Although 18-wheelers are a common sight in Coral Springs, truckers still must operate these vehicles safely. If not, both the trucker and their employer could be liable if they cause a collision.
Were you hurt in a collision with a large truck in Broward County? A Coral Springs 18-wheeler accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can pursue compensation for your accident-related losses. We offer free case reviews where you can explore your legal options now.
It Costs You Nothing Out of Pocket to Hire Our Team
As the injured party, you shouldn’t have to worry about affording legal help. That’s why our truck accident lawyers work on a contingency-fee basis. This motivates us to go the extra mile to ensure you get compensated. After all, if we don’t recover your damages, you don’t owe us our attorney’s fees.
You can explore our contingency-fee-based payment plan when you call us. You can trust that we’ll do everything possible to alleviate your financial concerns during this challenging time.
You Should Consider Legal Aid Before the Statute of Limitations Expires
Florida Statutes § 95.11 outlines how long you have to file a lawsuit:
- You generally have four years to file a truck accident lawsuit if you suffered serious injuries.
- You typically have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit if you lost a loved one.
Some exceptions could extend your filing deadline. For instance, you could get an extension if the at-fault driver fled the scene. You could also have more time to file if you were hurt as a minor, per Florida Statutes § 95.051.
We encourage you to consider prompt legal aid even if you think an extension applies to your case. If the statute of limitations expires before you file a lawsuit, you would be unable to pursue damages through the court system.
The Benefits of Partnering with an 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyer in Coral Springs
Reasons to consider partnering with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine include:
Truck Accidents Can Have More Than One At-Fault Party
In collisions involving passenger vehicles, there are typically two involved parties: the party that caused the accident and the party that suffered injuries. Truck accidents are different. The involved parties could include:
- The injured party
- The truck driver
- The truck driver’s employer
- The company that maintained or manufactured the truck
- Government entities
- Other road users
While recovering from a serious accident, you don’t want to manage communications with these parties on your own. You don’t want to deal with the trucking company’s lawyers, either. You can trust our team to manage all dealings with these parties while you focus on getting better.
We Will Determine Your Accident’s Cause in Broward County
To have a solid case, we must assert that because the other party acted carelessly or recklessly, you were hurt. This requires us to show how your accident happened.
Using the accident report, eyewitness statements, and your car’s black box data, we may find that one or more of the following factors caused your collision:
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Vehicular malfunction
- Inclement weather conditions
- Driver inexperience
- Failing to yield
We Will Calculate Your Injury-Related Losses
You can recover more than medical bills after suffering harm in an 18-wheeler accident. You can also recover pain and suffering, lost income, and loss of enjoyment of life. Yet, it can be difficult to determine what constitutes a fair settlement.
We will consider these factors to determine what you’re owed:
- The severity of your condition
- Your expected recovery period
- Your time missed from work
- Your quality of life
- The cause of the accident
- The cost of your financial losses (such as your medical bills)
- Your employment records
We may also consult with healthcare professionals, economists, and other parties to learn more about what you need.
We Will Deal with the Insurance Companies for You
After your truck accident, you’ll likely file a claim with your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage before pursuing damages elsewhere. Yet, even though you’re filing a claim with your own provider, this won’t necessarily make matters easier.
The insurance company may unnecessarily delay your claim’s progression––or a claims adjuster may offer less than you need. With the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine on your side, you can trust that we’ll:
- Answer all phone calls and emails from the insurer
- Gather evidence to assert your right to damages
- Negotiate for what you need
- Assert what you’re entitled to under the liable policy
- Protect you from bad faith insurance practices
When the insurer calls you, tell its representative that you have a lawyer. Once you retain legal aid, the insurance company must go through us.
What Should I Do After My Coral Springs Truck Accident?
Aside from seeking medical attention, the following measures could secure your right to damages:
- Keep track of your losses. This means keeping all invoices, billing statements, and receipts related to your expenses.
- Take a break from social media. Cyberspace doesn’t need to know about your accident and injuries. Anything you share could also give the insurance company a reason to dispute or deny your claim.
- Leave all communications to your lawyer. If the at-fault party, its representative, or an insurance company tries to contact you, refer them to us. You should take this time to focus on healing from your injuries––not juggling communications with multiple entities.
- Follow your treatment plan. You want to show the insurance company that you did everything possible to treat your condition. That means taking all medications, attending all doctors’ appointments, and limiting physical activity as recommended.
