Another type of motor vehicle accident which always involves very severe injuries or death is an accident involving 18-wheeler semi tractor-trailer trucks. Trucking accidents tend to be more serious because the sheer size and weight of the semi overpowers the smaller vehicle, resulting in more grievous injuries. Another aggravating factor is that these accidents generally occur on Florida highways, where higher speeds can contribute to the severity of the injuries.
As with other accidents, you, as the victim of a trucking accident, deserve compensation for your injuries. These damages can include pain and suffering, unpaid medical expenses, lost wages, any costs of rehabilitation and retraining for a new career, loss of enjoyment of life, and modifications that need to be made to your home. But you need an experienced attorney to help you get all the damages that you deserve.

And our reputation for aggressive trial preparation and giving everything for our clients means that the opposing side is likely to offer a generous settlement to avoid a trial.
