Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Representing Clients Injured in Serious Trucking Accidents

Trucks are likely to destroy smaller vehicles in a collision due to the immense size and speed difference. Far too often, a truck will suffer only cosmetic damages while a car will be demolished — likely resulting in catastrophic injuries for all occupants. If you or a loved one was injured in a truck collision, it is crucial that you speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. In regards to trucking cases, it is important to act fast, obtaining consulting experts, engineers, and performing through inspections of the involved vehicles to secure evidence in the case before it disappears.

At Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, we have the resources and access to consultants and experts necessary to represent injured clients or those who have been injured of have lost a loved one in a truck accident. With offices in Bradenton, Venice, Lakewood Ranch, and Sarasota, we provide exceptional client service through both negotiation with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier as well as courtroom litigation.

There Are Several Types Of Trucks

While people might at first only consider accidents caused by tractor-trailers, our attorneys are prepared to represent those in cases involving:

  • 18-wheelers
  • Construction vehicles
  • Delivery trucks
  • Box vans
  • Trash collectors
  • Dump trucks

Importantly the weight of the truck can oftentimes governs the extent of safety standards which apply both with regards to the truck itself as well as the driver of a commercial vehicle. Additional factors include whether the truck was used for interstate or intrastate commerce and what types of goods the truck was transporting at the time of the accident.  Additionally, the property damage caused by such vehicles are more likely to cause serious and potentially even fatal injuries. As such, the medical issues in the case will also be more complex and likely will require the consultation of specific medical specialties not commonly affiliated with vehicular claims.  

Importantly, trucking companies will act quickly to have lawyers on the scene to protect their drivers and the company. You need to respond with the same tenacity and experience on your side. When you need to file a personal injury claim, schedule a free consultation at either of our area offices.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I was always able to get ahold of him via the phone and emails. I never felt rushed in our meetings and conversations. He was professional and courteous. I am very satisfied how quickly I received my settlement.

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
