I-4 Car Accident on Fire By Moody Law | Personal Injury Attorneys on August 27, 2010

A UPS semi-truck burst into flames after jacknifing, losing control, and striking a 2008 Ford Edge SUV.  The accident occurred near Fairbanks Avenue blocked traffic for several hours.  The driver of the truck, Craig Roy, 39, of Middleberg, told the Florida HIghway Patrol that his truck had a mechanical issue and lost control.  The truck struck the concrete barrier of the median.  Steven Lambert, of Fleming Island, was a passenger in the UPS truck.  The driver of the SUV was Michael Shaver of Maitland, Florida, 44.  Roy was apparently not injured.  Charges are pending in this crash.

Semi-trucks have a heightened responsibility on the roadway because of their size and weight.  When those commercial trucks collide with the average everyday car, the damages are frequently more severe than a simple car accident.  If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury as a result of a semi-truck or commercial truck accident, please contact a Central Florida truck accident lawyer with Moody Law to discuss the facts and circumstances of your case.  While every case is different, negligence is almost the cause whether it is negligence behind the wheel or negligence in maintaining the vehicle.  Large corporations and owners of vehicles are strictly liable for making sure that maintenance is properly done.  The normal service areas of our Central Florida truck accident attorneys is Lakeland, Winter Haven, Bartow, Haines City, Davenport, Auburndale, Lake Wales, and all of Polk County, Florida.  We also handle additional cases on a statewide basis.
