Our lawyers know how to investigate the facts necessary to prove liability against the multiple defendants that can often be held accountable in a truck accident case, including the truck’s owner, the trailer’s owner, the maintenance contractor, the driver, or the driver’s employer.
After a serious truck accident, you may be entitled to both economic and non-economic damages, as well as punitive damages in rare cases. Economic damages include compensation for current and future medical costs, lost wages, loss of your earning capacity, and compensation for ongoing treatment for permanent disability or impairment. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, may be awarded for emotional and physical pain and suffering, distress, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and the inability to enjoy your life as you once did.
Punitive damages, while limited in by the State of Florida and therefore difficult to obtain, are awarded to punish serious acts of negligence and wrongdoing. These damages can be awarded when there wasn’t significant economic loss, but the driver or trucking company should still be held accountable for their negligent actions.
After an accident, it is essential you contact law enforcement as soon as possible. They can begin their investigation and create a report about the conditions of the accident. This report will be used in your claim for damages. If it is safe to do so, also document the scene yourself, including taking pictures of the damage to your vehicle; debris left on the road; and weather, traffic, and road conditions. Write everything down, as memories may fade, especially if you have sustained a head injury.
You should also seek medical attention, even if you do not feel hurt. Never assume you are simply okay because you do not immediately feel the effects of an accident, as often symptoms may appear days later.
You should also collect the contact information of any witnesses, as their statements can strengthen your claim for compensation. Once you have this information, contact your insurance company to report your accident, but do not admit fault. You also shouldn’t accept any offers without first speaking to your attorney, as insurance companies will often try to settle quickly, and for the lowest amount possible. Our firm can review the circumstance of your accident and fight for the full and fair compensation you are entitled to.
