Why You Need a Truck Injury Attorney After an Accident

If you or a loved one has been seriously hurt in a truck accident, you may already have insurance adjusters circling to try to prey on you when you are most vulnerable. If an insurance company offers you a truck accident settlement, you should not speak with them, and certainly do not sign anything until you have talked to an experienced truck accident lawyer.

Truck accident litigation is uniquely complicated and requires a knowledgeable truck accident attorney to:

Analyze whether the driver complied with all state and federal motor carrier safety regulations. Florida law requires that truck drivers receive basic training and limit their consecutive hours on the road. Unfortunately, due to the demands of the industry, many drivers cut corners and employers fail to comply with the rules. A truck accident attorney can review truck log books, on-board black boxes, GPS data, cellphone data, compliance with licensing and certification regulations, and maintenance records for a particular vehicle.

Identify all individuals and corporations that might be responsible for the accident. This could include the driver’s employer, the truck’s owner, the truck driver, the company that loaded the cargo, and the company that performed maintenance on the truck.

Determine a lawsuit’s appropriate jurisdiction. This can be especially complicated when a crash involves out-of-state trucking companies.

Manage communication with all the insurance companies involved. This can be a huge relief for accident victims, as crashes involving a commercial vehicle can require negotiations with layers of insurance providers.

Build a strong case through evidence and expert testimony. Our truck accident lawyers gather crash reports, witness statements, physical evidence from the scene, and medical records to prove the cause of the crash and the extent of your injuries. We also rely on our network of medical professionals, accident reconstruction experts, tractor-trailer experts, private investigators, and long-term care planners to craft a solid claim.

An insurance adjuster may try to tell you that you can settle this without a truck accident attorney. However, you should always remember that the insurance companies have armies of lawyers working for them, all with the goal of paying you as little as possible.

An experienced truck accident lawyer will look beyond the obvious damages and help you really calculate how this accident will affect your life into the future. Pursuing full and fair compensation requires in-depth knowledge of how these types of cases work and how a victim’s life can be forever changed.

  • Who Can Be Held Responsible for a Truck Accident?

    Truck Accident in FloridaAfter a serious truck accident, people may automatically assume that the truck’s driver is the one to blame. But truck accidents aren’t that simple. It takes a village to keep a commercial truck on the road, and there are a number of parties that could be held responsible for your accident, including:

    • The transport company
    • The owner(s) of the tractor and the trailer
    • The shipper of the cargo
    • The owner of the cargo
    • The company that was responsible for the truck’s maintenance
    • The maker of a defective part in the truck
    • The truck driver

    To make matters more complicated, having so many parties involved means there are many different insurance companies to contend with. At Rosen & Ohr, P.A., our experienced truck accident lawyers in Hollywood, Florida, understand the complexities of the industry and are committed to conducting a thorough investigation to prove exactly who was at fault for your accident.

  • Types of Compensation We Fight for After a Truck Accident

    In the aftermath of a serious truck accident, you and your family will face obvious damages such as hospital bills, the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle, and missed paychecks. In addition, your injuries will take a toll on your life that may seem difficult to measure. For example, how can you put a dollar figure on the times when you miss out on the things you normally enjoy in life? What about putting a price on the emotional and psychological pain and suffering you’ve been through due to the accident?

    Our dedicated truck accident lawyers in Hollywood, Florida, will thoroughly assess the damages you have suffered to ensure we demand the maximum compensation you deserve. This may include:

    • Payment for past and future medical bills, including surgery, rehabilitative services, medication, and assistive devices
    • Compensation for lost wages and reduced earning capacity for the future
    • Payment to repair or replace your vehicle
    • Compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured due to the accident
    • Damages to punish the negligent party for extreme misconduct
    • Compensation for your inability to live the normal life you used to have

    Many cases end with a truck accident settlement offer from the at-fault party, rather than going all the way through to a jury verdict. However, our dedicated truck accident lawyers are always prepared to argue your case at trial if the at-fault party refuses to make a fair settlement offer.
