Investigating Trucking Companies in Florida
Experienced attorney who can help you recover compensation
Investigating a truck accident often takes more time and dedication than checking into a passenger-car crash. Whether it’s a rollover, jackknife, or wide-turn crash, these accidents often involve more potentially liable parties than just the driver. The trucking company or cargo loaders, for example, could bear some responsibility for your injuries.
Due to all the records trucking companies are required to keep, there is also a lot more evidence to review, too. The Cerasa Law Firm LLC has a deep understanding of Florida and federal trucking regulations: We know the kinds of records, journals, recordings, and audits the trucking industry is required to maintain as well as how to break through obstacles to obtain the information to support your claim.
You can trust truck accident lawyer Michael Cerasa to put in the hard work and long hours necessary to win you the most compensation possible for your injuries and property lost.
Our firm gives free case consultations to accident victims. A member of our legal team will listen to the details of your accident, property loss, and injuries then explain your legal options in plain English.
Truck accident evidence
To keep their certificates and licenses to operate intact, trucking company owners, truckers, and other employees are required to maintain work records for things like truck maintenance, driver health, cargo weight, and toll receipts. All these records, and more, can be analyzed for data that will prove your case.
Here are just some of the documents and other information that may be useful in winning your truck accident claim:
- Trucker medical exams and most recent health screening
- Distance traveled logs
- Traffic accident report
- Trucking cab black box audio
- Witness statements
- Vehicle parts manufacturer recalls
- Surveillance footage
- Maintenance records
- Pay stubs
- Criminal and arrest records
- Expense receipts
- Dash-cam video
- Enforcement orders against the company or driver
- Periodic safety audit results
- Traffic accident report
- Blood alcohol content test results (BAC)
- Freight weight records
More time on cases than on TV
If you or a loved one is the victim of a truck accident; this is not the time trust your claim to a TV lawyer running a settlement mill. These places are more concerned with collecting their legal fees than getting you justice or a settlement that fully pays for short- and long-term injury treatment.
A mill’s business model relies on volume and speed. Most of them would rather settle dozens of accident-claims for $5,000 each than investigate one complicated case worth $100,000.
Don’t settle for less than your case is worth. If you fail to get everything you need in a settlement or verdict now, your family could wind up struggling with a lifetime of accident-related medical expenses and debt.
When attorney Cerasa goes to negotiate your settlement, you can trust that he’s backed by the full fire power of an unrestricted investigation, a raft of strong evidence, and aggressive legal reasoning the insurance companies will find it difficult to deny.
If the insurance companies won’t offer a reasonable settlement, we can file a civil lawsuit and fight them in court.
Our firm represents most accident survivors on contingency, meaning that our legal fee is paid by the insurance company for the at-fault party or parties – not you. We only get paid when we win. Contact us for a free case evaluation and start building your case today.
