is usually at fault. In many cases, multiple parties are liable after a semi-truck accident. These individuals and entities are as follows:

  • The truck driver: Truck drivers can act negligently on the roads just like motorists of smaller vehicles. They may drive while impaired or distracted, or fail to check their blind spots when merging or changing lanes. Any time a truck driver is careless and causes an accident, victims can hold them liable.
  • The trucking company: Under the legal concept of Respondeat Superior, employers that hire other people to perform tasks, such as carry cargo to a certain destination, can be held liable when those employees act negligently.
  • Repair companies: Companies charged with repairing and maintaining the truck can be held liable if they do not do so properly.
  • Cargo companies: Companies that load cargo onto a truck can be held liable if they do not do this properly and the cargo shifts during transit, causing a crash.
  • Manufacturers: Manufacturers of trucks and truck parts are responsible for ensuring their products are safe. If they are not, they can be held liable.

An attorney will examine the facts of your case to determine who is liable for the crash, and help hold them liable for paying the full damages you are entitled to.

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 attorney's advice to settle your case reflects the quality of the offer or your attorneys 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.
