Obtaining Compensation After a Truck Accident

Port St. Lucie Truck Accident Lawyers

Though laws are in place to regulate the trucking industry and improve safety for both drivers and other motorists, negligence is still a factor, especially in an industry where success is measured by how fast loads can be transported. Given their size, commercial trucks and big rigs are likely to cause serious injury or even death when they are involved in accidents.

Victims of such accidents need to know that there is someone on their side willing to fight to ensure the protection of their rights. At the David Golden, P.A., based in Stuart, Florida, an experienced truck and tractor-trailer accident attorney serving Martin County, Indian River County, and communities throughout the Treasure Coast can review your case and help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

Pursuing Compensation

When personal injury protection is not enough to fully compensate a victim for injuries and losses resulting from a truck or tractor-trailer accident, he or she may be eligible to pursue compensation from the liable party. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident, responsibility may be attributed to the driver of the truck, the trucking company, contractors, maintenance and repair companies, and clients handling the loading and off-loading of cargo.

After an accident, insurance representatives working on behalf of the trucking company may attempt to minimize the seriousness of the accident in order to reduce or nullify the value of a claim. For this reason, it is vital that victims consult with a Port St. Lucie truck collision attorney before speaking with or accepting a settlement from an insurance company.
