Trucking and Tractor-Trailer Accidents
Trucks cause thousands of accidents and deaths on Florida’s highways each year, including highways in Hernando County, Citrus County, Sumter County and Pasco County. In fact, the number of fatalities and accidents that occur on Florida’s roadways are over four times the national average. Because of their size, crashes involving tractor trailers have the potential to cause catastrophic injury and even death. The truck accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Whittel & Melton know that many of these accidents could have been prevented if the vehicles involved were properly maintained or drivers abided by laws that limit the number of hours they can drive in a week.
At the end of the day, if you have been hurt in a truck crash that was not your fault, you deserve to be fairly compensated. The Law Offices of Whittel & Melton have handled many cases on behalf of Hernando County and Pasco County clients who were in tractor-trailer accidents. It is our experience that to persuade insurance companies to pay a fair amount for a truck accident injury, it is imperative that a proper investigation is undertaken, all evidence is preserved, all medical information is gathered, proper experts are retained as needed, and any and all information is appropriately summarized for the insurance adjuster. Our office is designed to see that that happens.We Will Go to Trial For You
While we seek a fair settlement in every case we handle, we build every case with an eye toward trial so that when trucking companies, and the insurance companies that represent them, do not make a fair settlement offer, we can fight for you in court. In order to press our opponents, we aggressively build cases from the very beginning.
Our representation does not cost our clients anything until they are first compensated for their injuries. If you have been injured in tractor-trailer or truck crash in Spring Hill, Brooksville, New Port Richey, Wesley Chapel or Inverness, please contact us for a consultation.
