Fort Lauderdale Truck Accidents

Fort Lauderdale Truck Accidents LawyerFt. Lauderdale Semi Truck Crash AttorneyTruck Accidents

Every 16 minutes a person is killed or injured in a truck accident. The massive weight of an 18-wheeler, particularly at highway speeds, creates tremendous force in a collision with another vehicle. The devastating impact results in death or incapacitating injury more than 50 percent of the time - usually to those in the passenger vehicle.

While the other driver in car accidents is the primary source of financial compensation, truck accidents can involve more possible sources of legal responsibility for the accident. In addition to driver fault, truck accident cases can turn on a number of factors including inadequate maintenance and vehicle defects for which manufacturers or trucking companies may be liable. The fact that so many parties can share in the blame for a single accident makes truck accident cases very complex and often challenging and expensive to pursue. Our attorneys will work to see that all parties responsible for the tragic accident compensate you for your loss.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Unlicensed driver
  • Speeding
  • Disobeying safety procedure
  • Motor vehicle inspection failure
  • Repair & maintenance failure
  • Failure to yield right of way
  • 18-wheeler crash
  • Driver fatigue
  • Truck rollover
  • Backing up/moving in reverse
  • Vehicle collisions
  • Mechanical or brake failure
  • Tires blow up/tire de-treading
  • Transporting equipment with trailers
  • Overload trucks or trailers
  • Loads that shift weight

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
