Truck Accidents Lawyers in Jacksonville
Fighting for the Medical Care & Compensation You Need in Duval and St. Johns Counties
With over 30 years of experience (including formerly working on behalf of an insurance company), Attorney Jim Glober has a complex understanding of truck accident litigation. The Glober + Glober Attorneys, P.A. team recognizes that the commercial truck company will send its lawyers and insurance adjusters to the scene of a crash almost immediately in an attempt to mitigate the damaging evidence and control the accident scene.
Therefore, we move quickly to investigate the accident, recover evidence, and prove the negligence that contributed to or caused the accident:
- Was the truck driver speeding?
- Was the truck driver fatigued from driving too many hours?
- Were negligent hiring practices used by the trucking company?
- Were driver logs and maintenance records accurately maintained?
- Did defective truck parts lead to a tire blowout?
- Did an unbalanced load cause the semi to roll over?
- Did an abrupt halt cause other cars to crash?
Our firm handles personal injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of people affected by tragic truck accidents. With the force of the truck accident, it is common for people who survive the crash to suffer severe injuries, such as head and spinal cord injuries. Recognizing the emotional, financial, and physical strain these injuries can cause, we help truck accident victims and their families pursue full, rightful compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.

There are now over two million trucks on the road every day in the U.S. alone, and you can bet that each of those drivers is on a very tight deadline.
The most common reasons for trucking accidents in America are:
- Drivers are often rushed as they try to meet tight delivery schedules
- Over-stressed drivers are too distracted to pay attention to other vehicles
- Tired drivers find it difficult to focus and make simple mistakes that have disastrous results
- Mechanical failures, defective truck components, and overloaded trucks may often be the cause of accidents
In short, trucking accidents are caused by the same mistakes that cause car accidents: Reckless driving, speeding, and mechanical failures.
