Proven Results for the Victims of Truck Accidents in Panama City

Trucking accidents are among the most dangerous and deadly of all traffic collisions. Because of their size and weight, massive trucks can cause major damage to smaller passenger vehicles and their occupants. When a large truck collides with a car, it is rarely the trucker who sustains injuries. The greatest percentage of injuries, deaths, and property damage occur to those in the passenger car.

Being involved in a car accident with any type of large truck can be a devastating and traumatic experience. At such a crucial time, you need a seasoned attorney to advocate on your behalf. You will need to file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for your losses. Medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage, and loss of income or wages are among the damages to which you may be entitled. At Anderson & Hart, P.A., we have been representing injury victims in Tallahassee and Panama City for decades. Our proven track record speaks for itself. We have always believed in and worked on the principle that justice matters.

How is Truck Accident Liability Determined?

When it comes to trucking accidents, there can be a variety of factors that lead to the accident. Whether the driver was behaving negligently by driving while intoxicated or if the trucking company failed to properly load and secure the cargo. Either of these types of negligence have the potential to lead to a serious trucking accident. When establishing liability (who should be held accountable for the accident) it's important to understand what caused the accident in the first place. Some different parties that may be held liable in the event of a truck accident include:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The cargo supplier or manufacturer
  • The truck owner or manufacturer

Securing the help of a professional truck accident lawyer in Florida can help ensure that blame is placed on the party that was truly responsible for the accident.
