Truck Accident Lawyers in Miramar, FL

Qualified Truck Accident Lawyers Passionate About Maximizing Compensation in Truck Accident Lawsuits

Truck accidents are inherently more complicated than cases where an accident involves only ordinary passenger vehicles. This is the case both because the resulting injuries suffered by truck accident victims tend to be much more serious than in other cases, and because a complicated set of state and federal safety regulations apply to trucking companies and truck drivers who operate in the Miramar, Florida area. The size and weight of a large commercial truck, tractor-trailer or semi can turn an ordinary car accident into a catastrophic tragedy. The fact that these commercial trucks are almost always owned by a large trucking company only adds another hurdle into the mix, as these corporations have seemingly endless resources to put toward their efforts to minimize fault following a truck accident.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we are passionate about protecting truck accident victims’ rights when they are injured in our Miramar community. We counter the resources of insurance adjusters and defense attorneys with our own significant resources and have found that we can successfully tip the scales in our favor through our dedication, legal expertise and willingness to work tirelessly for our clients. If you or a loved one have sustained injuries in a truck accident in Miramar or elsewhere in South Florida, you need a trusted lawyer by your side to fight for your future. We have already successfully recovered over $100 million in compensation for our clients, so call us today to see how we can help in your case.

Truck accidents are unfortunately often caused by truck drivers who are either distracted or extremely tired. Fatigued driving among truck drivers is a significant problem in our area because of the pressure trucking companies place on these drivers to meet unreasonable delivery deadlines—sometimes even in violation of state or federal trucking safety regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions About Truck Accidents in Miramar, Florida

FAQ: What might the trucking company do to reduce their liability for damages in my truck accident case?

Trucking companies may raise any number of defenses to reduce their financial exposure following a truck accident, including arguing that comparative fault rules should apply (in other words, that you were also partially at fault for causing the truck accident), that your truck accident injuries were not actually caused by the accident (that they were pre-existing conditions), or that you failed to follow your physician’s treatment plan or seek medical care quickly (i.e., a failure to mitigate damages). The truck company might also argue that a third-party’s actions actually caused the accident, or that the accident was caused by unavoidable dangerous road conditions. We have seen all of these defense strategies and more, and are fully equipped to argue against their impact in your case.

FAQ: Does it take a long time to recover compensation after a truck accident?

The answer to this question depends upon the complexity of the accident itself. It can take a significant amount of time to investigate and obtain all necessary evidence to formulate a strong case for compensation—and we do want to make the strongest possible case so that you can obtain full compensation for your injuries. The time frame will also depend upon the willingness of the trucking company to accept fault, and whether the evidence we uncover is clear-cut or more nuanced.
