Trucking Accidents

Trucking, Big Rig, and 18 Wheeler Accidents

Countless tractor-trailers, 18 wheelers, and commercial trucks share the road with other motor vehicles in Tampa every day. All of these vehicles weigh literal tons, carry gigantic loads, and are extremely large. You can imagine, then, what can happen to people who get involved in a collision with one of these vehicles, and what the odds of surviving or escaping uninjured actually are, as most people involved in these kinds of accidents will sustain serious, potentially life-threatening injuries that could be catastrophic or get worse over time, particularly if proper medical treatment is not obtained.
It is also likely that after this kind of accident, the trucking company will attempt to be involved, as the cause of the accident (perhaps negligence) can often be traced back to them. Therefore, to try to cover up their own mistakes and curtail any investigations into their company, they may act quickly and attempt to get the injured party to settle instead of going to court. This also means they can avoid paying out maximum damage costs.

Serious Truck Accident Injuries

Too often, truck accidents are caused by negligent, reckless, or dangerous behaviors like driving while fatigued, or speeding. Sometimes, the truck company is at fault for not inspecting trucks for proper standards of procedure.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, you may be allowed to file a lawsuit to seek monetary damages from the negligent party. Damages can be compensated for bodily damages or injuries, property damages, lost income or earning potential, medical bills, or pain and suffering. Therefore, it is imperative that you consult with a personal injury attorney with a track record of successfully handled trucking accident cases.

Bus Accidents
Every day, more people are choosing to ride the bus or use other public transportation rather than drive around Florida. It’s an easy, convenient way to avoid traffic. Unfortunately, as more people are riding the bus, a corresponding increase is seen in the number of bus accidents and bus accident injuries.
When a driver or pedestrian is hit by a bus, they stand little chance of escaping with only minor injuries, as buses are large and quite heavy (especially when filled with people), so when a bus collides with another vehicle or a pedestrian, the outcome is serious, and often fatal.
After any involvement with a bus accident, no matter how major or minor the injuries sustained are, an attorney should be involved. You may be allowed to file a lawsuit to seek damages from the responsible party, which in these cases is usually the bus driver or bus company. With the right legal representation, you can receive monetary compensation for bodily damages, property damages, medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income or lost earning potential as well.
