Truck Accidents Are More Complex Than Car Wrecks

A truck accident case presents more legal challenges than a “regular” car crash. Due to the sheer size of 18-wheelers and other commercial vehicles, the extent of the damage — both in terms of property damage and personal injuries — tends to be much greater.

The more extensive the damage, the larger the compensation. Yet, trucking and insurance companies are often reluctant to make such large payouts and will do everything they can to minimize your compensation.

Identifying the responsible party in a truck crash can be tricky as well. Any of the following stakeholders may be potentially liable:

  • The truck driver
  • The trucking company
  • The company that loaded the truck
  • The owner of the cargo
  • The mechanic who serviced the truck
  • The truck or parts manufacturer

These are just some of the reasons you should not attempt to handle your claim without professional help. An experienced truck accident lawyer in Palm Springs, FL, can walk you through the process and maximize your chances of success.

What Compensation Can You Seek in Truck Accidents?

If you were injured in a truck accident, you might be able to pursue compensation (“damages”) for:

  • Medical bills, both past and future
  • Lost income, including past income and any reduction in your future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, including physical pain as well as mental anguish
  • Property damage, such as the cost to repair or replace your car or a broken laptop

This list is not exhaustive. Our truck accident attorney can identify all your potentially recoverable losses and calculate the full value of your claim.

What To Do After a Truck Crash

Taking the right steps in the immediate aftermath of a truck accident is essential to maximizing your compensation.

  • Call 911. Do not leave the accident scene. Call 911 and talk to the law enforcement officers when they arrive. Answer all their questions and request a copy of the police report — it will be a valuable piece of evidence when you submit your insurance claim later.
  • Seek immediate medical attention. If you do not seek immediate medical help and document your injuries, the insurer or the trucking company may try to argue that you are faking or exaggerating your injuries.
  • Hire a lawyer. The sooner your lawyer starts building your claim, the better. If you wait, witnesses’ memories will fade, and critical evidence may be destroyed or go missing.
