Representing Injured Truck Crash Victims in Complex Claims
Commercial trucks are a necessary part of our economy. These trucks travel the country and throughout Florida, and they pose a risk to all other drivers on the road. This is because if a semi-truck crashes, it can result in devastating injuries and fatalities to other motorists. While the law gives truck accident victims the right to seek compensation from negligent truck drivers and companies, these claims can be highly complex and challenging.
After a truck crash, you first want to get the medical attention you need for your injuries. Then, you should always discuss your legal rights and options with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Orlando. The Law Offices of Jerrod Paul, P.A., represents truck crash victims throughout Osceola County and Orange County, Florida, and we know how to stand up for your rights after serious injuries.

Depending on the cause of your crash, liable parties might include the truck driver, trucking company, third-party loading companies, mechanics, truck manufacturers, and more.
