Abrahamson & Uiterwyk May Be Able To Help
If you’ve been involved in a vehicle or pedestrian accident with a truck, you probably have a long road of recovery ahead of you. You may have the right to be compensated if the accident was caused by the negligence of the trucker, the business he was driving for, or the fleet owner.
It can be difficult, however, to weave through the maze of laws and responsibilities while you’re trying to cope with the challenges of everyday life. The law firm of Abrahamson & Uiterwyk may be able to help.
By the Numbers
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, there are about half a million truck accidents per year. Did you know that a tractor-trailer that is fully loaded can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds and still be within the federal transportation safety requirements? Considering that the average passenger car weighs between 4,000 and 6,000 pounds, it’s no wonder an impact with a truck can leave you seriously hurt with long-term injuries.
Do You Need a Tampa Truck Accident Lawyer?
The Florida laws governing truckers and truck accidents are complex. The different insurance coverages and responsibilities can be confusing if you don’t deal with them regularly.
The trucker’s insurance company and defense attorney may not tell you how many laws were broken by their client. They may simply say the trucker isn’t responsible and leave it at that.
An experienced Tampa truck accident lawyer will know the law and be able to fight for you.
Choosing An Attorney
It’s important to choose an injury attorney who is familiar with the laws regarding personal injury and truck driving. You’ll also need one who isn’t timid about facing a large contingent of insurance and legal representatives from multiple parties on the other side of the bench. Look for a Tampa law firm that focuses on personal injury and has access to someone who has the knowledge to reconstruct an accident.
