Winter Park Truck Accident Attorneys
Trucks and tractor trailers are not the cause of most traffic-related injuries and fatalities in Florida, but they are far more likely to result in severe injuries. The weight and size of a tractor trailer present greater dangers of spinal cord injuries, neck and head injuries, and paralysis. These medical conditions can temporarily and permanently change a victim’s ability to work and thrive in his daily life. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a truck or tractor trailer, you may have a right to compensation from the negligent driver of the vehicle or his employer. Look no further than Hornsby Law for an experienced Winter Park truck accident attorney.
In Florida, common carriers like trucking companies are obligated by law to exercise the highest degree of care during operation of their equipment. As a result, trucking companies have a duty to the general public to ensure that their equipment is properly maintained and to select and supervise their truck drivers carefully. When a Winter Park truck accident occurs, many details become important to the success of a victim’s case, including:
- Whether the careless driver of the truck or tractor trailer was on the job when the accident happened;
- If the truck driver lives in Florida or another state; and
- Whether the driver’s employer is based in Florida or another state.
In addition, the driver’s insurance company is more likely to award an innocent victim less money if the driver is not represented by legal counsel who has his/her best interests in mind.
