Trinity Truck Accident Lawyer

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 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 trucks’ 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 healthcare 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.

Common Questions About Truck Accident Claims in Trinity, FL

  • Should I File a Truck Accident Lawsuit?
  • If you’ve been in a serious truck accident, you may be wondering whether or not filing a truck accident lawsuit makes sense. Our lawyers usually advise our clients to pursue other means of compensation first–i.e., filing a truck accident claim against the at-fault party. If the claim is unsuccessful and settlement negotiations fail, then litigation may be appropriate. Our goal is to settle your claim out of court sans litigation whenever possible.
  • What Types of Damages Can I Recover?
  • When you are injured in a truck accident, our law team will work hard to make sure you recover your maximum damages amount. We will advocate for your right to both economic and noneconomic damages–that is, damages for your out-of-pocket costs and future expenses, as well as compensation for the intangible harms you’ve suffered, such as the value of a diminished quality of life.
  • Do I Really Need a Truck Accident Lawyer?
  • You don’t have to hire a truck accident attorney, but doing so will likely serve you well. The truck accident claims process can be complicated, as there are many potentially liable parties. You’ll need a thorough investigation, the testimonies of experts, great evidence, and a solid understanding of the claims process and your rights in order to get the settlement you deserve. Our lawyers will support your best interests and handle the various elements of your claim along the way.
