Have you or a loved one been injured in a Florida trucking accident that was not your fault? It’s important that you have a personal injury lawyer working on your case as soon as possible in order to ensure that your rights to compensation are actively protected and that your interests are pursued.
Who is at fault?
There are many parties that may be at fault for causing your injury. This can include the driver, trucking company, loading company, truck manufacturers or even agencies responsible for the design and maintenance of the road on which the accident occurred. As determining fault is a fairly complicated process that may involve one or more of these parties, it’s vital that you have an attorney on your side who knows how to find evidence that will help build a strong case against all responsible parties – helping to ensure that you get the result you deserve.
Why you need to speak to a truck accident lawyer today
After a truck accident has occurred, every minute counts. Many trucking companies have their own response teams who will start working immediately on building their defense against your case, so it is important that you have a dedicated team to act for your interests. At The Law Offices of Gloria Seidule , we will start working on your case immediately – evaluating your case for a possible claim and then gathering evidence that will support your claim, including witness testimony, medical records and physical evidence from the scene.
What compensation can your case result in?
Depending on the individual nature of your case, your lawyer can pursue economic and non-economic damages as well as punitive damages, should they apply. Economic damages include:
- Current and future medical costs from injuries relating to the accident
- Lost wages
- Future loss of wages
- Rehabilitation treatment costs
- Transportation costs
- Damage to property
Non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish/psychological suffering
Punitive damages are only applicable in situations where the at-fault party’s actions can be determined as willful or intentional and are applied as a means of punishment in order to help prevent a similar situation occurring in the future.
Your lawyer plays a pivotal role in assessing, recording and pursuing the appropriate amount of compensation for your case, so it is vital that they are involved in your case as soon as possible in order to ensure that you are properly advised and guided through this difficult time.
