Being involved in an accident with a truck is a scary prospect. Truck accident scenes are often the sites of twisted, mangled, and crushed metal. Imagine what the impact between a truck and another vehicle does to fragile human bodies. Unfortunately, that is what truck accident victims, law enforcement officers, emergency responders, medical teams, and truck accident lawyers face on a routine basis.
As West Palm Beach truck accident attorneys at Steinger, Greene & Feiner, we have dealt with the devastation of such accidents for more than a decade. The injury and wrongful death claims we’ve handled on behalf of clients who have been injured or who have lost a loved one in South Florida truck accidents has only reinforced our determination to apply all of our considerable knowledge, skills, and resources to every new case we take on.
According to the Florida Traffic Crash Statistics report, published by the Governor’s Office, more than 343,000 traffic accidents occurred on the state’s roads and highways in 2010. Approximately 66,000 of these accidents involved some kind of truck, whether light, heavy, or a commercial truck like an 18-wheeler. Accidents involving trucks are among the most devastating types of traffic accidents with an extremely high injury or death potential for the occupants of smaller passenger vehicles. Heavy trucks traveling at highway speeds pack an enormous wallop in a collision and may add to the destruction with oil and other hazardous materials spills which can further imperil accident victims and others nearby.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
My experience with Steinger, Greene & Feiner was a very positive experience. They addressed my needs right away. I didn’t expect to get a lawyer as quickly as I did. I got a phone call the next day and it was Steve Sheinfeld. He was very professional and courteous. I signed up because I had confidence right away… Steve was willing to walk through this journey with me, where I could walk away feeling a lot better.
