Were you or a loved one injured in a recent truck accident? If you were, or if a loved one was fatally injured, we can help. Our 18-wheeler truck accident lawyer will investigate your accident, identify all at-fault parties, and negotiate with their insurance companies. Moreover, we will review your case at no cost and explore every option for monetary recovery.
The at-fault party’s negligence could entitle you to file a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit. The GED Lawyers team will fight to obtain the financial compensation that ensures you can receive the medical care you need for optimal physical recovery. We also request compensation for your lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
How We Build a Compelling Case for Compensation
You could attempt to resolve your truck accident case on your own. However, our legal guidance and support mean you can leave the legalities and hard work of preparing your case to us. When our personal injury lawyer represents you, we will:
- Identify and interview accident witnesses.
- Canvass for security and surveillance video.
- Obtain your official truck accident report.
- Complete and submit insurance claim forms.
- Compile supporting evidence and documentation.
- Handle all communication with insurers and defense counsel.
- Review all relevant insurance policies.
We also handle the negotiation process from start to finish, fielding offers and weighing their pros and cons. If a reasonable settlement offer is not forthcoming, we will not hesitate to take your case to court and keep fighting for the compensation you deserve.
Our law firm also represents you on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will pay nothing upfront or out of pocket. It also means we only get paid if we recover compensation for you.
Potentially Negligent Parties Our 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney Will Pursue
According to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) data, there were 415,000 truck accidents in 2020, resulting in 101,000 injuries and 4,444 fatalities. FMCSA research cites drug and alcohol use, distracted driving, speeding, and other driver actions as potential causes.
Our investigation will document the driver’s actions and any other causes and contributing factors. Liable parties could include the following:
- The truck driver
- Their employer
- The truck’s manufacturer
- Truck parts manufacturers
- The cargo loader
- Repair and maintenance facility
When we handle your case, we will show how one or more of these parties bears responsibility for your accident. On your own, it can be challenging to apportion financial liability accurately. However, our team’s familiarity with state and local law means we can handle all legal matters between you and one or more liable parties.
Evidence We Collect to Substantiate Your Truck Accident Case
Most personal injury cases settle out of court based on the weight of the evidence and its indications of negligence and liability. To prove the four elements of negligence—duty, breach, causation, damages—that entitle you to compensation, we collect evidence that includes the following:
- Accident report
- Accident scene photos
- Accident reconstruction
- Truck driver log
- Truck maintenance records
- Driver training records
- Eyewitness statements
- Expert witness statements
We also collect evidence supporting the monetary value assigned to your case. This proof can include employment records, medical records and bills, and your written prognosis. So, leave the daunting task of evidence collection to us so you can focus on your recovery.

Compensation Our 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Lawyer Fights to Recover for You
An 18-wheeler truck accident can leave you with substantial post-accident expenses and losses. At GED Lawyers, we thoroughly assess the damages you can recover from the negligent party or parties.
Economic recoverable damages include the following:
- Past, current, and future medical bills
- Past, present, and future lost income
- Treatment-related travel expenses
- Property damage or destruction
- Diminished property value
You can document these damages with bills, estimates, and receipts. However, you are also entitled to recover noneconomic damages, which can be challenging to substantiate due to their intangible nature. Noneconomic recoverable damages can include the following:
- Physical disability
- Lasting disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We also support families who lost a loved one in a truck accident. Wrongful death damages we recover for surviving families include the costs you incur making final arrangements for your loved one. It also includes your family’s loss of your loved one’s financial and familial contributions.
How Statute of Limitations Affects Your Truck Accident Case
The statute of limitations is a crucial part of your case. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3), you generally have four years from the accident date to file your personal injury lawsuit. You also generally have two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit. If you don’t file your lawsuit on time:
- You could be barred from filing it.
- The court will dismiss it regardless of your evidence.
If either happens, you might not have further recourse to compel the at-fault party to compensate you. So, the sooner you get our legal team involved in your case, the better. Early intervention means we have plenty of time to investigate your accident and file your potential lawsuit before the deadline.
