When a tractor-trailer or another large truck crashes into the back of your car, the injuries and damage can be severe. Rear-end accidents occur due to many of the most common causes of truck accidents – distracted driving, falling asleep at the wheel or tailgating. Whatever the cause of your rear-end accident, Armando Personal Injury Law can work with you to hold the trucker accountable for their actions.
Accidents involving tractor-trailers sometimes involve another vehicle becoming trapped underneath the trailer part of the truck. They are often described as underride truck accidents, since the vehicle is trapped underneath the truck. Tractor-trailers are supposed to be equipped with safety guards designed to prevent underride accidents. Defective brake lights can also be a contributing factor, since other drivers may not realize the truck is stopping until it’s too late.
Tractor-trailer accidents sometimes involve the trailer part of the truck folding in on itself, especially if the truck rolls over or is sliding on its side. This is called “jackknifing” because the trailer of the truck and the truck cab itself form a V shape, similar to a jackknife. Vehicles caught between the trailer and the truck are often crushed, resulting in serious injuries to people in the smaller vehicle.
Large, commercial semi-trucks – especially tractor-trailers – sometimes roll over, causing serious accidents involving other vehicles. Rollover accidents can occur for many different reasons. Sometimes, speeding truckers who lose control of their truck are to blame. Other times, truck tire blowouts due to poor maintenance are to blame. Whatever the reason, our law firm can defend your rights.
Head-on truck collisions are among the most serious truck accidents we handle at our law firm. Worst of all, many head-on collisions caused by commercial vehicle drivers can be prevented. Sometimes, speeding truckers are to blame. Other times, truckers under the influence of alcohol or asleep at the wheel cause head-on truck accidents. However your head-on collision occurred, we’re here to help you hold the trucker accountable for their actions.
Because commercial trucks are so large, many tractor-trailers and other large vehicles cause serious motor vehicle accidents which often result in fatalities. Dealing with a fatal truck accident can be overwhelming. That’s why many families in Tampa and throughout Florida’s Gulf Coast turn to our law firm after a fatal accident. Armando Personal Injury Law knows how to investigate fatal crashes so your family can focus on what matters most – mourning the loss of your loved one. We’re here for you when it matters most.
