Florida’s roads and highways are filled with semi-trucks carrying cargo from place to place. These enormous commercial trucks can weigh as much as 40 tons when fully loaded. When they get into accidents, serious injuries are very likely, and, most often, it is occupants of passenger vehicles who suffer the most harm.

Our Plantation truck accident lawyer understands how these frightening car accidents happen and the legal remedies that may be available to the injured. He will examine all the details of your accident and advise you about your options. Reach out today to schedule a consultation at (954) 453-7200. Attorney Amor offers free consults, by phone, via video meeting or in person, whichever method is most convenient for you.

Truck Accidents by the Numbers

According to the National Safety Council’s large truck injury facts, 107,000 large trucks were involved in injury crashes nationwide in a recent year. These crashes resulted in 147,000 injuries, 68% of which occurred to occupants of other vehicles. Another 4,842 trucks were involved in fatal crashes that resulted in 4,965 deaths—71% of people who died were in other vehicles. In Florida, tens of thousands of commercial truck accidents occur each year that result in injuries and fatalities.

How Truck Accidents Happen

These dangerous accidents happen for a variety of reasons. Truck accidents may be due to:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Lack of driver training or experience
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Poorly maintained trucks or trailers
  • Overloaded or incorrectly loaded trucks
  • Manufacturing defects on trucks
  • Road hazards and poor weather
  • Reckless driving by drivers of other vehicles.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, an attorney who understands Florida law can help ensure that you get the financial compensation you need to pay your bills while you recuperate. Truck accident lawyer Carlos M. Amor will investigate the accident to determine how it happened. Then he will work hard to hold the responsible parties accountable.

Why You Need a Truck Accident Lawyer

Truck accidents are especially complex because of the likelihood of severe injuries. Also, because a commercial vehicle is involved, the trucking company may share liability. Trucking companies and their attorneys may try to shirk liability by claiming the driver was an independent contractor and not an employee of the company. Or they may claim the driver was not working at the time of the crash, so it was outside of the company’s purview. A truck accident lawyer will:

  • Investigate to determine whether there was an employer-employee relationship
  • Work to hold all liable parties accountable for your injuries
  • Review your medical bills and other damages to calculate the monetary value of your claim
  • Try to negotiate a fair settlement with insurers
  • Fight for you in court if a fair settlement cannot be reached.

Every truck accident case is unique. Our attorney Carlos M. Amor can advise you how your case could proceed based upon all the facts of the accident.

Truck Accident FAQs

Plantation Truck Accident Attorney Answers Your Questions

If you’ve been hurt in a truck accident, you probably have many questions. In this section, our Plantation truck accident attorney addresses common questions the law firm receives. For concerns specific to your situation, contact truck accident attorney Carlos M. Amor directly by calling (954) 453-7200.

Who can be held liable in a truck accident?

Who can be held liable in a truck accident depends on all the circumstances. Here are some examples of parties who may be liable:

  • Negligent truck drivers
  • Trucking companies that don’t properly vet drivers or maintain vehicles
  • Other drivers whose carelessness leads to crashes involving trucks
  • Manufacturers of truck parts or equipment that malfunctions
  • Agencies responsible for repairing roadway hazards.

Sometimes more than one liable party may be named in a legal claim. Once our truck accident attorney examines your case, he can advise you about potential liability.

How much compensation is available in truck accidents?

How much compensation is available in truck accidents depends on the damages a person suffers. Compensation may include payment for the following types of damages:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost income from not being able to work
  • Lost or reduced future earning capacity due to injuries
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering.

If someone dies in a trucking accident, wrongful death damages may include payment for lost support and companionship, mental pain and suffering of survivors, funeral and burial costs and more.

What types of injuries happen in truck accidents?

Not surprisingly, because of the size and weight of commercial trucks, injuries are often especially severe. The types of injuries that may happen in truck accidents include traumatic brain injuries, concussions, spinal cord damage, neck and back trauma, internal injuries and organ damage, broken bones, burns and disfigurement. Serious injuries can last a lifetime and result in exorbitantly high medical costs, as well as expenses for day-to-day care and assistance. If you have been seriously hurt in a trucking accident, reach out for help from a Plantation truck accident attorney who may be able to help you get significant compensation.

How long will it take to get compensation after a truck accident?

How long it takes to get compensation after a truck accident depends upon the complexity of the accident. The number of vehicles involved, the number of potentially liable parties, the clarity of the evidence and the severity of injuries can all affect how long a claim takes to be resolved. If cases can be settled through negotiations with insurers and their policyholders and not go to trial, they typically settle faster and compensation is received more quickly. In some instances, it may take just months. Cases that go to trial often take longer to be resolved—potentially years, if appeals are involved.

The good news is that the majority of accident cases are resolved through settlement negotiations. Our truck accident attorney seeks to negotiate fair settlements for clients. However, if the other side won’t negotiate or only makes a lowball settlement offer, Carlos M. Amor is ready and able to stand up for your right to compensation at trial.

Statute of Limitations in Truck Accident Cases

Don’t Delay in Speaking to a Truck Accident Attorney or You Could Lose Your Right to File a Claim

Every state has a statute of limitations, or deadline, for filing civil lawsuits. The Florida Statute of Limitations for filing a lawsuit in a truck accident negligence case is four years from the date of the crash or the date you discovered your injuries. With some exceptions, if you don’t file within this timeframe, you could lose your right to sue the truck driver, trucking company or other party that caused the crash and your serious injuries. For wrongful death lawsuits, beneficiaries have only two years from the date of death to file a claim. As already pointed out, there are some exceptions to the statute of limitations, so always speak directly to a truck accident lawyer about deadlines in your personal injury case.
