Making a Claim for a Trucking Crash
Motor vehicle accidents that involve trucks can be especially complicated. Trucking crashes often involve extensive damage and significant personal injuries. Because trucking accidents frequently occur while the trucker is on the job, additional issues involving liability of the employer also arise. Because of the complexities involved with a trucking crash, you should contact trucking accident lawyers in Palm Beach Garden FL if you have been involved in an accident.
What legal remedies may be available in a trucking crash?
If the truck driver was negligent and caused you injuries, then you may have a claim for damages. If the crash occurred while the trucker was in the course of employment, then you may have a claim against both the truck driver and their employer. In addition, if the truck driver is hauling a trailer, the owner of the trailer may also be liable.
If liability can be established, then the trucker, trucking company, and/or trailer owner may be required to compensate you for your injuries and damages. The amount that you can expect depends upon many different factors, so you should contact our trucking accident lawyers in Palm Beach Garden FL to learn more about what to expect.
The amount you receive should be an amount that is sufficient to cover your medical bills and other out of pocket expenses, including lost wages if you missed any work as a result of the crash. You should also receive payment to cover the pain and suffering, distress and other losses that have resulted from the crash.
An attorney can review your situation to help you identify the losses that you have experienced.
Why should you contact an attorney?
Insurance companies will attempt to settle the case for as little as possible. By working with an attorney, the insurance adjusters will be less likely to take advantage of the situation. You will know what to expect and will have an advocate to fight for your interests.
