    Truck Accidents in the Tampa Bay Area

    Truck accident lawyer Susan Lawson understands that truck accidents are different from normal automobile crashes. Accidents involving 18 wheelers, cement trucks, semi-trucks, dump trucks, tractor trailers, or delivery trucks and vans can do considerable more damage to a smaller vehicle or person. Truck drivers have a duty to take extra safety precautions that drivers would not normally need to take.

    There are an estimated 4 million trucks at any given time on America’s roadways. Considering Florida’s large economy, it’s no surprise that we see an increasing number of those trucks in the Tampa Bay area. This adds more risk to drivers on Florida’s roadways. In 2012, there were over 500 people killed in the United States by trucks weighing around 10,000 pounds. In addition, there were over 10,000 fatalities involving smaller trucks and utility vans.

    Do I Have a Truck Accident Case?

    If you have been in a trucking accident, there are a few things to consider. First, dealing with truck accidents is much more difficult than your typical personal injury case. Victims of truck accidents will need to deal with many responsible parties, including:

    1. The truck driver
    2. The truck leasing company
    3. The trucks insurance company
    4. The owner of the truck
    5. Your insurance company

    This is not an all-inclusive list, just an idea off all the different parties Tampa truck accident victims have to deal with. The trucking and insurance companies will have some of the best investigators, adjusters, and lawyers at their disposal.

    That is why Tampa truck accident lawyer Susan Lawson will employ her own team of truck accident investigators to conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident. In addition, she will determine if the truck driver obeyed all regulations pertaining to the operation of large trucks.

    Some of the questions she’ll ask during her investigation are:

    1. Was the truck driver acting negligently?
    2. Did the trucking company do all they could to prevent the accident? (ensuring it is always up to code etc.)
    3. Have there been any faulty repairs or a history of faulty repairs made to the truck
    4. Was the truck overloaded?
    5. Were drugs or alcohol a factor in the truck accident?

    A trucking accident is a very serious and time consuming process and should only be handled by a skilled personal injury attorney. Susan Lawson will work tirelessly to win the highest compensation possible for your injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
