Clearwater Truck Accident Attorney
Representing Victims Injured in Commercial Trucking Accidents
The dangers posed by large commercial vehicles, including semi-trucks and
18-wheelers, are evident by the size and weight of these vehicles. Each
year, these massive machines, which can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds,
cause severe accidents on roads and highways. Truck accident victims and
their families are often devastated. From tremendous emotional damages
and physical pain to the extensive financial burdens caused by costly
medical bills and lost work wages, damages are routinely severe.
We know what it takes to get truck accident victims the money they deserve.
In fact, we were once able to win a $2.7 million verdict on behalf of
an 18 wheeler accident victim.
Our Experience on Your Side
Our legal team conducts extremely thorough investigations to determine
and establish the liability of truck drivers and trucking companies. In
order to obtain the maximum compensation, we draw from
more than 48 years of collective experience and knowledge of the numerous federal trucking regulations to ensure that
these cases are resolved as favorably as possible.
We Understand. We've Been There.
In 1993, our very own
Attorney Mark Roman was struck by a truck carrying tons of roofing tile
after it ran a red light in Clearwater, Florida. As the result of this experience, Attorney Roman developed an ability
to identify and empathize with the pain and difficulties our injured clients
experienced in the wake of serious motor vehicle and truck accidents.
Convinced that this accident occurred so that he could better understand
the tremendous struggles our clients' encounter, he is now able to provide
a rare level of service and compassionate support to the victims and families we represent. As Attorney Roman is also AV®
Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® and was listed as one of Tampa Bay's
Top Lawyers by
Tampa Bay Magazine, you can be sure that he has also proven his legal abilities as being
at the top of their field.
Federal Trucking Regulations
As commercial freight-bearing vehicles pose serious threats to public safety,
there are hundreds of federal laws, rules, and regulations governing the
trucking industry. From hours-of-service regulations that aim to address
the dangers of tired drivers to strict drug and alcohol laws and vehicle
regulations, these laws are designed to reduce the risks of extremely
dangerous truck accidents. With a well-versed knowledge of the various
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, our firm
is able to highlight any violations made by drivers and companies to demonstrate
their failures to take reasonable measures for keeping the public safe.
Discuss Your Accident with a Clearwater Truck Accident Lawyer
If you or your loved one has been injured in a truck accident, you need
legal representation. While all
personal injury and
wrongful death claims pose a number of difficulties and potential complications, truck
accidents are often much more complex. This is because trucking companies
frequently utilize their extensive resources and legal teams to contest
claims in their attempts to pay injured victims as little as possible.
They are in business, of course, to make money, not to pay victims. As
such, injured victims require bold and unwavering legal advocates on their
side who have no aversion to fighting back against even the most powerful
With a proven and measurable record of case results, two board-certified
civil trial experts, and numerous successful recoveries obtained through both
verdicts and settlements, our firm has proven that we can effectively handle these cases and meet
the needs of those we serve. We invite all injured truck accident victims
throughout Pinellas County, the Tampa Bay area, and all surrounding communities
of Florida to schedule a free
case evaluation to discuss the potential merits of your claim.
