Truck Accident Attorney in Fort Lauderdale

Truck Accidents in Florida

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, there was approximately 475,000 police-reported truck accidents in 2016. 104,000 auto collisions resulted in injury and 3,864 were lethal. 22% of all fatal truck collisions were single-vehicle crashes, which include accidents with pedestrians, bicyclist, and non-motorized vehicles. The majority (61%) of all fatal auto collisions involved large trucks occur in rural areas. However, 27% of these accidents happen on interstate highways and 15% on rural interstate highways.

While at a glance these statistics may not seem like much, they emphasize the point that a life-threatening truck accident can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Truck collisions often result in severe or mortal injuries including traumatic brain injury, internal bleeding, spinal cord injury and paralysis, broken bones, lacerations, and disfigurement.

If you or a loved one sustained injury from a truck accident in Fort Lauderdale, you might be entitled to financial compensation. Hiring an attorney to represent you during settlement negotiations can help you recover the most money from your injury claim. Call 1-800-INJURED today to get connected with a truck accident attorney in Fort Lauderdale.

Compensation After a Truck Accident

Anyone involved in a car accident with a commercial vehicle understands the importance of monetary relief after a crash. These large trucks are often several times the size of cars driving around them and can weigh as much as 20-30 passenger vehicles. These trucks are enormous which translates into severe damage when they get into collisions with other cars.  Even a relatively “minor” crash can leave victims with harsh injuries that require costly treatment and care. Many patients often need ongoing medical care and never return to their jobs.

The aftermath of a truck accident can be devastating. Fortunately, accident victims are often entitled to substantial financial compensation. The payouts in truck accident cases are typically exponentially higher than in a regular car crash. Some of the damages your claim could recover include payment for medical expenses, therapy, rehabilitation, and the cost of home modifications to accommodate a disability. You might also be able to obtain compensation for current and future lost wages, the replacement of your vehicle, and intangible damages such as your pain and suffering.

Filing an Insurance Claim

Since Florida is a no-fault state, after an auto accident, drivers involved must file a claim with their auto insurance to obtain coverage for some of their accident losses. By law, you should have purchased a minimum of $10K in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. These PIP benefits are intended to cover up to 80% of medical bills and 60% of lost wages.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

However, given the normal damage incurred in a trucking accident, a settlement with your insurance provider might not cover your total losses. If your medical bills and lost wages exceed the $10K PIP limit or you have sustained a permanent injury in your crash, Florida code allows you to sue the liable party for additional compensation.

Benefits of Hiring an Attorney

When a driver is negligent and causes an accident, they are liable for the damages sustained by innocent parties involved in the crash. However, when a truck driver causes an accident, the vicarious liability expands the field of potentially liable parties. This doctrine holds the trucking company accountable for its employee’s actions as long as the driver performed within the scope of their job duties.

It may also be possible that multiple parties (perhaps a truck maintenance company, parts manufacturer, truck manufacturer, or tire company) are liable for your accident damages.  Hiring an attorney can help you establish liability, seek compensation from that party’s insurance policy, and recover the most money for your injuries.

I must say that working with 1800-Injured was seamless during a stressful period. Both myself and my wife got into auto accidents within two months of each other and the service received ion both cases from this company is seciond to none. We felt completely at ease from the initial phone call, as they were recommended by someone else who too had a pleasant experience and at every stage in the process we were kept informed, the explanation of the process was thorough and the follow up was an indication that we were in great hands. Thank you for making what could have been a very unpleasant and stressful experience one that was seamless and stress free.

I was recently involved in a automotive accident. A car crashed into my car from behind and I was pushed forward and I hit the car in front of me. At that time I really didn't know what to do or who to call. I remember seeing an Ad for 1 800 Injured on my Instagram page. I called them and they were very informative and handled everything from A to Z. They set me up with a great lawyer and with the right doctors.

Hace unos cuantos meses tuve un accidente con mi novia en el highway, inmediatamente despues del accidente me comunique con 1-800 injured ya que un amigo me lo habia mencionado. Desde que hice la llamada estuvieron a mi disposicion 100%. Me mandaron a la clinica el mismo dia y me ofrecieron un driver de mi casa a la clinica ya que no podia manejar en esas circustancias. No solo eso, tambien me ofrecieron un exelente abogado que llego a mi casa el mismo dia del accidente. No puedo quejarme de su servicio, recibi un excelente tratamiento en la clinica durante 3 meses y en todas mis visitas el driver me llevaba y me traia a mi casa. Definitivamente ofrecen un excelente servicio y se preocupan por sus clientes. Si llegan a tener un accidente automovilistico no duden en contactar a 1-800 Injured!
