Tampa Trucking Accident Attorneys
Although they represent a smaller percentage of the vehicles on the road, trucks cause a disproportionate number of traffic accidents. It is estimated that 80,000 trucking accidents occur in the United States every year, with 4,000 fatalities. Driver fatigue and speeding account for many trucking accidents.
Trucking companies often cut corners when it comes to federal safety laws, resulting in collisions that can have disastrous—or fatal—consequences for the automobile driver or passengers.
If you have been injured in an accident with an 18 wheeler, semi, or tractor-trailer in Tampa, you have the legal right to claim damages if the accident was the result of negligence or reckless conduct. Your chances of getting fair compensation are much greater if you have a reputable truck accident lawyer who understands the complexity of trucking regulations and knows how to deal with insurance companies attempting to minimize the liability of their clients.

In this case, several parties would share liability for the accident.
