Truck Accidents in Citrus Park

Large trucks are an integral part of our society, providing the goods and products that most of us rely on on a daily basis. Without trucks, food, construction, household items, and more would never be delivered to Citrus Park businesses and residents.

As necessary as large trucks are, they can also be dangerous. Weighing far more than an average passenger car, a large truck can cause catastrophic damage if involved in a crash. Truck accidents are one of the deadliest types of motor vehicle accidents that can occur.

When a truck and a smaller car collide, the smaller vehicle will likely sustain severe damages–it may be totaled or crushed completely. This means that any occupants of the smaller vehicle will likely be severely harmed. Common injuries in a Citrus Park truck accident include crush injuries, bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, lacerations, scarring and disfigurement, and more.

If you have been in an accident with a large truck, our Citrus Park truck accident lawyers at the law office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group can help.

Damages Recoverable In A Citrus Park Truck Accident Claim

If you have been involved in a Citrus Park truck accident, you may be facing such severe physical and psychological injuries, as well as economic losses, that your life is changed forevermore. At the office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, our Citrus Park truck accident attorneys want to make sure that you recover every cent that you have suffered in losses. We’ll advocate for your right to compensation for your:

  • Medical bills, which may total into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and may continue pouring in for months or years;
  • Lost wages and loss of earning capacity if you are unable to go to work or/and suffer a disability that prevents you from earning at the same level that you did prior to the accident;
  • Property damage costs for damage to your car and any personal items within your vehicle at the time of the collision; and
  • Noneconomic damages for the value of your diminished quality of life, psychological harm, physical pain and suffering, and mental anguish.

How Truck Accidents Happen

One of the reasons that truck accident claims are so complicated is not just that the damages are so severe, but also because determining how the accident occurred may prove difficult. Truck accidents are usually the result of someone’s negligence, although whose negligence may not be clear. Some common causes of truck accidents include cargo shifts, vehicle defects (such as a tire blowout or brake failure), truck driver error, the error of a third-party, and more. Driving too fast for conditions, driving erratically or aggressively, and failing to look before changing lanes all increase the risk of an accident. Truck driver fatigue and impairment are also leading causes of crashes.

There are many other things to consider in any Florida car accident case as well. For example, multiple parties may be at fault in your accident and identifying all potentially liable parties may be necessary to maximize the recovery for your injuries and damages. For example, if either car was recalled for a defect, it may be possible to name the vehicle manufacturer in addition to the driver. If the vehicle was used in the course of the liable party’s job, there may be other sources of recovery.

It’s also important to know that Florida is a pure comparative negligence state, which means that the judge or jury will assign a percentage of fault to each party in the accident. That means, if they decide the accident was 40 percent your fault, you can only recover 60 percent of your damages in the accident. A highly skilled car accident attorney can investigate and analyze the facts of the case and minimize the amount of fault that can be assessed against you and see to it that you get the maximum compensation.

There are so many things to consider when you’ve been the victim of an accident, but one of them shouldn’t be how to pay for everything if someone else is at fault. The Citrus Park Car Accident Attorneys at Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group have the knowledge and the skills to make sure that all details are handled properly and that the result is to your satisfaction and relief. You should get everything you deserve at the same time you experience peace of mind. Contact us today and find out how we can help you.
