Truck accident attorneys see the devastating impacts of truck crashes all the time. Many people call the law offices of Flaxman Law Group, seeking to speak with a truck accident attorney. These people have often suffered serious injury and don't know where to turn to pay for medical bills.
In 2020 alone, across the country 107,000 truck accidents led to injuries and 4,842 of these collisions involved fatalities. In communities like Homestead, Hollywood, and other South Florida communities, people's lives are permanently changed by truck accidents.
Since trucks are many times the size of passenger cars, when they're involved in collisions they can cause devastating outcomes. Trucking crashes can lead to crushing injuries, fatalities, chain reaction accidents, rollovers, and more. When trucks are carrying hazardous cargo, they can cause chemical exposure, pollution, fires and explosions, and devastating that can affect an entire community.
While we call them trucking accidents, in many cases these crashes are preventable. While there are many state and federal rules to help drivers of heavy trucks, such as big rigs, tankers, and tractor trailers stay safe on the roads, in some cases truck carriers and drivers take big risks – and it's often other users of the road who end up paying a big price. If you have been injured by a truck driver's or company's negligence, you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries. By pursuing a legal claim, if you qualify, you can seek compensation so you don't have to pay for medical bills, lost wages, car damages, and other costs out of pocket.Have You Been Injured in a Trucking Accident in South Florida?
My name is Charles Flaxman and I founded Flaxman Law Group after seeing for myself the support and help injury victims need. Some of the most devastating injuries I have seen have been from commercial trucking accidents.
For example, I once represented a woman who was traveling by car when a trailer truck moved over into her lane and pushed into the median. The woman's car flipped over. The accident was not her fault; we found witnesses to prove that. The truck in fact did change lanes. We also found out that the truck driver hadn't slept the required number of hours, so we were able to prove her case and get her compensated properly.
There are many things to know in a truck accident: Did the truck driver sleep properly the night before? Did he or she drink alcohol the night before? Were his or her tires properly inflated? Was the truck properly maintained? There are many things that truck drivers must do and many times do not do, so it's important that you contact me so I can advise you of your rights.
