Orlando Truck Accident Attorney
In 2019, tractor-trailer crashes injured more than 150,000 people. That same year, more than 4,000 people were killed in tractor-trailer crashes. Since the mid-2000s, the frequency of tractor-trailer crashes that caused death have only increased. Many times, those hurt by a tractor-trailer crash are left all alone to pick up the pieces.
At Gurney Law, we have extensive experience investigating tractor-trailer crashes and, where appropriate, prosecuting the corporations and insurance companies responsible for causing such wide-spread carnage. To speak with an experienced trucking attorney, call us today.
Why Gurney Law?
Our founder has extensive experience prosecuting commercial motor carriers, truck brokers, insurance companies, and negligent truck drivers, recovering millions of dollars for injured clients and the families of the deceased. While nothing will repair our clients’ permanent injuries or replace those they have lost, many of our clients elect to pursue a claim anyway. Why is that?
A Safer America
In America, a civil action (sometimes referred to as a “lawsuit”) has the power to change unreasonably dangerous industries. Under threat of consequences for unsafe conduct, commercial motor carriers, truck brokers, and insurance companies are incentivized to make their operations safer. At Gurney Law, many of our clients tell us the same thing: “I just don’t want to this to happen to someone else.” Together, we can work to make our roads a safer place to drive.
When a tractor-trailer crashes into someone, the truck driver may call his company even before calling 911. This is because many commercial motor carriers, truck brokers, and insurance companies operate so-called “rapid response teams.” These “teams” are called to the scene of a crash, sometimes within minutes. Often, these “teams” include a defense lawyer – someone hired by the commercial motor carrier, broker, or insurance company for the explicit purpose of protecting their interests. These “teams” are not working to help the injured or deceased victims. In fact, these “teams” may take evidence from the scene of the crash without telling anyone. This is why it is important to call a lawyer with experience handling tractor-trailer crashes as soon as possible after a crash.
If you or someone you know is injured or killed in a tractor-trailer crash, call Gurney Law immediately. We will work around the clock to gather, preserve, and protect evidence critical to proving fault. From there, Gurney Law is equipped to navigate victims through the recovery process. Frequently, this includes a recovery from the commercial motor carrier, truck broker, insurance company, or negligent truck driver.
