We Are Leaders. Managing partner Michael Leizerman wrote the West Thompson multi-volume legal treatise on truck accident law in 2004. This reference book for truck accident lawyers includes the federal regulations that are the same in each state for interstate tractor-trailer crashes, as well as state law that differs in areas, like whether there are monetary limits or “caps” in the lawsuit, whether you can receive punitive damages, and the varying technical requirements for filing a lawsuit.

Florida

Few states in the country have as high a truck accident rate as does Florida. Every year, roughly 4,000 fatal and non-fatal truck accidents occur on Florida's highways, leaving thousands of innocent motorists injured or dead. Truck traffic is dense on cross-state routes such as Interstate 4 and Interstate 10, as well as on north-south routes such as Interstate 75 and Interstate 95. And the state's numerous large cities from Tampa to Miami, Tallahassee to the Jacksonville attract thousands of commercial vehicles every day. If an accident with a truck, bus or other commercial vehicle has left you or a family member suffering from a life-altering injury, add Michael to your team of legal professionals and benefit from having an attorney who has the passion and knowledge to fight for the highest settlement amount.
