Diligent Investigation and Aggressive Advocacy for Florida Trucking Accident Victims
Trucking companies and other companies that use commercial vehicles have a responsibility to take necessary safety precautions with their drivers and their vehicles. Proper driver training, responsible delivery deadlines and sufficient maintenance can make the road safer for all drivers and passengers.
Unfortunately, truck accidents still occur. Many truck accidents are the result of negligence on the part of the driver or the trucking company. In 2008, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 250 people in Florida died in accidents involving large trucks. Trucking accidents on I-75 and other Florida interstates are more common than they should be.

High-Stakes Insurance Issues in Truck Accident Cases
Unlike car accidents, where some motorists have little or no insurance coverage, commercial truck companies traveling in interstate commerce (which is to say, most truck companies) are required to carry $750,000.00 of insurance for bodily injury and property damage. Given the high financial stakes involved, insurers for truck companies will take every step necessary to limit their clients’ liability.
At Reeder & Nussbaum, our attorneys provide equally tenacious, experienced representation to the victims of truck and commercial vehicle accidents throughout the area.
Investigating Truck Accidents and Obtaining Compensation for Injury Victims
There are many reasons why truck and commercial vehicle accidents can occur. Many of these causes are entirely preventable. It is critically important for your attorney to thoroughly investigate all possible causes of the trucking accident, to make sure that all responsible parties are held liable for the financial costs of the accident. At Reeder & Nussbaum, we have extensive experience investigating trucking accidents to determine the underlying causes.
After determining cause, the second important step is to calculate the full financial cost of the tractor trailer accident for the injury victims. Working with medical experts and rehabilitation specialists, we develop a full picture of all the treatment the injury victim will require. We add the cost of those treatments to the other economic costs and a calculation of pain and suffering, and then we present our demand to the trucking company’s insurance carrier.
