We can put our legal experience and litigation skills to work for you to help you get compensated fairly for your expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
Liability in Florida Truck Accident Cases
Soon after an accident involving a commercial vehicle, the trucking company and its insurance company usually start investigating the crash. They try to limit the amount of payment to the injured accident victims, so talking with an experienced truck accident attorney before agreeing to their offer is in your best interest.
Davila Law Group attorneys can help determine liability for your truck accident and put your best interests first. They will gather specific evidence surrounding your case, file a strong claim, and put their negotiating and courtroom expertise to work for you. They will work diligently to help you obtain fair compensation from the responsible party or parties.
Florida Truck Accident Lawsuits
There are three different kinds of Florida truck accident lawsuits, depending on the cause of the accident and the injuries sustained. Lawsuits that claim negligence are the most common. The negligence can be on the driver’s part, on the owner/manager of the trucking company’s part, on the truck owner’s part, and on the insurance company’s part.
A second type of possible truck accident lawsuit is a product liability suit. Product liability is used when a defect in the truck or one of its parts contributed to the accident. In these cases, we sue the truck and/or parts manufacturer for negligence in manufacturing and show that the vehicle or part was unreasonably dangerous.
The third type of possible truck accident lawsuit is a wrongful death suit. When the victim of a truck crash dies as a result of accident injuries, his/her family can possibly sue for compensation for their losses. An experienced wrongful death attorney can help family members recover financial, non-financial, and, in some cases, punitive damages for the loss of their loved one.
Damages in Florida Tractor Trailer Accident Cases
Victims injured in tractor trailer accidents can be eligible to recover financial, non-financial, and in specific cases, punitive damages. The type of damages you recover depends of the extent of injuries from the accident, the treatment and care required, your ability to work, and other factors.
Financial damages are awarded to compensate truck accident victims and their families for their monetary losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity. Non-financial damages are intended to compensate the victims and their families for physical and emotional pain related to the truck accident injuries. Punitive damages are supposed to punish someone who intentionally caused the truck accident injuries.
