Truck Accidents

Truck accident victims deserve proper and just compensation if the truck driver negligently caused serious injuries. At the law firm of Thomas J. Ueberschaer, P.A., we represent injured truck accident victims and their families in Florida. We have experience handling complex cases with catastrophic injuries and helping injured clients secure the compensation they deserve.

From our office in Pensacola, we represent clients in truck accident injury and wrongful death cases throughout Florida.

Building Your Truck Accident Case

It is important to speak to a knowledgeable Pensacola truck accident attorney soon after your truck or commercial vehicle accident. Important evidence can be lost if you don’t act quickly to collect witness statements, on-scene evidence and black box data. Our attorneys will get to work immediately to recover critical information related to your crash.

We can hire accident reconstruction specialists to determine who was at fault in the accident. Our Pensacola truck and auto accident attorneys have numerous resources available to mount the strongest case possible.

Investigating Truck Driver Negligence

Our attorneys are also familiar with federal trucking regulations that are commonly violated by drivers on Florida roadways. These include:

  • Shifting load
  • Logbook violations
  • Improper maintenance
  • Faulty brakes or tires
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

If these violations were the cause of your semitruck wreck injury, we will seek justice for you. The mere existence of these violations can bolster your case and help us obtain a fair settlement for your injuries, bills and lost wages.

We Represent Victims Not Insurance Companies

We never represent insurance companies. Some firms work with insurance companies, but our practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of injured victims in Florida. With our nearly 30 years of combined experience, we have handled countless accident cases with victories worth tens of millions of dollars in settlement awards.

While compensation after a trucking accident injury may not get you back to the place that you were in your life before the accident, it will allow you to focus on your recovery. We will handle all discussions with the insurance companies and file a claim against the responsible parties on your behalf.

Were You Injured on the Job?

If you were injured in a truck accident while working, we can help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits through your employer’s workers’ comp insurance. As skilled personal injury lawyers, we can work to pursue additional compensation through a third-party liability claim if you were injured by someone other than your employer.

Did You Lose a Loved One in a Truck Accident?

If you lost a loved one in a fatal accident, we understand that no amount of money can make up for your loss. However, we will work to hold the responsible parties accountable for your loss in a wrongful death claim.
