What Compensation Can I Recover From My Truck Accident Damages?

Injuries in truck accidents are almost always serious and sometimes catastrophic, with life-altering impacts on an injury victim’s ability to earn a living and accomplish daily tasks. Even those with less serious injuries can quickly face financial hardship from one or two missed paychecks and a large hospital bill. A successful truck accident claim in North Port can recover damages including:

  • Property damage
  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Future income loss and/or diminished earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering compensation
  • Compensation for any other non-economic damages that apply in your case such as disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of household services, or PTSD

Your attorney from Shapiro | Delgado | Hofmann will carefully calculate your economic damages and seek the maximum available compensation for non-economic damages so you achieve a sense of justice as well as financial compensation in your truck accident case.

Determining Liability in a Truck Accident Case

Pursuing legal action to recover damages after a truck accident becomes complicated because the driver isn’t always the liable party. In some cases, the trucking company’s negligence or other entities may have caused the accident. It takes a knowledgeable attorney with experience in this area to pinpoint the liable party and document evidence of liability. Liable parties in truck accident cases in Florida may be the driver, the trucking company, a negligent truck maintenance company, or a third party like a negligent road agency or manufacturer of a defective truck part.

Proving liability requires demonstrating that the at-fault party breached their duty of care to take reasonable actions to prevent injuries, that the breach of duty caused injuries, and that the injury victims suffered damages.
