Providing Attorney Representation in Florida Since 1985
While most people believe commercial truck accidents always involve the truck itself crashing, there is another class of semi truck accidents that can be equally as dangerous and even more frequent. These accidents occur when something falls out of the back of a truck, causing a dangerous situation to the drivers behind the vehicle. If you or a loved one has been victimized by an unsecured truck load, please call a Florida semi truck accident lawyer from Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath.
Our lawyer can seek compensation for injuries suffered from flying truck debris
Unsecured truck accidents can involve flat beds with improperly tied down cargo or trailers without properly secured doors. Sometimes shovels, axes or similar items escape from the cargo area and fly into the driver of a vehicle, which can cause serious injury to a driver or passenger, as well as a major accident involving that car. In other situations, tanker trucks may spill the liquids they are carrying, creating a dramatic change in the road conditions, which may result in an accident. Occasionally, trucks with large pieces of cargo may lose their loads, and following vehicles may crash into these objects. Even something as light as a textile rug can be deadly if it manages to cover the windshield of a vehicle. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident similar to any of these examples, you have legal recourse. Call a skilled Florida semi truck accident attorney as soon as possible.
