Being involved in a truck accident can result in significant injuries and losses due to the size and weight of large trucks. In big vehicle accidents, it is imperative you seek the support you need to fight for the justice you deserve. You shouldn’t have to pay if you have suffered damages due to someone else’s actions.
If you or a loved one have sustained injuries and losses from a Deerfield Beach truck accident, a lawyer from our team can support you through the legal process and seek the justice you deserve. During a free consultation, we can discuss the details of your case and how our Deerfield Beach personal injury lawyers can help.
A Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help With Your Case
Being involved in an accident can be complicated, but a truck accident can require knowledge of the law and specific skills to prepare your case. A personal injury lawyer from GED Lawyers can provide what you need in an overwhelming time like this. We understand what you are going through, which is why we can handle the legal aspects of your case so you can focus on recovery and being with your family.
We Evaluate Your Case
During our free consultation meeting, we will determine if you have a valid case and your options on how to move forward legally. When you hire a lawyer from our firm, you have an attorney committed to serving you and can provide evening and weekend appointments when needed. We can even come to you if you are unable to travel.
We take on your case on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay us nothing if we don’t win your case. We are dedicated to providing exceptional service to you and your family.
We Investigate Your Claim
Proving negligence is vital to your case, so hiring a lawyer as quickly after the accident as possible is important. We need to collect as much evidence as possible. Some examples include the following:
- Any statements from witnesses or other drivers involved
- Police accident report
- Any photographs of the accident scene
- Medical records stating injuries you sustained as a result of the accident
Proving liability can be complex, but through our investigation, we will determine who is liable for the accident and gather sufficient evidence for your claim.
We Determine Your Losses
After a truck accident, it is more than likely you have experienced losses. Some examples of recoverable compensation include:
- Lost income or reduced earning capacity
- Medical care, current and future cost of medical treatments needed due to your injuries from the accident
- Pain and suffering, physical, mental, and emotionally
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages
When we review your case, we can determine what damages you qualify for. Every accident has specific circumstances that make recoverable compensation amounts different from one another. There is no way to estimate your losses based on another accident.
We Have Your Best Interests In Mind
Going through the legal process can be overwhelming, especially when there are deadlines to meet and multiple parties to communicate with. We can communicate with other parties on your behalf with your best interests in mind. We are here to support you and ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
We will also complete and file any legal paperwork related to your case. According to the statute of limitations, you have two years to file a lawsuit from the date of the accident, or you can miss the opportunity to receive compensation. Speaking with a Deerfield Beach truck accident lawyer as soon after your accident as possible helps to meet the timelines for your case.
Determining Who Is Responsible For Your Truck Accident Injuries
Accidents involving trucks can be more complicated than a typical car accident. In a truck accident, there are many different people or companies you could file a claim against, such as the:
- truck driver
- truck driver’s employer
- owner of the truck
- truck maintenance company
- cargo owner and loader
Gathering sufficient evidence is essential to determine who is liable for your injuries. When we investigate your case, we will request information specific to trucking accidents.
Specific Evidence to Gather for Trucking Accidents
Some key components of evidence that can help prove liability in a truck accident are:
- High-tech devices. There is typically a type of device or system to record information on how the truck is operated. Information such as route, speed, vehicle miles, hours of service, and even when the driver uses the breaks can be recorded.
- Driving log. Reviewing the driver’s log can show whether or not federal and state regulations were followed, such as hours of service. Hours of service refers to the maximum amount of time drivers are permitted to be on duty and specifies the number and length of rest periods. This regulation is set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).
- Information from government agencies. Laws require commercial trucks to be inspected by a certified truck inspector. A report should be filed stating the condition of important mechanical parts.
We will determine who is liable for your accident based on the facts of your case and thoroughly investigate your case, gathering the evidence needed to prove who is responsible for the injuries you sustained.
