Jacksonville Truck Accident Attorney

Hit By An 18-Wheeler or Big Rig?

Trucks are common sights on roads across the United States, carrying goods from one side of the country to the other. These massive vehicles are key parts of the distribution system, and they require some of the most intense and restrictive regulations of any class of vehicle in order to ensure the safety of both the drivers and the other people on the road. However, no regulations can stop a reckless or negligent driver from causing a crash and seriously injuring other drivers and their passengers.

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 Jacksonville truck accident attorney from the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. can meet with you for a consultation to determine how much your injuries may be worth and to begin work on filing your claim.

What Should I Do If I Was In a Truck Accident?

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.

Help with Your Truck Accident Claim - Pick Porter!™ (904) 701-0591

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.

    "He prepared our family through each and every step."

    "Bad things happen to good families and people” That is one of the first things Jason said to me and my son. The laws are set to protect us. However, the law can be black and white when there are several shades of grey. If a man has a beer in his own house after coming back from war but is only 20, should his dad be charged for contributing to the delinquency of a minor? Have you ever done something now looking back, it may not have been the best decision but nothing happened? That was not the case a few years ago to my family. A bad decision, one I am sure many of us have done in our younger days. A bad decision was made and it could have ruined a young man’s future. The courts are busy and things can fall through the cracks; I was making sure my son was not one of them. I knew Jason had worked for the District attorney’s office so he knew both sides of the law. He knew what the other side was going to do and say because he was there for many years. He prepared our family through each and every step. He made sure that we were proactive “getting ducks in a row” so to speak. If there was something mentioned, we had already taken care of it and showed no history and really no where for the other side to go. What could have been jail time ended up being a bump in the road. No one can promise anything is a sure thing. Jason did not make any promises he was not prepared to keep. He told us what normally happens, and what he was going to try for and he did. I rather have someone say there is a 70/30 chance than, “sure this is no problem, don’t worry about it”. We do worry about it. It is our lives or one of someone we love. Some cases may not be life or death, but they all are between a life that could be and a life that never will be. Jason understands that and approached it as if was his brother standing next to him. Every now and then, I will look at my son when eating dinner or something and think, if it was not for Jason and his group, I would have to visit my son to see him. I thanked God for Jason being there then, and have every day since.

    "This Legal Team is Wonderful!"
    One night I was awaken by a phone call that my son was in jail, I thought I was having a nightmare. I knew the charges were false but knew we faced a difficult road ahead to prove his innocence. The charges against him could have been enough to have caused him to lose his children, as well as his job and ruin any further career opportunities. He could have served time and had a felony on his record. . We were so lucky to find the law offices of Jason Porter. They came highly recommended and were rated high on the AVVO site. We were scheduled for an appointment the day we called and greeted openly but candidly with the facts of what could happen. He already had the police report and had a pretty good picture of what happen before we even opened our mouth. Jason put us at ease and explained how things would work and assured my son he would do his best to protect him and his good name and to get the charges dropped or reduced to the minimum he assured him he would not make him settle for something he did not do. He was not afraid to take it to trail if that’s what needed to happen. We felt good after hearing his trial record. Gary Shumard also in the office was involved in the day to day dealing of the court appearances and trying to keep it out of trial. He spoke for my son and there were several court appearances. My son was able to work and carry on his normal day because of Gary. During the six month process my son only had to attend one court appearance and that was only because the other side tried again to file additional fraudulent charges against him however, they were immediately dismissed thanks to Gary. In the end they wanted to drop the charges to a misdemeanor; but my son didn’t want anything on his record because he was not guilty! Gary had reviewed their evidence and my son’s evidence and in the end, after six months Gary was able to keep my son’s a record clean. Gary fought hard, gathering evidence and challenging the opposing side with professionalism and knowledge. I feel sure that due to his expertise we were able to avoid a long drawn out trail and more legal expenses. Gary works hard and is at the court house it seems almost every day working for his clients, he is a dedicated attorney with knowledge, and proficiency in handling the law he gathers evidence astutely and reviews both sides he has the ability to present his findings in a very comfortable but clever way. The day the findings came down I think he was almost as happy as we were. He had a right to be it’s like climbing a mountain and getting to the top you know you deserve the view. This law office is wonderful from the secretary who answers the phone, the legal assistants, and everyone in between. We trust this law firm and believe in them with any legal matter they we may have ever!! Richard & Diane Bornstein
