Broward County Truck Accident Lawyer | Here to Help You
When it comes to truck accidents, truck companies will often hire aggressive legal representation who will combat your claim at every turn. This is why you must do the same–speak with a seasoned Broward County auto accident lawyer who can present all the evidence needed to effectively and swiftly prove your claim.
Truck Accidents in Florida
Truck accidents can happen for several different reasons, though in most cases, they are the result of truck driver negligence. Some of the most common types of truck driver negligence that we’ve seen in the past are as follows:
- Distracted driving
- Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while fatigued (as truck drivers are often required to into late hours of the night)
- Not allowing sufficient time to brake
- Failing to check blind spots
- Making turns too wide
That being said, other parties may also be held responsible for truck accidents, including truck employers, truck company employees, or even truck part manufacturers/designers. No matter the cause of your accident, if you were injured due to no fault of your own, you will most likely qualify for financial compensation in a personal injury claim.
To recover compensation in a personal injury claim, you and your Broward County truck accident lawyer will have to gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of a truck driver’s negligence. This can include pictures of the accident/its aftermath, witness statements, police reports, medical documents pertaining to your injuries, and more. Ensure you file your claim within the state’s statute of limitations, which is two years.
As long as you can satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, you should recover financial compensation to help you with the economic and non-economic damages you’ve sustained as a result of your accident. These can include lost past and future wages, the cost of medical bills, pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
