Advocating For Clients Seriously Injured

In a legal career that has spanned more than four decades, Mr. Merting has worked on numerous cases involving 18-wheeler accidents, representing motorists, vehicle passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians in claims involving catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Brain injuries
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Burns
  • Organ damage
  • Severe fractures

Our law firm diligently looks into your case to determine how the accident occurred and who was responsible. We interview witnesses, obtain black box evidence, review log books and talk with experts who can help us determine the accident cause. This information allows us to tailor our approach to obtaining fair and just compensation.

We also have experience in complex jurisdictional issues often associated with Florida 18-wheeler accidents. Trucking companies engage in interstate commerce throughout the country, so the at-fault party may reside out-of-state. Additionally, the victim could be a tourist. We help our clients determine where to file claims, the laws associated with the claim, and where they can receive the most favorable outcome.
