If you or someone you love was injured in a truck accident, you could be entitled to financial compensation. When you turn to our Sarasota truck accident lawyer for legal support, we work hard to fight for the compensation you are entitled to receive. We make sure the costs of your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more are attributed to the at-fault party.
At GED Lawyers, we believe the clients we represent deserve time to focus on their physical recovery. While you do, we get to work building a strong case file for you. It will identify the at-fault party, prove their negligence, and document the value of your injuries and the expenses that stem from them. We also make sure your potential lawsuit is filed in time to comply with the state’s filing deadline.
Our Truck Accident Attorney Will Fight for Your Financial Recovery in Sarasota
Building a case for financial recovery is a detailed and painstaking process. You do not have to build a strong case file on your own when we represent you. The benefits of hiring our truck accident team include putting the power of our entire team to work on your case.
On your behalf, we will:
- Conduct a thorough investigation
- Obtain your truck accident report
- Locate and interview witnesses
- Complete and submit claim forms
- Negotiate with the insurance company
We stop at nothing to build a strong case that compels the at-fault party to compensate you. If your case cannot be resolved with a settlement, we file all necessary court documents and prepare your evidence for the trial process.
We Will Identify the At-Fault Party
Fault in a truck accident is assigned to the person or entity whose negligence caused the collision. Negligence is assigned to the party who:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Breached their duty
- Caused your injuries
- Caused your financial damages
In truck accident cases, the at-fault party could be the truck driver, the company he drives for, or the company that manufactured the truck or its components. Our investigation will reveal the at-fault party or parties and ensure we pursue compensation from the appropriate insurance company.
We Will Build a Strong Evidence File
The evidence file we compile for you will tell the story of your accident. It will allow our team and the at-fault party’s representatives to understand the cause and resulting costs of the collision.
Evidence in your file will include:
- Medical records
- Written prognosis
- Income records
- Truck accident report
- Photos and videos
- Witness statements
Leave evidence collection to our team. We will ensure your case file is complete and your damages are accurately assessed before entering the negotiation phase of your case.

Our Truck Accident Attorney Will Assess Your Recoverable Damages
Accurately calculating truck accident damages can be complex. Finalizing your costs or accepting a settlement too soon can mean you do not know or receive the actual value of your case. It takes time to obtain all the records, receipts, bills, and documents that prove the value of your injuries and related expenses.
Damages You May Be Entitled To
According to Florida Statutes § 768.81, the damages we recover for you can include:
- Medical care throughout your recovery
- Hourly, business, and other income losses
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- In-home medical and domestic support
If someone you love was fatally injured in a truck accident in Sarasota County, we help your family recover a range of wrongful death damages. These include, but are not limited to, the costs of making your loved one’s final arrangements and the value of their lost domestic and financial contributions to your family.
At GED Lawyers, our Sarasota truck accident lawyer works hard to determine the monetary value of your damages. We ensure your case includes all recoverable damages and is not undervalued or underpaid.
We Ensure Florida’s Statute of Limitations does Not Expire
The statute of limitations in your truck accident case can be complicated. The statute of limitations defines how long you have to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. In general:
- You have up to four years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)
- You have up to two years from the date of a truck accident fatality to file your wrongful death lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)
While the statute of limitations must be met, doing so on your own can be difficult because many factors can create exceptions to the filing deadline, according to Florida Statutes § 95.051.
When we represent you, we handle all the details important to your case, including the timely filing of your lawsuit. We work hard to settle your case out of court but will go to court without hesitation to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
