Tampa Truck Accident Attorney
Representing Injured People in Tampa and Throughout Florida
The road is full of commercial vehicles including construction vehicles, semi trucks, delivery trucks and tow trucks. And unfortunately, these large vehicles can cause devastating accidents that leave innocent victims with serious injuries that require expensive medical treatment. Victims may also suffer from lost wages if they are unable to work due to their injuries. At the Capaz Law Firm, we represent clients who have been injured in commercial vehicle accidents and will fight to hold the at-fault party accountable. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s negligence.
Causes of Commercial Vehicle Accident
The employer or company for the responsible party (or its insurance company) will initiate an immediate investigation. Even when the truck driver's liability is fairly clear, some insurance carriers and commercial companies will attempt to dispute liability and the severity and significance of the accident victim's injuries in an effort to limit the financial recovery. For some companies, accidents are just a "cost of doing business".
An Experienced Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney Can Fight For You
Tampa personal injury lawyer Dereck Capaz has extensive knowledge and experience handling commercial vehicle accidents. Following his time as a prosecutor at the Hillsborough County State Attorney's Office, he worked for a well-respected civil defense firm in Tampa and focused most of his practice on vehicle accidents and serious bodily injury cases. Mr. Capaz was one of the attorneys hired by large trucking companies and was on the "first response team" that was often called out to accident scenes involving death or catastrophic injuries. He understands these types of accidents and will fight aggressively to hold the negligent party accountable.
It’s important to note that the commercial vehicle driver may not be the only party held accountable for your accident; the driver’s employer and the vehicle manufacturer could also be held accountable depending on the circumstances of the accident. In fact, commercial vehicle companies often keep defense attorneys and accident reconstruction experts on retainer because they know that they can be held accountable for an accident. Therefore, they are prepared to investigate your accident immediately, often before you have a chance to seek medical treatment and well before you have had time to contact a lawyer for yourself. It is the defense attorney’s job to minimize the compensation paid to accident victims like you. That’s why it’s so important to contact a personal injury attorney soon after your accident. Your attorney will represent your best interests by fighting to get you the fair compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
