Do I Need a Truck Accident Lawyer?

If you have been involved in a truck accident, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney to ensure that your rights are protected. An experienced lawyer can review the details of your auto insurance policy to make sure that you receive the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled. If your injuries are permanent and life-altering or an accident resulted in the wrongful death of a loved one, an attorney can represent you in a lawsuit against the liable party or parties.

What Am I Entitled to If I Am in a Truck Accident?

By law, Florida drivers are required to carry a minimum amount of personal injury protection (PIP) to cover losses and expenses - up to policy limits - resulting from a motor vehicle accident. This protection compensates the insured for medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage. If an accident results in permanent injury or death, victims and their families may be able to seek additional compensation directly from the liable party or parties, including payment for pain and suffering, mental anguish, funeral expenses, loss of support, and loss of quality of life. You should consult with an experienced attorney after any accident to ensure that your rights are protected and your best interests are served.

What Are the Common Causes of Truck Accidents?

Though truck drivers and trucking companies are governed by state and federal regulations implemented to safeguard those in the industry as well as other motorists, these regulations are not always doggedly adhered to. In many cases, truck accidents are the result of driver fatigue as operators push themselves to work long hours without taking the rest breaks they are required to have in order to haul more and in a shorter amount of time. Some companies employ drivers that are not properly trained to handle these large vehicles safely; still other drivers, without regular testing, continue to operate their vehicles under the influence of drugs and alcohol, putting their lives and the lives of others at great risk.

Can I Afford a Truck Accident Attorney?

This means that attorney's fees and costs are often only applicable when you obtain a favorable verdict or settlement, at which point, a previously agreed-upon percentage of the award you receive will be used to cover the cost of attorney representation.
