Boca Raton Truck Accident Attorney


Boca Raton Truck Accident Lawyers

Of all the inconveniences life throws your way, auto accidents are one of the worst. Accidents involving trucks are frequently the worse life events that occur to families in large part because they often leave victims with catastrophic injuries from which there’s no full recovery. If you have been seriously injured in a truck crash or you’ve lost a loved one to one of these terrible accidents, the Boca Raton personal injury lawyers at Kanner & Pintaluga are here for you. We aggressively pursue the compensation our clients deserve after all types of accidents, including truck crashes.  

Common Types of Truck Accidents in Florida

Rear-End Collisions

A rear end collision occurs when a distracted truck driver slams into the vehicle directly in front of it due to distraction, fatigue, mechanical failure or a variety of other potential causes. The significant weight and size of trucks can cause severe damage to commuter vehicles and serious injuries.


These trailer-specific accidents occur when the trailer of the truck swings out into a 90-degree angle. This can happen due to improper braking, equipment failure or poor road conditions. In bad weather, truck drivers should take extra care to prevent jackknifing. There are very few scenarios in which a jackknifing truck driver isn’t completely at fault or at a minimum partially at fault for jackknifing crashes.


High-speed turns or trying to correct a trailer skid can result in a truck rolling over, causing severe damage and potential injuries to drivers and passengers in vehicles around the truck.

Blind Spot Accidents

Trucks have large blind spots on both sides, the rear and the front of the vehicle. If a car is in one of these blind spots when the truck driver decides to change lanes, it can result in a collision.

Wide-Turn Accidents

Trucks need more room to make turns, especially right turns. If a vehicle is on the side the truck is turning towards, it can get hit.

Tire Blowouts

The weight of trucks puts an enormous amount of pressure on their tires, which can lead to blowouts if the tires are not properly maintained. Damaged or weakened tires are particularly at risk for blowouts. Trucking companies, tire shops and tire manufacturers may share fault in crashes caused by tire blowouts.

Underride Accidents

These occur when a smaller vehicle slides under the rear or side of a semi-truck. These can be especially dangerous and often result in severe injuries and fatalities.

Truck Accidents and Catastrophic Injuries

Given the massive size and weight of commercial trucks, drivers and passengers in commuter vehicles often suffer catastrophic injuries. Catastrophic injuries stand apart from other types of personal injuries due to their severity and the extensive, long-term effects they have on the injured individual’s life.

While a minor injury might cause temporary discomfort or require a short healing period that keeps you out of work, a catastrophic injury often results in permanent disability, significantly diminishing the victim’s quality of life and earnings capacity. It also usually requires more expensive, invasive and ongoing medical care.

Common catastrophic injuries in truck accidents include:

Identifying Potential Defendants

The truck driver is not the only potential defendant in a truck accident injury case. Multiple parties often share culpability. These parties can include the trucking company that employs the driver, the owner of the truck, the company responsible for truck maintenance and the freight shipper. Each of these entities can contribute to a truck accident in different ways – improper maintenance, inadequate driver training, violation of weight regulations and forcing drivers to exceed safe driving hours, to name just a few potentially negligent actions.

A skilled Boca Raton lawyer experienced in truck accident cases can unravel the web of potential defendants and determine the extent of their liability. Our attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga conduct thorough investigations, review trucking company records, driver logs, maintenance records and more.

A lawyer can also work with accident reconstruction experts and medical professionals to build a comprehensive understanding of the accident and its impact on your life. This detailed approach ensures maximum compensation is sought from all responsible parties, covering medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain, suffering and other relevant damages.
