Injured in an Accident with a Tractor-Trailer or Semi-Truck? Call Our Firm!
Any large truck can cause catastrophic damage if it is involved in a traffic collision. A semi-truck or tanker truck can literally crush another vehicle, and a small car can actually have its top sheared off by the trailer of a big rig. With serious accidents of this kind, victims need equally serious legal counsel. That comes in the form of the Miami-Dade County truck accident lawyers at Morales & Cerino.
At Morales & Cerino, our trial lawyers have over a century of combined legal experience. We use this experience, and also our resources, to investigate and litigate personal injury and wrongful death claims for truck accidents across South Florida. We handle these cases on a contingent fee basis, which means you pay no up-front costs and no attorney fees at all unless we are successful in recovering a settlement or award on your behalf.

Discovering the Underlying Cause of a Truck Accident
As with any type of personal injury action, fault must be proven if you are to recover financial compensation from the party that caused your injuries. We work with accident reconstruction specialists and experts in engineering and other key fields to discover the underlying cause of each client’s truck accident claim, so we can prove fault and recover fair compensation.
The following are examples of potential causes of truck accidents:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Overloaded truck
- Improperly secured truck cargo
- Imbalanced truck load
- Defective or poorly maintained truck parts
- Fatigued driving (hours-of-service violations)
- Inexperienced truck operator
- Unsafe lane changes/merging
- Failure to check blind spots
