Helping You Win Your Truck Accident Case
Trucks are heavy, and need a driver to pay extra attention to the road. Unfortunately, not all truck drivers are careful. As a result, a truck accident can be devastating for you and your loved ones. Even minor accidents take time to recover from. There are several steps on the road to recovery, and we at Pardy & Rodriguez are here to help.
Our priority is helping your family get back to the life you knew before the Truck accident.
What is a Truck Accident?
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), a large truck has a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 10,000 pounds. A bus is any motor vehicle designed primarily to transport nine or more persons, including the driver. Those types of trucks are called tractor-trailers, or semis.

Some truck accidents may have only damage to the vehicle; others might have severe injuries or death. There are many factors that contribute to Truck accidents, and sometimes these accidents have legal consequences. In many cases, especially if there are injuries or property damage, you should consider hiring an experienced Florida attorney.
What should you do as a Truck accident victim?
The most important thing is your well being, and the well being of those around you. Check for injuries, and call for help. If anyone has an injury, keep him or her calm, but do not move them.
It is a good idea to call the police, even if there are no serious injuries. The police will help determine what happened, assess injuries, and create a police report that you will need later on to file with your insurance Truckrier. Do not leave the scene! Plus, don’t move your vehicle unless it interferes with traffic.
