You can file an insurance claim or lawsuit with the help of a Conway truck accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine. An attorney can help you pursue compensation and get justice for yourself and your family.
Unique Dangers of Trucking Accidents
Trucks are 20 to 30 times heavier than most passenger vehicles, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). They are often carrying heavy loads as well. That makes them potential dangers to other vehicles on the road, which is why there are so many regulations concerning commercial trucks.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and state regulators have made rules about how long a trucker can drive each day and when to take breaks. They have set limits on cargo weight and how trucks are inspected.
Sometimes, truck drivers and companies do not adhere to these rules. They may take risks to make their deadline, and the consequences can be serious. The at-fault party in your Conway truck accident needs to be held legally accountable.
Types of Recoverable Damages
If you or your loved ones have been harmed in a truck accident, a lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you pursue damages. Your damages can cover a wide range of out-of-pocket expenses, including:
Medical expenses: a motor vehicle accident can cause a wide variety of injuries, from concussions to broken bones. The weight discrepancy between a truck and the typical passenger vehicle makes suffering serious injuries more likely. Economic damages include the cost of hospital stays, doctor visits, medication, and rehabilitation.
Lost wages and reduced earning potential: if your injuries prevent you from working, those missed paychecks can cause economic stress for your family. If your injuries leave lasting effects, that can make it harder for you to work in the same capacity or at all in the future. The full extent of your injuries needs to be considered when fair compensation is calculated.
Property damage: if your vehicle was damaged in an accident and insurance cannot adequately pay for the repairs, you can pursue compensation that would help you repair or replace it.
Wrongful death: if your loved one passed away due to a truck accident, you may be able to pursue wrongful death damages. These would take into account the economic contribution of your loved one to your household along with your family’s pain and suffering. You can find out if your case qualifies during your free consultation.
Pain and suffering: any other past and future pain and suffering will be considered under non-economic damages. These are less tangible losses your lawyer can help place a value on.
Why You Should Hire a Lawyer
You are not required to hire a lawyer when you pursue a personal injury or wrongful death case. However, an attorney can assist you in this trying time. Your lawyer will:
File your case for you: your attorney will file your case and get the legal process started before the statute of limitations expires. Per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you have four years to file a personal injury case. You have two years to pursue a wrongful death action. Your lawyer will ensure that you do not miss your chance to fight for a settlement you deserve.
Keep you updated on your case: your lawyer will frequently update you on any progress in your case. You will also have your attorney’s personal number to call them if you have a concern or question.
Handle all communications for you: there is enough on your plate, so we will handle all communications with other involved parties for you.
Calculate fair compensation: your lawyer will take you and your family’s experience into account and calculate fair compensation based on how the accident has affected your day-to-day lives.
Gather evidence needed to hold liable parties accountable: liable parties can include the truck driver, the trucking company, or someone who passed a faulty vehicle through inspections. We will evaluate all of the facts and determine who caused you and your family harm. Then your lawyer will help you hold them accountable.
Help you prepare for testimony: we know that testifying in court or in a deposition can be a nerve-wracking experience for anyone. Your lawyer will tell you what to expect and make the process less intimidating.
We want you to focus on recovering. We will handle everything else. Your lawyer can even help you schedule medical appointments and get your car fixed.
