At The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, our Hallandale Beach personal injury lawyers can identify the liable party and pursue them for fair compensation.
Your Hallandale Beach Truck Accident Injuries May Warrant Various Forms Of Compensation
Different factors, such as the extent of your injuries, will affect your potential compensation after a truck accident. You may be surprised at the accident-related expenses you can recover, though. Our Hallandale Beach truck accident lawyers can accurately assess your losses to make sure you seek fair compensation.
In general, you may receive awards for:
- Your current medical expenses
- Ongoing medical bills, such as for physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost income if you took time off work to heal
- Reduced earning capacity if you can no longer work or earn your pre-injury income
You may also recover awards for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering and scarring and disfigurement. When challenges arise in a truck accident case, our legal team can help you navigate them. For example, if an insurance adjuster undervalues or denies your claim, we can explore your legal options for seeking compensation. We can help you file a personal injury lawsuit against a liable party.
Wrongful Death Damages In A Truck Accident Case
No one deserves to lose a loved one due to negligence. If your family member suffered fatal truck accident injuries, our wrongful death lawyers can fight for justice and compensation.
We can determine who in your family, such as the representative of the estate, can file a lawsuit against a liable party. You may receive awards for funeral expenses, along with the income your loved one provided and their accident-related medical bills.
Establishing Negligence In A Hallandale Beach Truck Accident Case
The first step in pursuing compensation after a truck accident is to build a case based on evidence of negligence. You must prove that another party owed you a duty of care to keep you reasonably safe and breached that duty. From there, you will need to link your injuries and financial expenses to the accident itself. Our truck accident team serving Hallandale Beach can gather a variety of evidence to support your case.
For example, we may obtain:
- The truck driver’s log book, driving history, and certifications
- Testimony from expert witnesses, such as accident reconstructionists and medical experts
- Eyewitness testimony
- Your medical records and bills
- Pictures from the scene of the accident
- Pictures of the damage done to the vehicles involved
- Dashcam or traffic camera footage
We can get to the bottom of who caused or contributed to your truck accident in Hallandale Beach and pursue each liable party for their percentage of the fault. If an insurance adjuster tries to shift more of the blame onto you, we can present our evidence to counter their determination of fault.
There Could Be Multiple Liable Parties In Your Hallandale Truck Accident
Unlike car accidents, there could be multiple parties who share in the liability for your truck accident. These parties could include more than just the driver. They could also include:
- The company that hired the underqualified driver
- The company that misloaded the freight
- The truck or parts manufacturer that built a defective product
- The mechanic who failed to keep up proper maintenance
And there could still be others. We will discover who is liable for your truck accident and file claims with each.
You Can Afford To Hire Our Hallandale Beach Truck Accident Team
Some personal injury law firms have upfront fees or hourly retainers. When you choose the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, you don’t have to worry about that. We operate on a contingency fee basis, so we do not charge upfront fees. We simply take a percentage of the compensation you receive through a settlement or verdict if we are successful.
This way, you don’t have to stress about incurring additional losses after an accident. You also know we will use every resource possible to fight for fair compensation because our payment depends on it.
We also offer free consultations so you can learn about your legal options and ask us any questions you may have.
Act Quickly To Protect Your Hallandale Beach Truck Accident Lawsuit
We may begin seeking compensation by filing an insurance claim with the liable party’s provider. If an insurer refuses to offer fair compensation, you will want to be ready to file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party. We may even suggest filing one from the get-go. Keep in mind, though, that you have a deadline to do this.
According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(a), you generally have just two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. The same timeline applies if you are a family member filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Our legal team will work to meet this deadline, but the sooner you call, the better. We need time to investigate your accident, gather evidence, and negotiate a settlement. If you miss the deadline, you risk having the court dismiss your case. You would then have no legal recourse to force an insurer to honor your accident claim, either.
Seek Medical Attention After A Truck Accident
You deserve to recover from your injuries as much as possible, and our team can help take the weight of the legal process off your shoulders to do that. You should also prioritize your medical care. Follow your doctor’s orders and try not to miss any appointments.
Following their instructions can help you reach your maximum medical recovery and protect your case for compensation.
