Do I Need an Attorney for my Truck Accident?
Every day thousands of people across Florida are injured in serious truck accidents. Truck accidents are different from other motor vehicle accidents in that the injuries can be severe, and the stakes can be higher. In addition, there are a number of different factors that can lead to a truck accident. The decision to hire an attorney for your truck accident is a personal one, but there are some important points you should keep in mind when making that decision.

Serious Injuries Involved

If you've been injured in a truck accident, then chances are your injuries are serious in nature. The mere size of a truck, when compared to another vehicle, makes truck accidents the most dangerous type of motor vehicle accident. Sometimes the injuries you are suffering are life-altering and will have long-term effects on your well-being. These types of serious injuries can have a devastating financial impact on a family. Compensation for serious injuries should always take into account the future impact these injuries will have on a victim. An experienced truck accident attorney can look at the circumstances of your case and your injuries and ensure that you receive fair compensation. If you decide to hire an attorney, that person can do the bulk of the legwork, and you can take some time to heal.

Determining Liability

In the majority of cases, the cause of an accident is negligence on the part of the truck driver. However, when it comes to truck accidents, there may be other responsible parties and other contributing factors. Other parties such as the owner of the truck, the trucking company, the company responsible for maintaining the truck, and the manufacturer of the truck could all potentially be liable for your injuries. Factors such as improper maintenance, unsecured cargo loads, inadequate training, and violations of federal rules could all play a part in the circumstances of the accident. In some cases, you could be dealing with multiple insurance companies. In addition, determining the cause of a truck accident may take some investigating.

An experienced truck accident attorney can handle the insurance companies and can conduct a thorough investigation to ensure that the responsible parties are held liable. These investigations are often complex, and having a knowledgeable attorney on your side can make sure that you are receiving adequate compensation from the liable parties.
