Personal Injury

The attorneys at Colson Hicks Eidson are pioneers in the area of catastrophic injury litigation. We fight to obtain compensation for injured victims.

Miami Truck Accident Lawyer Representing Nationwide Accident Cases

When truck drivers and trucking companies act with negligence, commercial trucks can cause serious personal injuries and wrongful deaths. Our truck accident lawyers, with an office in Miami, have received national recognition for their work with tractor trailer law. This includes filing legal action on behalf of truck accident victims and their families both locally and internationally.

Each auto accident attorney at our law firm commits to holding negligent truck drivers and dangerous trucking companies responsible for the harm they inflict on innocent people.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration estimated that driver fatigue and the use of drugs while operating a semi truck are factors in roughly 40 percent of all truck wrecks. However, there are also many other factors to explore when a commercial truck collides with another vehicle.

At Colson Hicks Eidson, we have the investigative resources and experience necessary to deeply examine the circumstances of car truck accidents, resources gained through the many 18 wheeler accident cases we have handled that have improved nationwide trucking safety for all.

Auto Accident Attorneys with Successful Truck Accident Settlements and Verdicts

Our experienced truck accident lawyers have found in their case investigations that many truck accidents can result from defective tires that cause tire failures or tire blowouts, faulty brakes and other mechanical defective auto part malfunctions. In these cases, the trucking companies may still be responsible for the 18 wheeler accident in addition to the manufacturer or the mechanic shop that installed the faulty parts.

Tractor trailer accident litigation is a complex area of law. This is especially true when the truck driver, company, manufacturer and repair shop all try to blame each other for the truck crash. However, our team of truck auto accident attorneys, professional consultants and reconstructionists can and will figure out what really happened in your truck accident.

We have an established history of gaining clients significant truck accident settlements and verdicts for wrecks involving negligent truck drivers and defective products. Our work in accident and product liability law includes:

  • Miami auto accident attorney and Deborah J. Gander also secured $11 million in policy limits after a gas tanker traveling at excessive speeds caused the wrongful death of a married couple. This tanker was carrying 9,000 gallons of fuel on highway 595 in Broward County. It lost control, rolled onto its side and combusted. This gas tanker accident caused the incineration of the husband and wife driving in a nearby vehicle, leaving their two, college-aged children without parents.
  • Truck accident lawyers Lewis S. “Mike” Eidson and Julie Braman Kane continue to pursue litigation to address safety issues in aging tires and other vehicle defects involving commercial trucks.
