Truck accidents can result in catastrophic injuries and extreme financial strife. In the state of Florida, about 32,000 truck accidents happen a year and 140,000 people are seriously injured. Injuries can be especially severe when a truck accident involves semis or larger trucks. There are many reasons a truck accident can occur, most of which relate to a driver error. Some of the causes include fatigue, driving under the influence, speed, tailgating, and more.
If you’ve been injured in a truck accident because of a truck driver’s negligence, you shouldn’t be the one fronting the cost of medical bills when the accident wasn’t your fault. The Florida Law Group’s truck accident injury attorneys have years of experience helping truck accident victims recover damages for the injuries they’ve suffered. Call today to schedule a free consultation and learn more about your next steps.
Truck Accident Injuries Can Be Expensive
The costs for treating your injuries from a truck accident can add up quickly. You might find yourself facing thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, which you likely don’t have readily available in your pocket! Depending on how serious your injuries are, you may have to pay for things like:
- Hospital stay
- Physical therapy
- Dental reconstruction
- CT scans
- Copays & deductibles
- Doctor follow-ups and more.
It’s possible that in order to recover fully from your accident, you have to take days, weeks, or even a few months off work. If your injuries are extreme, you may not be able to go back to work. This can make financial matters even more difficult as your stream of income might be affected if you can’t collect disability or run out of PTO. You might also suffer mentally as truck accidents can be a traumatic event to go through and mental health therapy isn’t something most insurances cover.
You Have The Right To Take Action!
It’s important you know that you have the right to take legal action and seek maximum compensation from the at-fault truck driver’s insurance company. Unfortunately, their insurance company, and even your own, is usually looking to save a buck or two, so they’ll likely try to deny or devalue your injury claims and offer you a settlement that is nowhere near the value of your injuries. That’s why it is crucial that you work with a skilled personal injury attorney who can help you get the compensation you deserve. Having one of our truck accident injury attorneys on your side will not only force the insurance companies to take you more seriously, but will give you more negotiation power in reaching the maximum settlement amount!
Our truck accident attorneys are familiar with Florida’s accident injury laws, the local courts, and the ways that insurance companies will use to get around paying you. You can trust that we’ll work diligently to help you get the money you deserve!
At The Florida Law Group, our truck accident injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. This means that there is no money coming straight from your pocket! When we win your case, your legal fees are repaid directly from your settlement amount. If we don’t win, you don’t owe us anything!
