Tampa Truck Liability Attorney
In any collision between a motor vehicle and a tractor-trailer or heavy other commercial vehicle, the trucking company is often quickly targeted by the lawyer representing the driver of the passenger vehicle. Trucking companies and their carriers face an uphill battle from unsympathetic juries ready to place the blame on the big rig and the corporate defendant. Yet the fact is that truck safety has actually increased; injury accidents and fatal accidents involving semi-trucks have decreased dramatically over the years. HD Law Partners begins defense early, coordinating accident investigation with defense and retaining the necessary experts to determine what actually happened, and preparing a strong case that delivers those facts in a compelling, persuasive manner.
