Trucking Accidents

St. Petersburg Semi Truck Accident Injury Lawyer

Physics and momentum can play a catastrophic role in causing truck accident injuries, as the size and weight of huge 18-wheeler trucks, as well as the load coming loose upon impact, often creates a deadly combination for car drivers and their passengers.

At the personal injury law firm of At Karikas & Kasaris, P.A., in St. Petersburg, Florida, we represent clients who are injured or killed in commercial trucking accidents. We also represent the families of the injured or deceased as well. Since 1997, we, attorneys Dean Karikas and Daniel Kasaris, have been applying nearly fifty years of combined personal injury experience to helping those injured by truck accidents.

Truck accident personal injury claims often stem from:

  • Drunk truck drivers, or DWI accidents

  • Sudden stops
  • Ride-unders
  • Side swipes
