Truck Accident Attorney

Truck accidents are some of the deadliest types of vehicle accidents. The truck size, load, and path can cause devastating collisions and is a primary reason why they are far more likely to roll over at certain speeds. Another reason why truck accidents are different is the potential involvement of the trucking company to defend against liability. That is why it is absolutely essential to call the Fischetti Law Group, so we can successfully navigate your claim properly and get you the compensation you are rightfully owed.

Why Do Truck Accidents Happen?

Truck accidents are caused by truck driver negligence, trucking company negligence, and truck manufacturer negligence. A truck accident attorney can help you understand which party is liable for your injuries and damages and pursue a legal claim to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Distracted Driving

From phones, tablets, and GPS, there is no limit to the devices that can distract us while on the roadways. Truck drivers commonly travel long distances and perhaps may be more inclined to indulge in entertainment/distraction – but remember, it only takes ONE second of distraction for an accident to occur.


Truckers on a schedule can fall into the trap of speeding which is a major reason why it’s so common. As 18-wheelers speed down the highway, they are prone to roll-overs and catastrophic collisions.

Sleep Deprivation

Those who drive trucks know the grueling hours involved on a daily/nightly. Sleep deprivation can become an issue and in some cases, one second out of focus can spell disaster. Damage and accidents can occur when a driver is not in the right frame of mind in terms of energy and focus.

Driving Recklessly

Driving recklessly is always dangerous and a liability on the roadways. Swerving, sporadic lane switching and tailgating are just some of the ways that signify a reckless driver. Unfortunately, people tend to pay the price for someone else’s carelessness. Luckily, with our team by your side, you can get the help and compensation you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

You may be able to file a lawsuit against the truck driver’s trucking company if you have been injured in a truck accident. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to sue the trucker’s employer for negligence or other wrongdoing. However, trucking companies often have complex insurance policies and corporate structures that can make it difficult to file a successful claim. A Florida truck accident attorney like Mike Fischetti can help you understand your options and guide you through the legal process.

No Zones are essentially “blind spots” located beside or behind commercial trucks, where visibility is nonexistent to the truck driver. These can be incredibly dangerous, as the truck driver may make driving decisions with the assumption that it is clear.

Several factors need to be taken into account when determining liability.

  • The driver’s employer or client
  • The truck owner
  • The truck manufacturer (especially if the crash was the result of a defective part)
  • Third-party contractors or businesses responsible for the cargo

• Document – Photos, descriptions, time, names.
• Talk to witnesses

Know Now, To Save Yourself Later

Insurance companies will likely use terminology and words that you are perhaps not familiar with. This is one tactic insurance companies use in an attempt to get you to sign. Here are some need-to-know definitions when dealing with truck accidents:

Override Truck Accidents: When a large truck crashes into another vehicle and consequently ends up over the back of the vehicle

Underride Truck Accidents: When a car crashes into a large truck and consequently ends up under the back of the truck.

Deadhead: A truck containing no cargo

Jackknife: When the tractor and trailer are at a sharp angle to one another.

VIN: Vehicle Identification Number. The manufacturer gives a unique VIN to every vehicle.
