How Truck Accidents Differ From Car Accidents
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) reports that, in 2018, there were over 403,000 car crashes in the state of Florida. This includes accidents involving all kinds of vehicles, from motorcycles to automobiles and trucks, as well as pedestrians and bicyclists. Commercial trucks are far larger than most other vehicles on the road. So when a truck is involved in an accident, it is likely to do far more damage and cause more serious injuries than another vehicle.
More damage and more serious injuries mean more expenses and longer-lasting consequences for the accident victims. If you or a loved one is among those victims, you may be entitled to compensation to help you pay medical bills, repair bills, and more. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at 1-800-747-3733. You worry about getting better. We take care of everything else.
When to Sue and What to Ask For
According to Florida Statute § 95.11, you have four years from the date of a car accident to file a lawsuit related to that accident. If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you only have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file. So you do have some time to sit down and think about whether you want to file a lawsuit. But, as with anything else, you do not want to wait until the last moment to pursue the damages you deserve.
There are two main types of compensation you may qualify for following a concrete truck accident. The first is economic damages. These will aim to compensate you for any financial losses you suffered because of the accident or your injuries. They may include:
- Medical expenses: you needed tests, surgery, medication, or another kind of treatment for your injuries.
- Repair expenses: you had to pay to get your car fixed after the accident and/or to rent a car while your own was in the shop.
- Lost wages: you were not able to work until you recovered from your injury, depriving you of much-needed income.
- Lost earning capacity: you will never be able to work as much as you did before, or you are unable to work at all.
Noneconomic damages are the second type of compensation. These damages will compensate you for any physical or mental losses you suffered because of the accident or your injuries. They may include:
- Pain and suffering: your injuries, or even the trauma of the accident itself, caused you mental and emotional stress.
- Reduced quality of life: your life will never be as easy or pain-free as it was before the accident.
- Disability: you suffered the loss or partial loss of an organ, limb, sense, or other essential function.
- Loss of companionship: you lost a loved one due to the accident and can no longer rely on them for love, support, and so on.
Some of the damages listed here can apply to personal injury cases (where you are suing on your own behalf) and wrongful death cases (where you are suing on behalf of a deceased loved one). Of the above mentioned damages, only loss of companionship is specific to wrongful death cases.
No matter what kind of lawsuit you are filing, a lawyer can help you figure out what damages you qualify for.

Assess Your Case
First things first: do you have a case? All you have to do to figure that out is pick up the phone. At no cost or obligation to you, we will evaluate your case and tell you if we can help you, and if so, what the process may entail.
Build Your Case
If you choose to hire us to represent you, we will pull evidence from numerous sources to back up your claim and strengthen your case. These sources may include testimony from witnesses or experts, police reports, medical records, complaints against the trucking company (if applicable), and more. The evidence will give us a clearer picture of the accident, its causes, and its consequences. This may be vital in helping us figure out who is liable in your case and how much you can sue for.
File Your Case
You do not have to worry about filing paperwork or notifying the relevant parties within strict deadlines. Your Miami concrete truck lawyer will take care of all that for you. This includes scheduling a court date, if necessary.
Present Your Case
Most insurance companies prefer to settle lawsuits out of court. After filing a lawsuit, therefore, our next stop is often to head to the negotiating table. We will represent you at those meetings and fight hard for a fair settlement. If we reach an agreement that you are satisfied with, we will draw up the paperwork. If, however, the insurance company refuses to pay what you deserve, we will continue the fight in the courtroom.
