Large, unwieldy commercial trucks pose a significant hazard to others on the roadway. Trucking companies and truck drivers have a duty to take all reasonable measures to prevent causing injuries to others. When they breach this duty of care and the result is injury to a motorist and damages from the injuries, the party at fault is liable for damages.

Who Might be Liable in a Truck Accident Claim in Florida?

Driver error is the most common cause of truck accidents in Florida, but the driver is not always the liable party. For instance, the trucking company may be liable for engaging in negligent hiring or training practices, or in failing to properly monitor driving hours. A truck accident lawyer will investigate all aspects of the accident to determine the party liable for damages, typically one of the following:

  • The driver
  • The trucking company
  • A negligent truck maintenance or repair company
  • A negligent freight-loading company
  • The manufacturer of a defective truck part

Once your attorney from Shapiro | Delgado | Hofmann identifies the liable party they will document evidence of the negligent action that caused the accident, carefully calculate your damages, and send a compelling demand package to the appropriate insurance company.

Common Damages in Truck Accident Claims in Florida

Truck accidents can cause devastating injuries including brain injuries, fractures, spinal cord damage, burns, and more. Some injuries leave victims with temporary or permanent disabilities. Even mild injuries can quickly lead to financial hardships with one or two missed paychecks and a hefty medical bill. A successful claim commonly recovers compensation for damages such as the following:

  • Property damage
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future income loss
  • Diminished earning capacity due to disabilities from the accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any other non-economic damages that might apply to your circumstances such as disfigurement compensation, loss of enjoyment of life, traumatic limb loss, or PTSD

Financial compensation for non-economic damages cannot erase pain and suffering or trauma, but it provides a sense of justice for victims and maximizes the overall amount of compensation available in a claim.
