Truck accidents almost always result in serious, life-changing injuries or death. The sheer size and weight of a tractor trailer compared to a passenger vehicle guarantees devastating injuries from an accident.
Because so many parties are often involved in a truck crash – the driver, the trucking company, the insurance company, among others – the process for collecting damages can be complex. Having an experienced attorney on your side is critical to recovering the compensation you need for your injuries.
Our Palm Beach Gardens truck accident lawyers have decades of experience representing accident injury victims and their families. We have recovered numerous multimillion dollar verdicts on behalf of clients who were injured in tractor trailer collisions.

Truck Accident Liability
Depending on the circumstances of a truck accident, there are a number of parties who can be held liable for your injuries, including the:
- Truck driver
- Driver’s employer
- Owner of the truck
- Manufacturer of the truck or trailer
- Company leasing the truck or the owner of the lease
- Owner of the trailer
A reputable truck accident lawyer will review your claim and investigate the cause of the accident to determine who should be held liable for your losses. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for the defendant to deny fault or try to escape liability.
Through their own investigation, the trucking company and its insurance company will try to prove the accident was not their fault. Our experienced attorneys will also conduct our own investigation, consult with medical experts, interview witnesses and even recreate the accident scene in order to prove your innocence in the accident.
Our team will investigate:
- Truck maintenance records
- Driving logs and records
- Criminal record of the driver
- Potential manufacturing defects
- Previous violations of driving regulations
Our Palm Beach Gardens truck accident lawyers are skilled in handling complex tractor trailer cases and will do everything they can to get you the compensation you deserve.
We will work closely with insurance companies to negotiate fair reparations, and are not afraid to take a case to trial if they refuse to offer just compensation. As experienced trial lawyers, we are committed to fighting for the rights of the injured. Schedule a free review of your claim today so our team can get started building a robust case on your behalf.

Common Causes of Tractor Trailer Accidents
As with most vehicle accidents in Palm Beach Gardens and throughout the country, tractor trailer collisions are almost always the result of negligence or carelessness. Some of the most frequent causes of truck crashes we have seen include:
- Fatigued drivers
- Driving under the influence
- Shifting, poorly loaded or overloaded cargo
- Failing to use a turn signal
- Distracted driving
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
- Driving recklessly
- Inexperienced drivers
Accidents can also occur as a result of a defective truck or component. In these cases you may be entitled to file a product liability lawsuit focused on a manufacturer’s negligence.
In situations where a loved one died in an accident, a wrongful death lawsuit may be brought by the surviving family in order to recover costs for funerals, lost income and other damages.
We urge you to contact an attorney as soon as possible if you have been injured in a truck accident. You should be focused on recuperating from your injuries rather than worrying about mounting expenses. Let us fight to secure your financial stability by holding the responsible parties liable for your damages.
