Truck accidents shatter many lives. Over the course of my career as a personal injury lawyer, I secured substantial jury verdicts and settlements for serious trucking crash lawsuits in Florida. I got $5.5 million for a couple killed in a high-speed accident when their van was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer traveling above highway speed and $1.3 for a propane truck that ran out of control and killed a motorist who was on vacation with his family, just to name a few. As I’m limited by the terms of confidentiality agreements, I cannot discuss the details of the cases, the names of the parties or the insurance companies involved, but some broad lessons can still be learned.
As an injury lawyer for two decades, I don’t just try cases. I use my trucking experience of solving truck injury and wrongful death cases to further the cause of safer roads. Cases like the ones mentioned protect the rights of trucking accident victims by recovering financial compensation. They also transmit a powerful message of change and of the need to prevent crashes to the trucking industry and to insurance companies.
