Miami Truck Accident Lawyer

Have you been injured in a truck accident in Miami? Following a crash with a commercial truck, there is a different procedure and steps to take than if you were in a collision with a non-commercial vehicle. Miami and the surrounding areas have heavy semi-truck and tractor-trailer traffic along Interstates 95 and 195, and the risk of a crash with these large vehicles can be increased along these major highways. Following a car accident, your life can be affected in many ways, both personally and financially. When you are represented by a truck accident lawyer in Miami courts, you can be confident that your legal representation will be working for your best interests, so that you can regain your quality of life and resume your lifestyle as best as possible.

Is an Accident With a Semi Different Than an Auto Accident?

If you have been in a crash involving a truck, you may already be aware of some of the ways it is very different from a crash with an automobile. Below are a few of the main things that create a different set of concerns, and how an attorney experienced with truck crash law can help you navigate this process.

Commercial Insurance Policies

Commercial vehicles have a much different type of insurance policy than a passenger vehicle, given the nature of their business, the amount of travel, the goods they transport, and more. CDL licenses are separate from a standard driver’s license in the United States, and are regulated by increased standards and requirements. The insurance policies for commercial trucks can be over a million dollars, and dealing with a commercial insurance provider can be very complicated as they work to protect their investment.

Dealing with a commercial insurance agent can be far more complicated than a standard agent, and they will use tactics that go beyond the scope of a passenger insurance policy to keep from making a full payment. Understanding that the insurance provider will take a more aggressive stance following a commercial accident is very important, and the help of an experienced lawyer will be a major help.

Greater Damages

A collision with a semi-truck can be significantly more destructive than a collision with another passenger vehicle. It is important to work with an attorney to quantify the extent of the damage when building a case for the amount you will be requesting from the insurance company, for both property damages and personal injuries sustained.

Commercial Regulatory Bodies

Truck drivers answer to additional regulatory bodies when they are issued a CDL license and commercial insurance. There are many more factors that are considered when working through a commercial accident because of the different requirements from a standard driver. These additional regulations create more complications during a claim, but can also create different things that you may be entitled to compensation for. Your attorney will be able to explore all aspects of truck accident law to identify every possible avenue to increase the amount you are entitled to.

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

There are many different things that could cause an accident with a truck, but we have listed some of the more common reasons below. If you have been in an accident with a truck, contact us today to request a consultation from one of our network lawyers and to discuss the factors that led to your truck accident.

Improperly Loaded Trucks

Trucks must be loaded in a very specific way to distribute the weight of their cargo evenly and safely. If you believe that your accident was a result of improper cargo loading, this is an important issue to discuss with your attorney.

Speeding

If speed was a factor in your collision with a commercial truck, this is another important thing to speak to your attorney about. Commercial drivers are expected to adhere to local speed laws, and sometimes have their own speed limits set based on the surrounding traffic and the nature of the roads they are on.

Tire Blowout

Tire blowouts are unfortunately common with commercial vehicles, and can lead to accidents in a variety of ways. When a tire blows, debris is sent into the road and sometimes into the path of oncoming traffic. If your accident was a result of a tire blowout, this creates a different set of factors for your attorney to consider.

Overworked Commercial Drivers

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has strict limits on the amount of hours that a commercial driver can work during a day or week to avoid accidents resulting from fatigued drivers. Drivers are required to keep logs of their schedules, and will be referenced while working on your claim.

Calculating a Commercial Truck Insurance Settlement

As you can see by this abbreviated list of things that make a collision with a commercial truck different from a crash with a passenger vehicle, there will also be additional things that go into your claim against their commercial insurance company. Below are some things an attorney will work with you on to determine your rightful claim and the amount of compensation you’re entitled to:

Property Damage

Your vehicle may have had much worse damage to it because of the size of a truck, and the amount you are owed for these damages will be factored into your final compensation.

Injury and Medical Bills

An experienced truck accident attorney in Miami will work with you to quantify a dollar amount for your personal injury that goes beyond the cost of your medical bills.

Loss of Income

If you have sustained injuries that limit your ability to work, your attorney will factor in any future loss of income as well as the time you have missed during your recovery.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering are not as simple as the previously-mentioned factors for your settlement, as they are not purely economic. Your attorney will work with you to determine a fair and just amount to include in your settlement to account for the suffering you have endured following your accident.

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!
