Ft. Myers Truck Accident Attorney Lawyers

Help For Fort Myers Truck Accidents

call today: 239-332-0770

Every day, countless semi trucks are on the roads in and around Ft Myers. If you're involved in a Ft Myers truck accident, it can leave you seriously injured. The larger size and weight of a commercial truck means that it can do significant damage to a passenger car and those inside it. As such, your physical recovery following a truck crash could be significant. And along with the process of healing will come the financial impact an accident can have on you and your life.

If your accident was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another, our legal team will take the fight to the trucking company and get you what you're owed.

Do You Have The Right To Sue?


Under Florida law, those injured in an accident have the right to file a lawsuit for compensation if they can show that their injuries occurred as a result of the reckless or negligent actions of someone else.

In a Ft Myers truck accident case, this can include things that wouldn't normally be considered in a basic passenger car accident. Some examples of negligent or reckless behavior in these cases include:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs
  • Driving longer than legally allowed by government regulations
  • Hauling loads larger than legally allowed
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to obey traffic laws

What Are You Owed?


Several factors have an influence on what is a fair settlement. Your attorney will review your case and best determine what factors played a role in its occurrence, then take the steps needed to show that you deserve compensation. If so, you could receive damages based on a wide range of different factors such as:

  • Medical bills
  • Future potential medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering compensation
  • And more

Standing Up To The Trucking Company 
While the truck driver can certainly be held liable for your injuries if they acted negligently or recklessly, it's important to remember that in a Ft Myers truck accident, it is possible that you'll be able to seek compensation from the trucking company the driver works for as well.

This is because trucking companies must adhere to very strict government guidelines as to what their drivers can and can't do. If they force drivers to break these laws, the trucking company could be held responsible. Examples of this include:

  • Forcing drivers to drive more than legally allowed in a day or week
  • Setting up deadlines that force drivers to speed or drive unsafely
  • Using incentives to encourage drivers to drive unsafely, speeding or driving too long
  • Failure to maintain their vehicles properly
  • Forcing truckers to haul loads that are larger than legally allowed
  • And more

While this could mean that you can potentially receive a much higher than average settlement, it also means that you could encounter significant opposition from the trucking company. They won't want to pay out anything, and their deep pockets and resources mean that they'll often be more than able to bully victims and try to force them to accept settlements that are far less than what they're owed.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
