Truck Accidents

Miami Truck Accident Lawyerstruck accidents

Trucking companies are under economic pressure to deliver cargo as quickly and inexpensively as possible. To do this, they often cut corners. Truck drivers are known to operate trucks while tired. They often skip mandatory maintenance checks and they speed on the interstate. Unfortunately, these unsafe behaviors put themselves and other motorists at risk. All too often, truck drivers' or truck companies' negligent actions can lead to catastrophic and life-threatening results.

At the South Florida law offices of Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., we aggressively hold truck drivers and truck companies accountable for any negligent actions leading to personal injuries and fatalities. We will apply more than 100 years of combined experience to your advantage. Contact our law firm today to schedule a free initial consultation with a skilled Florida semi-truck crash lawyer.

Determining the Cause of 18-Wheeler Accidents in South Florida

Immediately following a truck accident, we act quickly to conduct an investigation before critical evidence disappears. We send a skilled team to the accident scene to determine potential sources of recovery. We consult accident reconstructionists who measure skid marks, note traffic conditions and interview witnesses.

We also investigate the truck driver's history of prior accidents, as well as the trucking company's employment practices. This information can help us understand if the truck company negligently hired or improperly trained new drivers. Our law firm also evaluates log books, black boxes, maintenance records and fuel tickets. We investigate every angle possible focused on helping us identify liability, such as:

  • Truck driver negligence — Our law firm is committed to holding truck drivers responsible for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, reckless driving, speeding, texting while driving or failing to take appropriate rest breaks in order to make their quotas.
  • Negligence of truck owners and companies - Our law firm has extensive experience proving fault against truck companies when they have failed to properly maintain ... all size trucks including 18-wheelers, allowing untrained or improperly supervised truck drivers to drive on the highway or in compelling unrealistic deadlines to be imposed creating unreasonable pressure that could result in avoidable accidents.
Pursuing Maximum Compensation for Accident Victims

We have advocated for hundreds of personal injury victims. Yet, we never make any unnecessary assumptions. Our law firm consults industry-leading experts to help us understand the damages you have endured. We are committed to developing compelling claims, so the at-fault party's insurance adjuster can see how your life has forever been changed.

Part of our work includes consulting your doctor to identify the type of medical care you will need, such as physical therapy or reconstructive surgery. We are committed to helping you obtain compensation for your current and any long-term medical expenses stemming from the truck accident. We also work with economists and vocational experts to understand how your injuries have threatened your ability to continue working. We will pursue maximum compensation against any liable parties for your:

  • Past and future medical needs
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Past and future pain and suffering

We are also available to help you determine if your insurance policy includes Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. This would allow you to recover additional compensation up to the limits of your policy, regardless of fault.

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.
