Fort Myers Truck Liability Attorney
When a collision involving a large truck occurs and a party in a smaller vehicle suffers an injury, that party’s lawyer is often quick to file a suit against the trucking company. As a result, the trucking company and its insurer are made to build a defense, and often face an uphill battle in doing so – juries are often unsympathetic to trucking companies named in civil actions.
At the firm of HD Law Partners, our Fort Myers truck liability attorneys have an intimate knowledge of trucking accident claims and various trucking industry-related regulations, and will start building a defense immediately. To protect your trucking company from unfair claims or settlements, please call our law office to get started today.
We Analyze All Elements of a Case to Build a Strong Defense
Our attorneys are skilled investigators with the knowledge and resources to fully build your defense. We consider all facts of the case, including other potentially-liable parties and trucking-related regulations, and consider all evidence, including ECM (electronic control module) data, driver logs, weight tickets, electronic logs, safety compliance records, and more. We are well-versed in Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations and compliance. As part of our analysis and investigative process, we ask tough questions that are designed to protect you from liability, including:
- How did the accident occur?
- Did the plaintiff contribute to the accident and their injuries in any way?
- If the accident was caused by the truck driver, should the trucking company be held vicariously liable? Was the truck driver an employee, or a contractor? Was their behavior within the scope of employment?
- Was proper maintenance performed on the truck?
- Was the accident caused by a truck defect?
- Were all safety regulations and rules adhered to?
Our lawyers have experience handling myriad types of truck accident claims, including claims involving jackknife accidents, rollovers, blind spot collisions, rear-end accidents, cargo-related crashes, underride accidents, override crashes, tire blowouts, and more.
Protecting Your Best Interests
Based on the facts of the case and the viable options available, our lawyers will engage in negotiations on your behalf, prioritizing reaching a settlement through mediation and avoiding litigation. If a reasonable settlement cannot be reached–or if settling the case is not advised–our lawyers will stand ready to take your case to court and obtain a jury verdict. We have years’ worth of litigation experience – you can count on our team in and out of a courtroom.
