Riverview Truck Accident Lawyer

Commercial and private trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds and easily stretch over fifty feet in length. Their size, weight, and speed create a significant danger to other people on the road. When a truck collides with a passenger car, those in the smaller vehicle often suffer the most severe injuries.

If you or a family member suffered injuries in a collision involving a truck, you may not know what to do next. Medical care may become hard to afford due to lost income, and you might be getting several calls from the other party’s insurance company. If you are in this situation, you should talk to our skilled personal injury attorneys about your legal rights.

When another party is responsible for an accident, you can seek compensation from them through a legal claim. Get in touch with our Riverview truck accident lawyers to discuss your options and begin filing a case.

What are Common Causes of Truck Crashes?

A truck crash could occur in many ways, but when negligence is involved, you have the right to file a personal injury claim to seek compensation. Common scenarios that lead to severe truck crashes include, but are not limited to:

One of our knowledgeable attorneys can examine your case and determine the cause of your 18-wheeler collision.

Requirements for Personal Injury Protection Insurance

Florida Statute § 627.7407 requires nearly all motorists to carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance. After an accident, your PIP insurance provides you with compensation for your injuries, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.

These damages may include medical costs, loss of income, funeral expenses, and survivors’ loss damages. However, PIP often does not provide adequate compensation to cover all your injuries and damages. If this is the case, you should reach out to one of our dedicated semi-truck wreck lawyers right away.

Fault in Riverview Tractor-Trailer Collision Cases

In order to win a personal injury lawsuit, you must provide that another party’s negligence caused the trucking accident. Negligence occurs when a party in a truck collision fails to demonstrate reasonable care around you. When this failure also leads to your injuries, you may have a valid claim against that party.

In order to establish the defendant’s liability for the accident, you need sufficient proof of their negligence. Finding this evidence requires a thorough investigation of how the accident occurred. Our skilled attorneys understand how to investigate a case and seek the proof necessary for a successful truck accident claim.

What Happens if a Defective Vehicle or Part Caused of the Accident?

When a truck part or the main structure of a vehicle is defective, it can lead to dangerous consequences for everyone on the road at the time. A manufacturer that puts a defective part into the marketplace may be liable in a personal injury lawsuit.

Defective parts may be the result of an improper manufacturing process. Defects in this process can lead to faulty equipment that fails at very important times, such as when traveling at high speeds on a busy highway. Defendants should be responsible for the harms they cause as a result of their defective products.

Why Should You Hire an Experienced Attorney for Your Case?

Personal injury claims are incredibly complicated endeavors. Proving a defendant’s negligence requires establishing their liability by the applicable legal standard, which can be quite high in some cases. In every case, establishing that the defendant is the cause of the plaintiff’s harm requires substantial evidence and compliance with the rules of evidence in order to see it admitted for the court’s consideration.
