Ocala Tractor Trailer Accident Attorneys
Help for Ocala Truck Accident Victims
More than 630 crashes involving commercial vehicles occur each year in Marion County (Florida Integrated Reporting System, 2018). These crashes, which are usually more serious than automobile accidents, affect the lives of hundreds of people in and around Ocala, who suffer from accident-related injuries.
If you or a family member has been the victim of a truck accident injury, you could require expensive medical treatment and care. Paying for these expenses can be a financial burden that you shouldn’t have to bear.

Liability in Florida Truck Accident Cases
Trucking companies and their insurance companies investigate crashes involving commercial vehicles very soon after they occur. They look for ways to minimize payments to injured accident victims and may try to get them to agree to their terms.
If you’ve been injured in a crash involving a commercial tractor trailer, it is, therefore, important to contact an experienced truck accident attorney before you agree to anything. The knowledgeable attorneys of the Davila Law Group want to help you. We will help determine liability for your truck accident and will always put your best interests first.
To help you obtain the maximum compensation for your injury, pain, and suffering, we will collect specific evidence surrounding your case, develop and file a strong claim, and put our negotiating and litigation skills to work for you.
Florida Truck Accident Lawsuits
Florida truck accident lawsuits fall into three different categories, depending on the cause of the accident and the injuries sustained. The most common type is based on a claim of negligence. 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.
Product liability suits are a second type of possible truck accident lawsuit. These suits are filed when a design or manufacturing flaw in the truck or one of its parts contributed to the accident. If it can be shown that the vehicle or part was unreasonably dangerous, the truck and/or parts manufacturer can be held liable for negligence in manufacturing.
The third type of possible truck accident lawsuit is a wrongful death suit. Family members whose loved one has died due to truck crash injuries 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.
Recovering Damages in Truck Accident Cases
If you or a family member has been injured in a truck accident, you may be able to recover financial, non-financial, and in some cases, punitive damages. Financial damages are awarded to help accident victims and their families pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and diminished earning capacity. Non-financial damages are awarded to compensate for physical and emotional pain related to the truck accident injuries. Punitive damages are only awarded to punish someone who intentionally caused the truck accident injuries.
