What You Should Know About Recovering Compensation
Semi trucks are commercial vehicles that tend to have sizable insurance coverage. This insurance should cover your medical bills, lost pay, and other damages under certain circumstances.
In Florida, your personal injury protection (PIP) covers the first $10,000 of your medical bills and lost pay. It does not matter who caused the accident because Florida has a “no-fault” policy for motor vehicle accidents per Florida Statute § 627.7407.
However, there are instances when you can seek compensation beyond your insurance:
- If your injuries exceed your PIP coverage
- If you are not a licensed Florida driver and therefore do not have PIP
- If your injuries can be categorized as “severe” by Florida statutes
- If you can prove that the other party caused your injuries because of negligence, omission, intent, or unlawful action
Most people do not feel comfortable trying to figure out what their insurance covers and how to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. Call the office of a semi truck accident lawyer today for help in seeking compensation at

We Help You Recover Compensation for Medical Bills and Other Damages
Whenever a semi truck collides with a passenger car, it is more likely that the driver and occupants in the car will suffer more serious injuries than the truck driver. Most people know about medical bills associated with these injuries, but there are other losses.
A Cape Coral semi truck accident lawyer can carefully evaluate your situation, taking into consideration your injuries, damages, and the overall circumstances of your accident.
You could be awarded for damages that include:
- Medical care including emergency room, ambulance, hospitalization, surgery, medical tests, and other treatment
- Rehabilitation, skilled nursing, or therapies
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity if your future earnings are negatively affected by your injuries
- Property damage, including temporary transportation
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
You may be awarded additional or different damages depending on your case.
You Have a Limited Time to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit
A semi truck accident is a personal injury case. While many of these accidents are settled and do not go to court, others may stall during negotiation. In our experience, most personal injury lawsuits are the result of failing to reach a mutual agreement.
Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a) allows four years to file a personal injury lawsuit, beginning on the date of their injury. It takes time to build a case, and the court schedule is often backed up with other cases. You do not want to miss this statute of limitations.
