Nearly everything you buy in a store or order online is delivered by a truck. With so many trucks on the road, accidents are inevitable. Accidents do not just happen. Every truck accident can be traced to one or more causes, from weather conditions to the training of the driver.
At Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A., our attorneys work with investigators and truck accident experts to determine the cause of the accidents that injured our clients. We pursue financial compensation from the responsible parties.
