Speeding Trucks Injury Lawyer

When a large semi-truck or other commercial truck is speeding, it poses a serious risk to others on the road. These mammoths on the highways are difficult to stop and control when they stay within the speed limits but become very dangerous when they reach high speeds. If a speeding commercial truck caused an injury or fatality accident that harmed you or someone you love, there are legal options to seek restitution for damages caused by the driver’s negligence.

In Florida, large trucks are allowed to go the same speed as passenger vehicles. This means a truck weighing up to 80,000 pounds may be legally traveling at 70 MPH on some highways. High speeds can be risky for large trucks. The excess weight and size of these vehicles makes it hard to swerve or stop at high speeds. Even when a commercial truck driver is within the speed limit, they can cause serious accidents if they are unable to effectively control their vehicle.

Determining Fault in a Large Truck Accident

Speed is one of the factors that can help determine who was at fault in an injury truck accident. If the driver of the truck was going above the speed limit, it can help prove that they had difficulty controlling the vehicle. However, if the truck was within the speed limit and it can be proven the driver could not stop in time or caused a collision due to the speed they were traveling, they could be liable for the accident. In addition, the trucking company that employs the driver may also be partially liable for the accident.

Speed and large trucks do not mix and can be deadly on the roadways. If you have been injured in a truck accident where speed was a factor, contact our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law today. We offer free consultations to discuss truck accident injury claims at our office in Tampa.

What Our Happy Clients say

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 & Sanders 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 & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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.
