Bradenton Truck Accident Attorney
Because of the size and weight of commercial trucks, big-rig accidents are particularly destructive, with most resulting in life-altering or even life-ending injuries. Survivors of truck accidents usually need extensive and costly medical care, surgeries, and physical rehabilitation. On top of that, most accident victims cannot work for months or even years after the accident, while some may never be able to return to their jobs again. In short, the cost of a truck accident injury goes beyond the medical—the expenses are all-consuming, which is why the liable party should be held responsible.
At HD Law Partners, our Bradenton truck accident attorneys are familiar with the unique laws that regulate the trucking industry. We also understand how trucking insurance companies operate and are prepared to use our knowledge to make the fight to recovery as least burdensome on accident victims as possible. If you or a loved one was involved in a trucking accident that was the fault of the truck driver, retain the help of an experienced and compassionate Bradenton personal injury lawyer who knows what steps to take to best help you.
An Experienced Lawyer Understands How to Address Issues Unique to Truck Accident Cases
Trucking accidents are unique in that truckers are governed by three sets of rules: those set forth by the state, those set forth by the federal government, and those set forth by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). It is this final set of rules—those set forth by the FMCSA—that warrant the most attention in truck accident liability cases.
At HD Law Partners, we are well versed in trucking laws and regulations and have a thorough understanding of everything from hours of service to driver qualifications, and from vehicle maintenance to driver logs. When a truck accident victim comes to us for legal representation, and once we accept his or her case, we begin by reviewing all available logs, ECM/EDR black box data, weight tickets, and other available data to determine the actual cause of the incident and whether or not driver compliance (or lack thereof) had anything to do with it.
Once we have our findings, we will confidently enter the negotiations and mediation stages of the personal injury process and use our data to work toward a reasonable settlement. If, for whatever reason, a settlement cannot be reached, our lawyers will stand by your side in court and until a jury verdict is reached.
