When you’ve experienced injury after an auto accident, you should consult with an attorney in order to seek the compensation you deserve to cover medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. The Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. is here to help.

It is dangerous enough when two automobiles collide. The likelihood of serious injury or death only increases when one of the vehicles involved is a truck. According to a 2009 report published by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), heavy truck crashes resulted in 1,661 crashes with serious injuries and 56 involving fatalities.

If you or someone you love suffered injury in a car accident, please contact Tampa auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham immediately at 888.352.2886 to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Tampa Automobile and Truck Accident Attorney Can Help

Since 1977, James O. Cunningham has helped car drivers and passengers seek just compensation for injuries and deaths caused by the negligent actions of truck drivers, trucking companies and big rig parts manufacturers. Defective parts or improper enforcement of government regulations can lead to many auto accidents. However, the most common causes of truck and automobile crashes indicated that driver error is the most likely culprit. Some examples cited by the FLHSMV report include the following:

  • Careless driving
  • Failing to yield right-of-way
  • Improper backing up
  • Improper lane changing
  • Improper turning
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Following too closely

Any of these errors can result in a truck jackknifing, rolling over, sideswiping or otherwise barreling into a car. Considering the legal average weight for an 18-wheeler is 40 tons as opposed to an automobile, which weighs in at around 5,000 pounds, it is no wonder that very few automobile occupants walk away from such accidents unscathed.
