Tampa Truck Accident Attorney
Fighting for Victims Harmed in 18-Wheeler Accidents
Accidents involving commercial trucks are some of the most devastating
on our roads. As vehicles that can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, 18-wheelers
and other commercial carriers are more susceptible to being involved in
collisions. When trucking companies or truck drivers are negligent or
careless in maintaining or operating their vehicles, the risks for accidents
and serious injuries only increases.
Fortunately for victims injured in trucking accidents, the civil justice
system provides pathways to holding negligent parties accountable for
their actions and recovering financial compensation for damages that include
pain and suffering, medical experience, lost income, and more. While these
pathways are in place, they can be difficult to navigate – especially
when trucking and insurance companies channel their resources into minimizing

Trucking: A Regulated Industry
The commercial trucking industry is tightly regulated to ensure public
safety. When trucking companies or drivers violate laws or regulations,
they substantially increase risks for accidents and injuries. Violations
can also be highlighted to hold negligent companies and drivers accountable
for victims’ losses. Common violations our Tampa truck accident
attorney team looks for during these cases include:
- Exceeding weight and cargo restrictions or improperly loading cargo.
- Negligent maintenance and upkeep of vehicles.
- Improper inspection of vehicles, cargo, or driver conduct.
- Hours-of-Service violations involving overworked or tired drivers.
- Drug or alcohol use by drivers.
In addition to these violations, driver negligence is a common cause of
truck accidents. Whatever the underlying cause may be, our Tampa
personal injury lawyers work toward fully investigating collisions, determining fault
and liability, and fighting for the compensation our clients deserve.
