Brooksville Truck Accident Lawyer

In Brooksville, large trucks are essential for providing our comforts and many modern conveniences, supplying materials to build homes and buildings, and ensuring that we are well-fed and nourished. But large trucks are also dangerous, and when defective vehicle parts or negligent drivers are involved, truck accidents can happen.

At the law office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, our Brooksville truck accident lawyers know how devastating truck accidents are, and we want to help.

If you’ve been in a truck accident, our lawyers will support you by investigating your case, determining what happened and who should be held liable, and calculating the value of your claim.

Common Causes Of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents rarely just happen; instead, they are the result of negligence and/or error. Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver negligence, such as speeding, driving while impaired or fatigued, aggressively driving, taking a turn too fast, and more;
  • Vehicle defects, such as defective tires, faulty brakes, and steering problems;
  • Cargo shifts and spills, often caused by cargo loading or securement errors;
  • Road defects, such as debris in road, poor road conditions, or animals in the road; and
  • Third-party driver negligence, such as a driver cutting off a large truck, engaging in “squeeze play,” and more.

Damages From Truck Accidents

Because of a truck’s sheer size, when a large truck collides with a smaller motor vehicle, the damages can be cataclysmic. The smaller vehicle may be completely totaled, leaving any occupants with severe or fatal injuries. Damages in a truck accident claim typically include:

  • Injuries that are disabling, painful, psychologically damaging, and disfiguring;
  • Large economic expenses in the form of medical bills, lost wages, property damage costs, home health care costs, and more;
  • Intangible, noneconomic losses, such as a diminished quality of life, the value of pain and suffering, the damage to a relationship as a result of severe injuries, etc.

If you have been severely injured and have suffered any or a combination of the damages listed above, our law firm can help.
