Gainesville Truck Accident Lawyer

Large trucks like semi-trailers, dump trucks or delivery vans can cause serious damage to other vehicles in an accident; more importantly, the impact is likely to cause injuries. In recent years, truck accidents have killed thousands of people a year and injured many more. If you are injured or lose a loved one in a truck accident in Alachua County, you need a Gainesville truck accident lawyer to ensure you receive any compensation owed.

Large commercial truck drivers can be independent contractors or employees. When an injury truck accident occurs, and the truck driver is at fault, they may not be the only entity that is liable for damages. Depending on the situation, the truck driver, their employer and even the company that loaded their truck could be liable. Victims who are injured in these accidents need legal help to navigate who is responsible for covering damages. If you contact Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law, a Gainesville truck accident lawyer from our team can advise you on your rights and help you pursue an accident claim.

Causes of Injury Truck Accidents

Some truck accidents are no-fault or caused by other drivers on the road. Others are caused by negligent driving by the operator of the large truck. Proving negligence on the part of a commercial truck driver may be necessary to ensure those injured in the accident can initiate a claim for compensation from the truck driver or their employer. A Gainesville truck accident lawyer can help investigate the accident and discover if the truck driver or their employers acted negligently, causing the accident. Some negligent causes of truck accidents include:

  • Drunk driver
  • Driver using drugs
  • Poorly maintained safety equipment
  • Overloaded truck
  • Falling debris – poorly loaded truck
  • Driver distraction
  • Driver fatigue

Our Gainesville truck accident lawyers can investigate the accident to uncover any negligence. This is important in building a strong claim or lawsuit.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.7 / 5.0

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
