Injuries Sustained In 18-Wheeler Truck Accidents
Gulf Breeze 18-wheeler accident attorney John W. Merting represents motorists, vehicle passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians in claims involving catastrophic injuries, including:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Organ damage
- And other serious injuries
Our law firm works hard to determine what happened and who is responsible for our clients' injuries. We interview eye witnesses, obtain black box evidence, review log books and talk with experts who can help us determine the cause of the accident. This information allows us to tailor our approach to obtaining fair and just compensation according to the facts of the case. For example, we will approach a case differently if driver negligence was the cause of the 18-wheeler accident than if negligent maintenance was to blame.
In addition to determining who is to blame, we handle complex jurisdictional issues often associated with Florida 18-wheeler accidents. Trucking companies engage in interstate commerce all over the country, so the at-fault party may be based out-of-state. Additionally, the victim could be a tourist. We help our clients determine where to file the claim based on the facts of their case, the laws associated with their claim, and where they can receive the most favorable outcome.
