Bonita Springs Trucking Accident Lawyer

Semi-Truck Accident Claims in Bonita Springs, FL

Accidents involving large commercial trucks will frequently cause the victims to suffer catastrophic injuries or even death. The sheer weight and size of an 18-wheeler or semi-truck—as much as 40 times more than a normal passenger vehicle—means that a smaller vehicle does not stand a chance in a collision. These smaller vehicles may be completely destroyed, and the driver and passengers are at risk of suffering devastating injuries. Trucking accidents can involve the following types of trucks:

  • Garbage trucks, dump trucks, and log trucks
  • Construction trucks, such as cement trucks, gravel trucks, wide-load convoys and bulldozers
  • Farming trucks and tractors
  • Tanker trucks, pipe haulers, oilfield trucks and chemical trucks
  • Freight liners, UPS trucks, Fed-Ex trucks and U-Haul trucks and other moving trucks
  • Shuttle buses, vacation buses, Greyhound buses, tour buses or Casino buses
  • Semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, big-rigs and flatbeds

At Pittman Law Firm, P.L., we have extensive experience working with all types of personal injury cases, including trucking accidents. When you have been injured by a negligent truck driver, it is in your best interests to find an attorney who understands motor vehicle laws, and how to aggressively pursue a claim against a large trucking company and their insurance company. We will carefully investigate your case to find the necessary evidence to support your claim, and will fight aggressively to help you secure the financial compensation you deserve.

Trucking accidents commonly result from carelessness and recklessness on behalf of the truck driver or trucking company. The Federal Government has enacted strict regulations for the operation of big trucks, and when violation of such guidelines leads to an accident the victim has a right to demand compensation. Common examples of negligence in trucking accidents include:

  • Fatigue at the wheel
  • Unsecured loads
  • Speeding and aggressive or reckless driving
  • Poor visibility or lack of reflectors
  • Poor maintenance of the truck
  • Pressure from employer to complete routes faster
  • Failure to abide by federal Hours of Service regulations governing how long a driver can stay on the road before taking a break to rest
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
