Jacksonville Truck Accident Lawyers
Traffic accidents involving big trucks take the lives of more than 3,000 people every year and cause thousands of serious injuries.
Occupants of other vehicles in crashes with tractor-trailers and other big trucks are likely to suffer the most traumatic injuries because of the disparity between the weight of 18-wheelers and much lighter passenger vehicles.
There are two keys to a full and fair legal recovery from a trucking accident:
- Knowledgeable and aggressive pursuit of the truth about tired truckers and the companies that require or condone unsafe driving.
- Willingness and ability to present the case to a jury when the insurance company will not pay a full and fair settlement.
The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic prides itself on expending the time and resources to discover the hidden truth and to present it to juries whenever necessary.

Experience with Jacksonville Tractor Trailer Accidents
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, large trucks, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles were involved in over 11,000 crashes in 2011, with 196 fatalities. Many of those accidents involved drowsy truck drivers who had been behind the wheel too many hours, trucks that hadn’t been properly serviced and trucking companies that turned a blind eye to unsafe driving.
Holding truckers and trucking companies accountable for the harm they cause requires persistent, aggressive lawyers who know what evidence to search out. We aggressively pursue the truth by analyzing trucking company maintenance records, checking driver logs and cell phone records, examining personnel records and reconstructing accidents.
Our detailed investigations often reveal outrageous gaps in required maintenance of big trucks, violations in federal limits on hours of driving and negligent hiring of drivers with checkered accident records.
Many truck accident cases settle before trial. But we have the courtroom-tested litigation experience to take a truck accident case to a jury when the insurer for the trucking company refuses to pay a full and fair settlement to our clients.
Whether in the courtroom or at the negotiating table, we are committed to the highest quality of service for clients.
