therefore, you need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to handle
your case. The head attorney of the firm, Dan Cytryn has handled numerous
truck accident cases, including one involving a stalled flat bed tractor
trailer which was ultimately brought to the Florida Supreme Court.
Our client was a passenger in a car traveling on the Palmetto Expressway
when around 4:00 am, the vehicle driver crashed into a stalled unlit tractor
trailer, instantly killing both our client and the driver. About an hour
before the collision, another driver almost crashed into the stalled tractor
trailer but managed to slam on his brakes and switch lanes, avoiding a
collision. The individual called 911 and was transferred to a Florida
Department of Highway Patrol dispatcher, which told him they would send
a unit to the scene. However, the dispatcher failed to enter the call
for assignment, and as a result, no one was sent to the scene. Watch
Dan Cytryn’s oral argument in front of the Florida Supreme Court for this case.
