FOCUS AREA: BROWARD, PALM BEACH, MIAMI CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS

At Justice Law Firm, we have handled hundreds of tractor trailer, 18-wheeler, and commercial truck accident cases.  We dedicate our resources and staff to every truck accident case whether it involves a minor injury, a severe injury, or wrongful death.

Our accident lawyers have recovered at least 3 times more money for truck accident cases involving 18-wheelers, freight carriers, and commercial trucks when compared to the equivalent car accident case with the same injury.
The reason our lawyers recover far greater money for commercial truck accidents is because the insurance carrier is usually out of state. The premiums that trucking companies pay to these commercial insurance carriers is astronomical compared to what a typical car driver pays for insurance. This means that the commercial insurance company has more money to spend to settle truck accident cases and our accident lawyers know how to get it.

These out of state insurance companies do not understand Florida law or Florida juries and do not have the local resources to fight a case like the local car insurance companies (i.e. – State Farm, Progressive, GEICO, Allstate). These out of state commercial insurance companies have to hire a law firm to fight the case. It can cost an insurance company tens of thousands of dollars to defend a truck accident case against our accident attorneys. Local insurance companies usually have in-house lawyers fighting their cases. In-house attorneys are paid a salary from the company and do not cost another dime to fight a case.

When you are in an accident with a large truck, your vehicle is most likely totaled or damaged beyond repair. This means you need a rental car until your vehicle is replaced. Our truck accident attorneys and staff understand this and all issues about your accident case and will help you every step of the way. Our accident attorneys handle truck cases in Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, Pompano Beach, Hollywood, Davie, Plantation, Delray Beach, Lake Worth, Miami, and Palm Beach.

Our accident attorneys will get you an appointment with a doctor that same day if needed. We work with a network of doctor offices throughout Florida ranging from chiropractors, therapists, neurologists, orthopedics, and surgeons. Some people do not believe in chiropractic care, some need medication for pain, and others simply just need therapy. No matter what your medical needs are – our accident lawyers will find you the right doctor and get your injuries the proper care needed and make sure you are comfortable too.

Our car accident law firm has the resources to challenge the big insurance companies and fight for your rights even if it has to go to trial. Our accident lawyers have the reputation for being aggressive and making these companies pay top dollar for motorcycle cases because we prepare our cases for trial. However, we realize that our clients prefer to settle their case, if possible, without going to trial. Our strategy gets the insurance company to pay top dollar now rather than later. That is why we settle over 90% of our car accident cases without litigation or trial.

Our accident attorneys handle car cases in Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, Pompano Beach, Hollywood, Davie, Plantation, Delray Beach, Lake Worth, Miami, and Palm Beach.

Most truck accidents on the highway and freeway involve jack-knife accidents. A jack-knife refers to the dangerous situation that occurs when a large 18 wheel truck goes into a skid and the trailer swings out and stops to form an angle of 90 degrees with each other. The chances of this dangerous situation increase in inclement weather – jackknifing generally occurs when the drive wheels are locked when they reach a slick spot while the front wheels and the trailer keep rolling forward.
