Truck Accident Lawyers

Making the legal system work for YOU.

Truck Accident Lawyers – Serving Sarasota, Bradenton, Punta Gorda and Tallahassee
Because of their size and weight, commercial trucks are far more likely to cause serious damage than passenger vehicles in an accident. Truck drivers have a legal obligation to abide by federal and state trucking regulations when on duty and to obey the rules of the road. Unfortunately, many truck drivers place other motorists at risk because they want to meet a deadline or accumulate more hours. The results of such negligent and reckless actions can be catastrophic.

Successfully trying a truck accident lawsuit requires an exhaustive understanding of both state and federal laws, the drive and determination to win, and practical litigation experience. Trucking companies and insurance companies have the resources and the wherewithal to vigorously defend their interests against truck accident claims. It can be extremely difficult to reach a fair case resolution unless you have sound legal counsel on your side.

A variety of parties can be held liable in a truck accident, depending on the circumstances and the cause. Our experienced truck accident lawyers can review your case and conduct an independent analysis of the accident evidence to help determine liability. If you have been seriously injured or lost a loved one as a result of a trucking accident, a truck accident lawyer from Lutz, Bobo & Telfair, P.A., can file a lawsuit against the liable parties to help ensure that you are justly compensated for your pain and suffering.

We offer no cost initial consultations for all injury and wrongful death claims. We also take injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency basis. This means we charge no attorney’s fees unless we settle your case or win a favorable verdict in court. We urge you to call or email us today to review your truck accident claim.
