Were You Injured in a Truck Accident? You Are Not Alone.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Florida saw 351 fatal crashes involving large trucks in 2020 alone.

Even when a truck crash does not cause a fatality, the ensuing property damage and personal injuries are often severe. 18-wheelers and other commercial trucks are bigger, longer, and heavier than cars, which means their potential for damage should anything go wrong is far greater.

Unfortunately, seeking compensation after a truck accident is more challenging as well. Trucking companies have a lot of resources at their disposal to fight claims and conceal evidence. For your claim to stand a chance, you need to partner with an experienced truck accident lawyer in Lake Clarke Shores, FL.

What Compensation Can You Recover After a Truck Accident?

Compensation varies from case to case. In general, you can seek the following compensation — also known as — damages as a truck accident victim:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost income/wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

If you have lost a close family member in a truck crash, you may also be able to seek reimbursement for:

  • Final medical bills
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of financial and emotional support

Identifying all potentially recoverable damages in a truck accident case can be challenging. Our personal injury attorney can help you identify all your losses and calculate the full value of your claim.

How We Can Help

Acting immediately after your accident is critical to maximizing your chances of recovery. Our legal team can start building your claim before the trucking company has had the chance to sweep the accident scene and conceal evidence. We will begin gathering evidence immediately, including by:

  • Inspecting the truck inside and out
  • Collecting accident scene photos and videos
  • Reviewing GPS data, logbooks, and black box data
  • Checking cell phone records
  • Interviewing witnesses and taking statements
  • Commissioning reports from accident reconstruction experts

We will also take over all communications with the insurance company and will work hard to negotiate an adequate settlement. If the insurer makes a lowball offer, we are not afraid to take your case to court.
