Have you been injured in a truck accident that you believe was caused by a defective roadway? A truck accident attorney experienced in road defect cases can help you understand your legal rights and options in order to obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
The Cochran Firm South Florida has the manpower and resources necessary to fight difficult truck accident cases and win. We have people on our staff who are adept at reconstructing the accident scene, and our attorneys will gather evidence to clearly demonstrate the cause of your accident.

Every defective roadway case is unique, and the location of the accident will determine who is responsible for maintaining safe road conditions. If your accident occurred on a highway, you may file a claim against the Florida Department of Transportation. If your accident occurred on a city- or county-maintained roadway, then you may file a claim against the local government responsible for road maintenance. In some cases, you may be able to bring a claim against more than one party. This is common when the accident was partially caused by the truck driver and a defective road condition.
