If you have suffered an injury in a truck accident, you are probably in a lot of pain and wondering what your next steps should be. You likely needed extensive medical care immediately after your injury and may be facing months or years of future care.
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, we know that it can be difficult to plan your recovery when you do not have the financial support you need to get through it. Our Daytona truck accident lawyers will fight for you to get the recovery, justice, and compensation you deserve.
How a Damage Award Can Help
Medical costs and lost wages are often a huge source of stress among truck accident victims. If you have received medical care for your injury, you likely already have medical bills accumulating. You may also have realized how expensive your recovery might be if you need ongoing future care.
A damage award should reimburse you for all of your past and future medical expenses resulting from your injury. If your recovery prevents you from returning to work, you should also receive compensation for all past and future lost wages until you can return.

How Much You Money You Might Be Entitled to
There is not a specific amount of money that any truck accident victim is entitled to because each award varies by case and type of injury.
Depending on your circumstances, you may be entitled to:
- Medical bills, both past and future
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Miscellaneous expenses related to your truck accident, such as transportation costs to appointments
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
Our team will help you determine the fair value of your case.
Wrongful Death Damages
If you lost a loved one in a truck accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf. Wrongful death damage awards compensate surviving family members for the value of the lost support and services of their loved one.
Surviving spouses may be entitled to recovery for loss of companionship and mental pain and suffering. Surviving children may be able to recover for their loss of parental companionship, instruction, guidance, and mental pain and suffering, per Florida Statutes § 768.21.
If you lost a loved one, you deserve justice and compensation for your loss. We will handle your legal case, so you and your family can heal and grieve in peace.
Factors Which May Influence Your Damage Award
- The party or parties that caused your accident
- Their employer (if they were working at the time of the accident)
- Their willingness to admit fault

Florida Laws to Consider Before Filing Your Case
There are some very important Florida laws you should consider when filing your Florida truck accident case. These laws can have a substantial impact on how or whether your case is resolved.
In Florida, an accident victim is not barred from recovering damages if they contributed to their accident, per Florida Statutes § 768.81. If you believe that you partially caused your accident, do not let it stop you from filing your case. If another party is also responsible, they may still owe you compensation for the damage they caused.
Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
You must file your truck accident case before the statute of limitations expires or you will not be able to do so. In Florida, the statute of limitations for truck accidents is four years and begins on the day of your accident, per Florida Statutes § 95.11.
Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
The wrongful death statute of limitations in Florida is only two years, which is half the length of the personal injury statute of limitations. Families planning to file wrongful death lawsuits need to be very conscious of this shorter statute of limitations, because they will not be able to file their lawsuit if it expires. The two years begin running on the day of the victim’s death.
