Fort Lauderdale Truck Accident Attorney
In 2018, there were more than 45,000 truck / bus accidents throughout the state of Florida. In south Florida’s three largest counties, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, there were over 16,000 of these accidents. Given the sheer size of these trucks navigating the highways, there is no wonder why these accidents cause catastrophic injuries, including death. The force of thousands of pounds of metal is destructive enough to demolish smaller vehicles on the road. These accidents can arise from any number of reasons including driver fatigue, inexperience, speeding or distracted driving. Whatever the cause of these accidents, the injuries are typically severe. These truck accident injuries include traumatic brain injuries, burns and spinal cord damages that can be difficult if not impossible to rehabilitate from.
Truck accidents are complex and quite different from automobile accidents. Commercial carriers retain excellent trial attorneys to defend them in these lawsuits and do their best to prevent the gathering of evidence that is critical to proving who is at fault. You need an experienced truck accident attorney to thoroughly investigate your accident and gather the necessary evidence as soon as possible. Building a strong case starts from the day of the accident. You only have four years to file a lawsuit after being hurt in a Florida truck accident.
The party responsible for the accident is the one responsible for the injuries caused. This can be the insurance carrier, the truck driver, the truck owner, or a manufacturer of the truck or part. These injuries can lead to high medical bills, loss of income, future medical needs, pain and suffering, permanent disfigurement and even punitive damages.
