Put Our Florida 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Lawyer to Work Immediately
Many truck accident cases resolve with an insurance settlement. However, if we can’t settle with the at-fault driver and their insurer, you might have to go to court for a final resolution to your case. To ensure you can do so if needed, we file your lawsuit in time to comply with Florida’s statute of limitations. In general, Florida Statutes § 95.11 entitles you to:
- Two years from the accident date to file your personal injury lawsuit.
- Two years from the day your loved one passed away to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
If the filing deadline expires, you could have no legal avenue to compel the at-fault party to compensate you. However, when our truck accident attorney handles your case, we make sure to file your case on time.
The Role of Negligence in Your Florida Truck Accident Case
To pursue the at-fault party in your case, you must provide proof of their negligence. The elements of negligence we establish on your behalf include a duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. These elements will identify the at-fault party or parties, which can include the following:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The truck’s manufacturer
- A parts manufacturer
- The truck maintenance company
- The cargo loading facility
One or more of these parties could bear financial responsibility for your accident. Thus, our legal team will pursue compensation from any liable parties and fight for the compensation you need and deserve.
Our Truck Accident Team Will Build a Compelling Evidence File
Since truck accident cases can involve multiple negligent parties, the evidence we collect on your behalf is crucial. It will tell the story of the collision and accurately assign negligence and financial liability. Your case file may include the following:
- Accident report
- Accident scene photos
- Accident reconstruction report
- Trucker logbooks
- Driver history
- Driver training records
- Cargo loading records
- Truck maintenance reports
We also collect your medical records and bills, employment and salary history records, and vehicle repair and replacement estimates to document the monetary value of your case. In addition to compiling this evidence, we also use your case file to fight for a fair and appropriate settlement, thus avoiding a lengthy trial.
