I Was Involved in an Accident with a Tractor-Trailer in Florida. How Do I Know If I Have a Case?

The best way to determine whether you are entitled to damages based on a collision with a large commercial truck is to contact an experienced truck accident lawyer and provide them with all of the details of the crash, the injuries you sustained, and the problems your injuries have caused. At Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys, anything you share with our experienced litigators during that consultation is always confidential and it is always 100% free.

Why You Need a Lawyer Who Specializes in Truck Accidents

The first thing you should know when looking for an injury lawyer to help you with your truck accident case is that many personal injury law firms are not equipped to handle a truck case.  Even those who claim to take truck wreck cases may not ever have brought one to trial. Truck accident cases are more expensive, more complex than auto accidents, and they are harder to win. You need a lawyer with extensive experience and transportation industry expertise to win you the compensation you’re owed.

Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys has been winning truck accident injury cases longer than many of our peers have been practicing law. Our firm has been in business for more than 60 years, and our truck accident lawyers each have 20-35 years of experience. We have dedicated ourselves to this unique area of the law so that crash victims will have a chance at justice when facing large transportation companies and their aggressive defense teams.

As a result of that time and dedication, our lawyers have become nationally recognized as the industry leaders in truck accident law. Dan Munley  and Marion Munley have both served as Chair of the American Association for Justice Trucking Litigation Group, and they are both board-certified in Truck Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. They frequently travel around the U.S. to educate other attorneys on how to approach these cases as truck accidents become more prevalent.

Our truck accident attorneys will  get to work immediately

The major trucking companies will hire lawyers immediately after a truck accident and have them on the scene the same day, if possible. You should do the same. The experienced trucking law lawyers at Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys know how to preserve all of the important pieces of evidence for you. They know how to secure the scene of an accident and take necessary photographs and witness statements. This is critical because significant pieces of evidence helpful to you can be lost, misplaced or be purposely destroyed by the trucking companies.

Florida Truck Accident Statistics and Information

According to the most recent Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle (FHSMV) Crash Report, 693,561 motor-vehicle operators were involved in a total of 403,626 roadside collisions in the Sunshine State last year. That means that there was an average of 1,106 crashes in Florida every day. These accidents caused 236,157 drivers and passengers to sustain serious injuries, 19,196 to become incapacitated, and 3,135 to die. Many of the serious injuries and deaths were the result of collisions involving large commercial trucks, big rigs, semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, delivery trucks, tractor-trailers, dump trucks, buses, or garbage trucks.

Major Highways in the state of Florida include: I-4, I-10, I-75 and I-95.

Interstate 4: I-4 splits Florida into northern and southern sections. Daytona Beach, Orlando, Lakeland and Tampa lie along the I-4 route. The route also passes through Florida’s Green Swamp, an area notorious for fog. This fog has led to a number of deadly truck accidents and pileups. Many of which included fatalities such as the 2008 pileup near Polk City that included over 70 vehicles and that resulted in 4 deaths and 38 injured.

Interstate 10: I-10 spans the Florida panhandle and connects major northern Florida cities including Jacksonville, Lake City, Pensacola and Tallahassee. It is known for having received substantial storm surge damage during Hurricane Ivan in 2004. In August 2014, 27 people were injured when two eighteen-wheeler tractor trailers collided with a Greyhound bus in Escambia County.

Interstate 75: I-75 serves as the primary route between the Great Lakes southward to Florida. I-75 enters Florida near Lake City  and continues southward to Naples, where it becomes a toll road called “Alligator Alley” and crosses over to Ft. Lauderdale. Because it stretches alongside some of the largest cities in Florida, most crashes on I-75 occur in the areas around Tampa and Miami.

Interstate 95: I-95 begins at the Maine/Canadian border and stretches along the Eastern Seaboard through Delaware. I-95 enters FL just north of Jacksonville and spans along the heavily populated Atlantic coastline of FL through the cities of Daytona Beach, Melbourne, West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. The southern terminus is in Miami. The population density in this region along with the higher number of trucks and other motor vehicles makes I-95 one of the deadliest highways in Florida.

It was such a wonderful feeling knowing that there was always someone in my corner taking care of me. He always came through. Always. I would recommend Dan Munley to anyone! Marie, Personal Injury Client

    [Attorney] Munley and Munley Law have been absolutely awesome to work with. After wasting years with another firm working on my case, Munley Law was able to get me the social security disability that I deserved. You walk in to Munley Law and are greeted with a friendly smile and courtesy. They are highly confidential, well organized and extremely knowledgeable about social security disability – they really know what they are doing. They were with me every step of the way, did all of the leg work, and returned calls promptly. They assured me that if we didn’t win, we would keep fighting, because I deserved this. They were professional and courteous, and I had complete trust in them. I highly recommend Munley Law – they will fight on your behalf. Sandy, Social Security Disability Case
