Hundreds of thousands of people traveling United States’ roads are injured or killed in truck accidents every year. In 2015, nearly 5,000 vehicles were involved in fatal crashes with commercial trucks in Florida alone, as we have some of the deadliest interstates in the nation. Truck accidents are often, though not always, the fault of the truck driver or truck company. Truckers drive for long distances and work long hours; dozing off at the wheel, distracted driving, and intoxicated driving may be factors that contribute to a crash. Because trucks are so much larger than other vehicles and may be carrying heavy cargo, it takes trucks much longer to come to a stop than passenger cars, and any collision with a smaller vehicle can be catastrophic to those passengers. If you were injured in a truck accident that was caused by truck driver negligence, you have a legal right to seek compensation for your injuries!
A serious truck crash can permanently change your life and the lives of your family members forever. You deserve to be paid for the costs of an accident that wasn’t your fault, but unfortunately, Florida’s PIP laws and insurance claims process can be difficult to navigate alone. You need to hire an aggressive attorney whose knowledge and past success recovering damages in truck accident injury cases can give you an advantage! At The Florida Law Group, we will take the time to listen to your story, investigate the accident, explain your legal options, and stand up for your legal rights. Our St. Petersburg truck accident injury lawyers have won over $1 billion dollars for injured victims since 1984! We know what it takes to get you what you deserve.

You shouldn’t be burdened by the costs of your injuries when an accident wasn’t your fault. Our attorneys pursue a fair settlement!
Being injured when a commercial truck collides with your vehicle is a traumatic, expensive experience. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may have to pay for ambulatory or air transport, emergency room care, hospitalization, surgeries, imaging tests (like X-rays and MRIs), physical therapy, chiropractic care, medical devices, copays, deductibles, mediations, counseling, and more. You might not be able to return to work for weeks or even months, and miss out on wages. You may become permanently disabled and require lifelong care. You may no longer be able to participate in activities you once enjoyed. The total costs of the accident could add up to be hundreds of thousands of dollars, and that’s not even including the cost to repair or replace your vehicle.
The insurance company of the at-fault party should theoretically cover these costs for you, but because paying out claims hurts insurers financially, they will do everything in their power to devalue or deny you benefits. Insurance companies may sound friendly on the phone, but they are not your friend. Trying to argue with them while you are still healing can seem exhausting and hopeless, which is where the negotiating power of an attorney comes in. Our St. Petersburg truck accident injury lawyers are not afraid to go to bat with insurance companies, even going so far as to take your case to trial if necessary! We know what tactics these companies use to avoid paying you what you deserve and how to fight them. Our team has over 100 years of combined experience and a winning track record for accident victims!

About The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg Presence
In 2021, The Florida Law Group announced our new St. Petersburg office, one of our now 11 locations around the state! Before that, we had been offering representation to truck accident victims in St. Pete via our Tampa office, but today we are closer and more accessible than ever before. If you live in St. Pete, you don’t have to travel out of the Pinellas Peninsula to meet with us! St. Petersburg is a vibrant, highly populated city (the 5th most crowded in the state). In the nearby Tampa Bay area, there are many crowded highways and interstates which means that drivers here are statistically more likely to be involved in a truck accident.
