The Gainesville Trucking Collision attorneys, of Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A., represent clients who have suffered personal injuries caused in an accident with a semi-tractor trailer, or other heavy truck. According to a 2012 study by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which analyzed crash data statistics for a 10 year span from 2000 to 2010, Florida consistently ranked amongst the top 3 states having the highest fatality rate for accidents involving heavy trucks. While the trucking industry is certainly a lifeline of our country, the potential for deadly and devastating destruction is a huge concern.

Many of us underestimate the power of a motor vehicle, let alone the power of a heavy truck. Having the combined practice experience of more than three decades, the Trucking Collision Attorneys of the Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A. understand the powerful and destructive capability of every automobile. Collisions involving trucks, however, are of a unique kind. Trucking accidents can be particularly devastating due to the sheer weight of a typical truck, when compared to the average mid-size car. This risk applies not only to tractor trailers, but also to any heavy truck. Other types of heavy trucks include dump trucks, emergency vehicles, utility trucks, passenger vans, and a variety of other service and recreational vehicles.

Trucking accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Although bad weather, unsafe road conditions, and even other motorists may be contributing factors to a collision, many trucking accidents result due to a truck driver’s negligence. Common causes include distracted driving, speeding, driver fatigue, and driving while impaired or under the influence. In some cases, the truck driver’s employer may be held liable for failing to properly maintain a vehicle, employing under qualified drivers, and allowing employees to drive for periods longer than permitted by law.

Sometimes trucking accidents can occur even when the motorists involved operate their vehicles in a reasonable and cautious manner. In such cases, a faulty or defective component of a vehicle may be to blame. Examples of defective vehicle components include tires, braking systems, and steering mechanisms. The Trucking Collision Attorneys of the Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A. have experience handling a diverse range of trucking accidents. We will investigate your matter to determine all possible causes, as well as all potential sources of compensation.
