Distasio Law Firm Knows How to Support Truck Accident Victims
A Bradenton truck accident lawyer from Distasio Law Firm can help truck accident victims manage their insurance claims or other actions in their legal cases. If we believe your accident supports legal action, we can represent you and pursue a payout on your behalf while you undergo treatment and heal from your injuries.
Distasio Law Firm provides client-focused services, ensuring you always get the answers and information you need throughout the process. We can gather evidence and build a case to hold the liable party responsible and pursue compensation for your damages.
One of the most complicated parts of a truck accident case is identifying the liable party. Florida supports the legal doctrine of respondeat superior, also known as vicarious liability. This doctrine may allow us to pursue a case against the truck driver’s employer when the employee’s negligent actions cause an accident during work activities.
Depending on the specifics of your accident, a third party could also have liability. This may include:
- A mechanic whose negligence caused or contributed to the accident by allowing a mechanical failure to occur in the truck
- A truck component manufacturer if their defective product caused the accident
- A municipality, if they left hazardous conditions on the road that created the accident

Commercial Trucking Accidents Often Cause Serious Injuries
Truck accidents in Bradenton may occur for many reasons. These may include:
- Rear-end accidents
- Blindspot accidents or improper lane changes
- Speeding accidents
- Careless or reckless driving accidents
- Override and underride accidents
- Drowsy, distracted, or drunk driving accidents
- Failure to yield accidents
- Mechanical failures, or parts or tire failure
The severity of the accident and the injuries suffered also vary widely but are often serious because of the size of commercial vehicles when compared to most passenger cars. Injuries and the necessary medical care to treat them could cost thousands of dollars, in addition to all the related expenses and losses. This can especially true for catastrophic and permanent injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Amputations and loss-of-use injuries
