How Can a Truck Accident Attorney Help After an Accident?
If another party is responsible for your injuries or a loved one’s wrongful death, we can hold them responsible for your loss and seek damages on your behalf. While Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits will cover a small fraction of the injury costs after trucking accidents, your bills will most likely exceed your coverage amount. A lawyer can assist in negotiating with the insurance company on your behalf and file a lawsuit for any additional damages, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Legal fees
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We can investigate the accident and find out the cause of the trucking accident, including if the driver was at fault, even if the trucking company or driver claims otherwise, and assist in getting your life back on track. Our attorneys know how crucial it is to begin investigating what happened right away. This includes gathering accident reports, driving logs, maintenance records and any other documents needed to strengthen your case. Truckers and trucking companies must abide by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) and, if they did not, they could he held responsible for any injuries or accidents.
Truck Accident Settlements and Verdicts
Some of the truck crash claims we have handled include:
- A settlement of approximately $1 million for a retiree who sustained a fractured vertebra because of a collision with a semi rig
- A multi-million dollar settlement for a wife and mother of three children who was severely injured when her Ford Explorer rolled over, ejecting her from the vehicle and causing a spinal cord injury, due to her losing control of her car to avoid debris in the road that had fallen from a tractor trailer
- A multi-million dollar verdict awarded by a Jacksonville jury for our client injured in a tractor-trailer accident
- A settlement received prior to filing a lawsuit for a motor vehicle negligence claim for injuries due to a dump truck striking a Jeep Wrangler head-on on a two lane road in Lake County, Florida
With persistence and dedication to obtaining justice for those who need it most, our legal team has been successful in proving our client was not at fault for the collision, even when the insurance company of the truck driver tries to claim otherwise. Our clients gain the damages they need to pay for past and future recoveries for medical care and loss of wages in addition to pain and suffering.
