What Our 18-Wheeler Accident Attorneys Can Do for You
What does hiring an 18-wheeler truck accident lawyer mean? With other attorneys, it can mean dealing with automated systems, getting inconsistent support, and having your case relegated to a pile.
With Ged Lawyers, it means you have an entire team of people working for you. It means you get regular check-ins, not just about what we’re doing but also how you’re doing. It means working to keep your case moving by keeping the other parties engaged and negotiating.
Our Delray Beach personal injury lawyers tailor their strategies to what is in your best interest. We understand that no two truck accident cases are ever the same. That’s why we provide personalized legal care.
Start Your Case Without Any Upfront Fees
At Ged Lawyers, we’re all about removing obstacles to getting compensation, and that includes obstacles you set up yourself. We can also handle your case on a contingency fee basis.
This means we will not charge you upfront fees or hourly rates. Instead, we simply take a percentage of your potential outcome.
What Our Delray Beach Truck Lawyers Do with Your Case
Our commercial truck accident lawyers:
- Get the medical records, police reports, photos, video, witness testimony, and trucking logs to reconstruct what happened to you.
- Talk to experts in whatever specialized area comes up in your case, like the inner workings of the truck that hit you or the effect of your injuries on your life.
- File your insurance claim through your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage or through the other party’s insurer, depending on your injuries.
- Go over any settlement offers, provide you with the time to review them, explain terms, and negotiate for the best possible result.
- File a personal injury lawsuit if we can’t settle a claim, the other party was uninsured or underinsured, or we feel it’s the best step forward.
We tailor our services from there. For instance, if the trucker who hit you was drunk at the time, we can work to obtain their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) test results. Evidence, negotiation tactics, and court strategy are all flexible and based on the needs of your case.
We Hold Everyone Accountable
Your 18-wheeler accident may have been solely caused by a negligent driver. However, we always verify if that’s the only liable party. Many truckers are employed by larger companies that share liability with them. Our Delray Beach truck accident lawyers also entertain the possibility of additional negligence from third parties.
That could mean our list of suspects includes:
- Truck drivers
- Trucking companies
- Cargo companies
- Independent contractors
- Construction companies
- Product manufacturers
We are prepared to represent a case against each party. Truck accident damages are often high since trucks are generally 20 to 30 times the weight of passenger vehicles, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). We can pursue several paths to compensate you for the damage done by colliding with such a vehicle.
What Our Truck Injury Attorneys Do to Seek Damages in Delray Beach
Since even the FMCSA admits that trucks can do more severe damage in crashes, victims can qualify for extensive compensation to match the consequences. Some of the forms that could take:
- Past and future medical care
- Therapy and rehabilitation costs
- Mental health care
- Past and future loss of income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Disfigurement or loss of limb
- Diminished quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Out-of-pocket expenses
In Florida, severe injuries can qualify you to seek more damages through a lawsuit. Rest assured, we’ll have that possibility in mind while we assess your case.
We Seek Damages for Grieving Families
If you are the surviving family member of someone who lost their life in an 18-wheeler crash, we can represent your case as well. Damages can help alleviate the financial and personal burdens of the loss of your loved one. You can contact our wrongful death lawyers to learn more about pursuing a case on someone’s behalf.
What Our Delray Beach Truck Accident Lawyers Do to Protect Your Rights
First, we can protect you from accidentally making mistakes that could cost you, from saying too much to making filing errors. With Ged Lawyers, you get another set of eyes on your paperwork, another set of hands performing tasks, another set of ears listening for opportunities, and another mouth to advocate for you.
We Do All the Talking
Whether it’s nosy adjusters or helpful eyewitnesses, you just may not have the wavelength to talk to them. They can go through us instead.
We Decipher the Legalese
Insurance companies, trucking companies, and other potentially liable parties can be well-versed in the language of liability. We won’t let them weaponize it. Everything is translated into everyday language.
We Recognize How Long You Have for a Suit
In Florida, you usually have two years to file for personal injury or wrongful death. We say “usually” because that’s not always the case, so talk to us about the details of your situation. We can use that information to determine when to file a suit if necessary.
