Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Tallahassee
Attorney Bill Cotterall grew up in the trucking industry. Tractor trailers, semi-trucks and 18-wheelers are an important part of our national economy. They transport everything from food and clothing to construction equipment and gasoline. Because of this, there are hundreds of thousands of tractor trailers on our roads at any given time. Although the drivers of these tractor trailers are professional drivers with special training and license requirements, they are often forced to comply with demanding delivery schedules and deal with over fatigue, boredom and distractions. The rigs themselves can weigh in excess of 80,000 lbs. and may be loaded beyond their legal limit, may be improperly loaded to make the trailer dangerously unbalanced, or may not be properly maintained. This turns the rig into an 80,000 lb. out of control missile speeding down our road, often with catastrophic consequences. Accidents involving tractor trailers tend to be the most deadly auto accidents on our highways, often involving several vehicles and multiple fatalities.
Having grown up in the trucking industry, and having worked for a trucking company in the past, Bill Cotterall understands the trucking industry as well as the equipment. He brings his personal experience to the courtroom when representing the victims of tractor trailer accidents. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a truck accident in the Tallahassee area or Florida, you may be facing the aftermath of the death of a loved one, physical pain, emotional upset, lost time at work, hospital and doctor bills, rehabilitation, a damaged or totaled car, and other stressful consequences.
