Jacksonville Truck Accident Attorney
Hit by an 18-wheeler or big rig?
If you have been injured in a truck accident, you should not hesitate to
retain legal representation for help in seeking the maximum settlement
possible. You may have staggering medical bills and severe injuries, and
if the accident was caused by the truck driver, you deserve to be fully
compensated. A professional from the law office of Jason K.S. Porter can
meet with you for a consultation to determine how much your injuries may
be worth and to begin work on filing your claim.
You should not accept a settlement from the insurance company before discussing
the situation with us, as you may be entitled to significantly more than
you have been initially offered. Semi-trucks and 18-wheelers pose a serious
threat to other drivers, due to the simple fact that they are several
times larger than any other vehicle on the road and are capable of causing
devastating damage in a collision.
Truck drivers require commercial licenses and are required to exercise
a high level of caution to avoid accidents, and when negligent driving
leads to injuries, they can be held liable for damages. Truckers are typically
under pressure to meet delivery deadlines and will often violate federal
regulations by driving long hours, sometimes under the influence of dangerous
stimulants. There are also truck accidents on record which were caused
by texting while driving, as well as
drunk-driving accidents involving big rigs.

The truck driver may also be found liable for your injuries for driving
under unsafe road conditions. High winds, icy roads and heavy rain make
it dangerous to drive large trucks, and when the driver pushes the limits
of safety and ends up in a rollover or a jackknife, other vehicles are
often caught up in the damage. Whether you suffered a
spinal cord injury, a
brain injury or if you are seeking a
wrongful death settlement, an attorney from our firm will work tirelessly to help you
maximize your compensation for the accident.
