Over 25 Years of Advising Florida’s Injured

Helping You With Complex Trucking Accident Claims

Trucking accidents are impactful not only to the one injured but to their entire family. Large trucks are different than smaller vehicles. They can weigh more than 10,000 pounds and utilize other driving mechanisms than a regular passenger vehicle. Because of a large truck’s massive size and power, these accidents frequently result in severe injuries or fatalities for drivers and pedestrians.

Suppose you were involved in a Fort Myers truck accident. In that case, you might be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and loss of earning capacity. As a surviving family member of someone killed in a truck accident, you may also be entitled to damages from a wrongful death lawsuit.

With over 25 years of experience practicing in Florida, I can help you determine what you may be entitled to. I am committed to fighting aggressively for my clients to obtain justice and compensation for their injuries. Getting help with McQuagge Law Firm means you will have personalized attention and support throughout your case.

Distracted Driving Can Cause Catastrophic Harm

Truck drivers face long, exhausting hours on the road. The long hours and lack of sleep can take a toll, and sometimes a trucker may fall asleep or get distracted while driving. This kind of carelessness or mistake could lead to catastrophic consequences for you and your loved ones. Both other traffic on the road and pedestrians on sidewalks can suffer damages from a negligent commercial driver.

Several factors may contribute to a significant truck accident, including:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Maintenance problems
  • Speeding

It can sometimes be complex to identify the responsible party in a truck accident and can often include the driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer and the cargo owner. As an experienced truck accident attorney, I will help you identify the relevant parties and bring each one into the claim to help you get fair compensation for your injuries.

The claims process itself may be slow because of the multiple insurance companies that can be involved. A truck accident case involves a lot of careful planning and attention to detail. As a Florida board-certified attorney, I have experience with this complexity. I can handle the many factors that go into efficiently and effectively representing a client in a trucking accident case.
