The serious consequences of an accident involving a semi-truck

On Behalf of | Jun 8, 2017 | blog, Firm News | 0 comments

Trucks are critical to the American economy, transporting goods and services across the country. While the men and women employed in this industry are typically highly trained and safe drivers, mistakes can happen, and as a result, serious accidents occur. In many cases, accidents involving semi trucks are more serious than those involving only passenger vehicles.

Florida truck accidents often result in serious consequences, but they can also be extremely complicated to investigate, and claims resulting from truck accidents are hard to prove. If you suffered injuries in a truck accident, you need a legal professional on your side, advocating for your interests and fighting for your recovery. 

How can I prove that I have a case?

Whether it was due to a speeding trucker or improperly loaded cargo, it is very possible that your accident was not your fault. It can be hard to know exactly what caused your truck accident, and proving that you suffered due to actions of another person or party is no easy task. In order to be successful in any effort to secure personal injury compensation, your case must prove the following:

  • The truck driver, trucking company or other responsible party owed a certain duty to exercise a reasonable level of care.
  • The responsible party failed in this duty to provide a reasonable standard of care.
  • This failure to provide a reasonable standard of care is the cause of injury and bodily harm to the plaintiff.

Your claim must verify that you suffered as a direct result of the actions of the truck driver, the negligence of the trucking company or the actions of another party that may be responsible. A thorough investigation can determine exactly what caused your accident, identify all liable parties and outline the most appropriate course of action for you.

Holding liable parties accountable for your suffering

A collision involving a truck is an extremely traumatic type of motor vehicle accident. The damage can be severe, and the physical pain and suffering can be extensive. The aftermath is overwhelming, but you do not have to deal with it on your own.

With the help of an experienced truck accident attorney, you can fight for the full and fair recovery you deserve. From dealing with insurance matters to taking on intimidating trucking companies, your legal ally will advocate for the best outcome for you and pursue what you need for medical care and other accident-related losses.
