Florida Personal Injury Attorney Goes to Work for Victims of Trucking Accidents in the Lakeland Area
Helping clients in Wauchula, Bartow, Haines City, Lake Wales, Winter Haven and Sebring recover proper compensation for their injuries
Florida is home to numerous highways that help people get around the state with ease, but they also increase the likelihood of being involved in an accident along the way. Truck-related accidents are among the most serious you can be involved in while traveling throughout Florida because of the size of the trucks on the road and the hazards involving the cargo they tow. Veteran attorney Nora Leto at Kaylor, Kaylor & Leto, P.A. has handled countless personal injury cases over more than three decades. Our firm has an extensive understanding of how to effectively represent you if you have sustained injuries from a trucking accident.
Who is responsible for your trucking accident?
You can fall victim to a range of different types of trucking accidents. Attorney Leto looks into the details of your accident and helps establish fault with the proper party, including:
- The truck driver — Most of the time, these accidents take place because of driver negligence. Speeding, reckless driving and distracted driving are all common mistakes drivers make that cause accidents. If this is the case, we go after the driver to collect compensation for any serious injuries you have suffered as a result of his or her negligence.
- The trucking company — There are times when the trucking company that employs the driver is responsible for an accident. The trucking company is in charge of truck maintenance and a driver’s schedule. Such issues as malfunctioning trucks and overworked or inexperienced employees often lead to a serious accident; this then falls on the company’s shoulders. In these cases, we seek damages on your behalf from the trucking company and anyone else who is involved with the truck’s condition. Under federal law, if a company has a trucking permit, it can be held responsible for all accidents.
- The vehicle’s manufacturer — Defective auto parts, including tires and axles, are hazards on the road that can lead to a serious accident. That’s why we thoroughly examine the evidence of your case to see if a faulty part played a role in your accident. If so, we go after the truck’s manufacturer to collect compensation from the responsible company.
