Truck Accidents on Non-divided Two-lane Roadways
Millions of Americans place themselves in danger while driving every day, and drivers are particularly vulnerable to the hazards posed by commercial trucks.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident, we can determine whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit, and help you secure the ample compensation needed to cope with your many losses.

Two-lane Highways Place Drivers at Greater Risk
The sheer size and weight of large trucks means those in passenger cars have a much higher chance of incurring debilitating injuries (such as brain injuries) or being killed as a result of a collision. When the constrictive nature of a non-divided roadway places fast-moving trucks and passenger cars in dangerously close proximity, these risks become even greater. In fact, more than half of fatalities involving multi-ton trucks occur on a non-divided two-lane road. Poor weather conditions, distracted or fatigued drivers, and excessive speed or unsafe driving practices can all contribute to the increase in danger. The trucking industry is governed by strict regulations to ensure your safety. When these regulations are not obeyed, the repercussions can be devastating.
Protect Your Best Interests
If you have been involved in any kind of auto accident, it is extremely important to refrain from discussing fault at the scene. Instead, contact the rapid response team at Moody Law. We are available 24 hours a day to dispatch a team of experts to the scene of your accident. Out attorneys will gather the information necessary to build a compelling case on your behalf. You can trust our attorneys to thoroughly analyze the crucial details of your accident to provide you with outstanding representation.
From the moment you reach out to us, our attorneys will act quickly and aggressively to gather evidence. Driver logs, company maintenance records, black box data, and witness accounts can all be pertinent in the construction of your case. Often, an entity other than the driver, such as the Florida Department of Highway Safety of Motor Vehicles (the organization responsible for enforcing cargo regulations) may be at fault. We have successfully handled hundreds of auto accident cases, and will use our knowledge to help you collect the damages you deserve.
