Over a decade of experience with commercial and trucking accidents
Truck collisions are different than standard motor vehicle accidents. As former corporate counsel for the commercial trucking industry, The Fantauzzi Law Firm knows the nuances of such crashes. As a highly regulated industry, commercial carriers are subject to numerous federal safety rules and codes as well as business practice regulations. This specialized nature of trucking accident claims also applies to ordinary cars or vans that are business-owned or operated while conducting business. Having represented clients in Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater and the surrounding counties for more than ten years, The Fantauzzi Law Firm understands the rules and regulations imposed upon the owners and operators of commercial vehicles. Factors such as appropriate business practice and operation, maintenance policies, safety protocols, and hiring, retention, and training procedures for drivers and employees are just some of the nuances that affect the value of an accident claim. The Fantauzzi Law Firm uses its knowledge of this area of the law to navigate the litigation landmines™ of a truck crash case.
How are commercial accidents different?
Commercial accidents also differ from standard automobile collisions due to the shear forces involved. Considering the simple physics equation for force (F=MA), the physical impact of an object is equal to its mass times its speed. Since trucks often weigh five to ten times the weight of a typical passenger vehicle, the force they exert in a collision is five to ten times greater than that in a typical motor vehicle accident. Therefore, it is understandable that collisions with commercial vehicles often result in serious and life-altering injuries such as traumatic brain damage.
