Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas trucking accidents
The average tractor-trailer weighs in at 80,000 pounds. When a truck this size collides with an automobile, the chances of surviving the accident unharmed are not good for the occupants of the auto. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has strict laws in place regulating truckers, including:
- Driver qualifications
- Limitations on drivers’ working hours
- Alcohol and drug testing
- Vehicle inspection and maintenance
A collision with a semi-truck can cause devastating damage to a motor vehicle, its driver and passengers. Because of the dangers involved in operating such a vehicle, truck drivers and trucking companies are required to maintain significant insurance coverage. When an accident occurs, the trucking company’s insurance company may seem eager to settle your case. This is a ruse. They are counting on you to accept compensation that may not be enough to cover your accident-related expenses.

We are not intimidated by insurance company threats and we are prepared to fight every step of the way to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
