Orlando Truck Accident Lawyer

We'll help you get the compensation you deserve

Do you need an injury attorney for an Orlando truck accident?

When you have been involved in an accident with a tractor trailer, 18-wheeler, or another type of large semi truck, the injuries and significance of the accident is usually far more severe than an accident with a normal motor vehicle.

Being in an accident with a commercial truck is a terrifying experience, and the hassle of prosecuting a large company with lawyers on retainer can seem like an impossible task. Commercial trucking companies will fight to keep their reputations intact, and have no problem shelling out money to defense lawyers so they don’t have to pay out injury settlements. Don’t let these companies intimidate you, and know that you don’t have to fight these large entities alone.

At Florida Car Accident Lawyer Team, our group of dedicated attorneys have the experience and knowledge to fight these commercial companies, and ensure they compensate the victims of their negligence properly.

What factors cause truck accidents?

Driving large commercial trucks is not the same as driving an everyday vehicle, and requires a different skill set. Drivers that operate these large vehicles like trucks and buses are required to obtain commercial driver’s licences, and must prove that they have the ability to operate these vehicles properly. Unfortunately, this process doesn’t mean a driver will not make a mistake. Sometimes, an accident can even occur that is completely out of the operator’s control. Common causes of truck accidents include (but are not limited to):

Sleep deprived operators

Distracted drivers

Operators driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI)

Unsafe road conditions

Drivers that are not properly trained

What situations result in a truck accident?

Driver is in a blind spot

Large trucks have a wide blind spot to the mid/rear portion of the truck, and cannot see drivers in that spot. When a truck driver has not been attentive, they may not notice that a motor vehicle has moved into the lane beside them. This results in an accident when the truck driver attempts to merge lanes.

Load has shifted

Large trucks normally carry a great deal of inventory. This inventory can weigh a significant amount, and is liable to shift during transport. When a load shift s in the truck, the truck becomes less balanced and is more likely to drift, resulting in the truck driver losing control of the vehicle.

Descending hills

When descending an elevated portion of road, trucks are more susceptible to accidents because of their forward momentum, as well as their likelihood to tip over. This descent becomes even more dangerous when a turn is involved.

Detached cargo

This type of accident is usually a result of negligence before a truck driver has even hit the road. Cargo that has not been properly strapped down, or is loose on a truck bed, can fly off of the truck causing accidents and injury.

Injuries associated with truck accidents

Crush injuries

Crush injuries result from a body part being smashed against another object. These injuries are especially prone to compartment syndrome, where the bleeding/swelling can cause loss of blood flow and oxygen to the affected area.

Broken ribs

Because large trucks create a significant impact, people involved in these crashes often violently hit the dashboard of their cars. This is a common cause of broken ribs, and can lead to more serious internal issues.


Similar to broken ribs, this is normally a result of hitting the dashboard or steering wheel of a car. In some cases, more severe head trauma can occur.


Whiplash occurs when your neck is violently jerked in the opposite direction of your body. This can result in serious spinal cord damage, and affect your nervous system.
