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 50 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 semi-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 trucking companies.

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 semi-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.
