The Florida Law Group’s Elite Orlando Truck Injury Lawyers Work To Recover The Damages You Deserve.
If you have been severely injured in a truck accident in or near Orlando, you’re not alone. Central Florida is a center for trucking and logistics because it connects other areas of the state; because I-4 runs through Orlando, and because Orlando is one of the most populated and visited cities in Florida, a high number of truck accidents occur every year. Between 2019 and 2020, roads saw a 4% increase in large trucks involved in fatal accidents, and injuries are up 96% since 2010. Commercial trucks are many times larger and heavier than other passenger vehicles on the road, which means that any collision is likely to result in catastrophic injuries, most likely to the other party involved. The costs of a single negligent action can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical treatment or completely change your life forever. When the accident was the fault of the truck driver or the truck company, you shouldn’t have to bear the financial burden of your injuries alone! Our Orlando truck injury lawyers can advocate for you to get full monetary compensation.
Depending on what party can be held liable for the crash and what the extent of your injuries are, you may be able to seek damages for things like medical bills, for lost wages, and for the pain and suffering you endured as a result of the crash. However, there are many laws in place to protect the trucking industry. Trucking companies and insurance companies will rarely be willing to acknowledge fault and pay out claims without a fight. Negotiating on your own will be exhausting and likely fruitless; you need a group of aggressive, local auto accident attorneys who can recover damages while you focus on recovering! At The Florida Law Group, we have over 100 years of combined experience on our team, and we have won over $1 billion dollars for injured accident victims in Florida since 1984. Several prestigious legal organizations have recognized us for our ability to secure verdicts for our clients, including the Best Lawyers in America, the Trial Lawyer Board of Regents, the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, the National Trial Lawyers Top 100, Florida Super Lawyers, Avvo, and more. Call today to schedule a FREE consultation with our elite Orlando truck injury lawyers and learn how much you could get paid in a settlement. You don’t pay our legal fees until we win your case!
Common Reasons Truck Accidents Occur
Truck crashes are often, though not always, the fault of the truck driver. Some of the most common reasons for a truck collision include:
- Distracted, drowsy, or drunk driving – truck drivers have deadlines to meet and drive for long stretches of time to meet those deadlines. They may doze off at the wheel, get bored and use their phones, or try to multitask in order to save time. Some drivers may drink alcohol to stay awake or out of boredom.
- Poor truck maintenance – It takes trucks much longer to brake because they are massive vehicles. Both truck drivers and trucking companies are required to properly maintain their vehicle, but if they cut corners or don’t perform safety checks, the truck may not function properly, resulting in a crash.
- Overloaded trucks – There are laws regarding how much weight trucks can transport, but sometimes companies or truckers will ignore these laws to move more cargo in less time. If the truck driver loses control, this can be dangerous.
Regardless of what the cause of the accident was, our Orlando truck injury lawyers can hold the guilty party accountable and get closure for you and your family.
Our Orlando Truck Injury Lawyers May Be Able To Recover Significant Compensation On Your Behalf.
How much you can win in a settlement depends on many different factors – how severe your injuries are, whether or not you shared fault for the accident, how the accident impacted your ability to work, how much evidence exists regarding the accident and your injuries, what medical treatment you have received, and more. However, before assuming anything about how much your case is worth, you should always speak to an attorney who can investigate the crash and accurately value your injuries. Insurance companies may have misled you about how much you can recover, because paying out higher settlements hurts their bottom line. You may be able to recover damages in the following categories:
- medical costs (for items such as imaging tests, surgeries, hospitalization, physical therapy, copays, deductibles, and more)
- lost wages (for time you spent not working or without overtime pay due to your injuries)
- future lost wages (if you will no longer be able to career or if the accident has left you permanently disabled
- pain and suffering (for the trauma you endured as a result of the crash)
- punitive damages (if the court wants to make an example of the defendant’s actions, which may apply if the truck company broke a law or the trucker was intoxicated)
- and more!
In one case, we recovered $900,000 for a victim of a truck accident. We are dedicated to winning for you!
