Polk County Truck Accident Lawyers
Our lawyers serve Polk County and provide legal services to those who have been injured in an accident with a semi-truck in Florida. Semi-trucks are extraordinarily heavy objects on the roadways in terms of weight and they have the potential to cause serious or deadly injuries when they impact other cars on the road or when they get hit by a car because the semi-truck driver did not provide adequate warnings that the truck was stopped. There are a number of laws, both federal and state, that apply to semi-trucks. Those laws or regulations may be the basis of a claim against the truck driver, the owner of the truck, the trucking company, or the federal motor carrier. The legal relationships among drivers, owners, lessees, and motor carriers can be very complex and not easily understood. Polk County is an area of central Florida with access to interstate highways and a number of industrial facilities that utilize semi-truck transportation. Therefore, there is a high likelihood that you have encountered a volume of semi-trucks on the roadways in Polk County. We all must share the public highway and follow the rules of the road to avoid an accident. Semi-trucks have the same obligation to share the roadway and follow the rules. This includes making appropriate turns, driving in the correct lane, allowing others to pass, using proper signals to other drivers, and taking all appropriate measures to avoid accidents. An accident occurs because someone broke the rules of the road and did something that other drivers did not expect. As lawyers, it is our job to help people in the community recover medical bills, pain and suffering, employment losses, and other damages a result of a truck accident in Polk County.
