Gainesville Truck Accident Attorneys

Truck Crash Lawyer in Gainesville Florida

A typical fully-loaded tractor-trailer weighs around 40 tons! If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident with a large truck, you have probably already discovered that there is a big difference between a car crash and a crash with a big rig or 18 wheeler.

Unlike many car crashes, if you have been injured by a large truck you most likely will require the help of a lawyer. Not only are you probably more severely injured, but you will be facing multiple and complicated insurance issues, powerful insurance companies, and the potential for many parties that can be held responsible for the accident, such as:

  • The driver and owner of the truck
  • The employer
  • The supervisor
  • The loader of the truck
  • The mechanic
  • The inspector

In addition, Federal and State laws regulating interstate trucking are complex. This can be especially problematic when you have several different insurers claiming that the other policy is responsible for paying damages. These insurance companies are also notoriously efficient when it comes to making a proper investigation as difficult as possible.

These are the circumstances facing any truck accident injury victim. Those who have been through a truck accident will need experienced and determined legal counsel and help. In Gainesville and Ocala, Lake City, Inverness and all of North Central Florida, you need Meldon Law to take on your case.

Many truck accident victims also suffer post-traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injuries, which can drastically affect not only the victim but also the lives of the victim’s loved ones.

To that end, we don’t accept every single case that walks through our door. Larger firms that spend millions on advertising are often no more than “settlement factories,” with crucial negotiations being handled by first year associates with barely any practical legal experience or even paralegals. That does not happen here. Every case that is accepted by Meldon Law is given our full attention and the benefit of our years of experience.
