Truck Accidents

Northwest Florida 18-Wheeler Accident Attorneys

Proving your right to compensation for the full measure of your losses in a truck accident case demands a high level of skill on the part of your legal team. In a semicrash, the injuries will often be disabling or fatal, and your claims will be opposed by seasoned insurance defense lawyers working to minimize liability under multimillion-dollar policies.

In the most serious motor vehicle accident cases where catastrophic damages are beyond dispute, prompt settlement for the policy limits is a likely outcome. In a truck accident case, however, you can expect to be held to the detailed and specific proof of the full range of your injuries and losses, no matter how extensive they may be.

Call the trial lawyers of Bryant & Higby, Chtd., in Panama City at 850-387-0910 for a free consultation about your right to compensation following a serious accident involving a semitractor-trailer combination or other commercial vehicle. Our AV Preeminent* litigation firm is known regionally and nationally for our ability to achieve outstanding results in difficult injury cases, and we have the experience and resources necessary to investigate, develop and present the evidence necessary to protect your interest in full compensation.

Because the insurance policies that cover a commercial vehicle owner's or operator's liability have such high limits, the disputed issues in a truck accident case often involve issues of negligence and damages that simply do not very often arise in an auto accident case. For example, car accidents seldom involve the need to close the gap between a $500,000 settlement offer and a $2 million damages demand, because in most cases, the insurance coverage simply isn't available to cover losses on this scale when private passenger vehicles are involved.

Developing Settlement Leverage Through Focused Trial Preparation

Our law firm has the ability to determine the causes of a truck accident, the liability of one or several defendants for federal safety violations, and the amount necessary to cover current and projected medical and rehabilitative needs. When necessary, we work with experts to support the details of a complex theory of liability or damages claim, and our willingness to take a case to trial can go far toward protecting your interest in a fair settlement.

Bryant & Higby, Chtd., handles truck accident litigation on a contingent fee basis, which means that we only collect an attorney's fee as a percentage of the compensation we recover for our client. For additional information about our experience with these challenging cases, call our office in Panama City for a free consultation at 850-387-0910. You can also reach us by email.
