Truck accidents, which can involve trucks for personal or commercial use, can cause devastating injuries. If you were injured or lost a family member in a truck accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
A North Port truck accident lawyer with the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can help you recover damages for these expenses and more.
Injuries You May Suffer After a North Port Truck Accident
Truck accidents can cause severe injuries that can be life-altering and lead to daunting medical bills. Here are some common injuries caused by truck accidents:
- Spinal cord injuries: According to University of Florida Health, motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of traumatic spinal cord injuries. These injuries can cause permanent loss of function to the arms, legs, respiratory muscles, bladder, and bowels.
- Broken bones: University of Florida Health also lists motor vehicle accidents as a common cause of broken bones.
- Whiplash: In an accident, the seatbelt may stop the body from moving forward, but the head and neck may suffer from the impact. Whiplash can damage soft tissue of the neck and cause pain and stiffness that persist for months or years.
Monetary Compensation for a Truck Accident
If another driver caused your truck accident through negligent behavior, they may be financially liable for your accident-related expenses. Some examples of negligence include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
- Ignoring traffic signs and signals
We will use evidence, such as medical bills and records, past wage statements, and vehicle repair or replacement receipts, to estimate how much your damages are worth. Here are some expenses you may be entitled to recover:
- Medical expenses, such as emergency care, diagnostic imaging, surgeries, follow-up appointments, rehabilitative therapies, prescription medication, and more
- Property damage for repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Lost wages for unpaid time you must take off work to recover
- Future lost wages if you cannot return to your previous job
How Our Lawyers Serving North Port Can Help with Your Truck Accident Case
While you can seek damages on your own, you may feel more comfortable working with a truck accident lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the legal landscape. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine have helped people just like you. We take over the legal and administrative work so that you can focus on healing.
Here are some ways we can help:
We can recommend healthcare providers, help you schedule appointments, and handle other details related to your accident.
Investigate the Truck Accident
The police and insurance companies will investigate the accident, but we will independently investigate what happened. We can look for evidence, such as:
- Cell phone transcripts
- Toxicology reports
- Police reports
- Pictures of the scene
- Eyewitness statements
File an Insurance Claim for You
We will handle all the insurance paperwork for you, including filing a claim and submitting supporting documents.
Negotiate a Settlement
We will use our estimate of your damages to reach an appropriate settlement. Insurance providers may make an initial offer to settle the case quickly, but we will negotiate a settlement that fairly covers your losses.
Take Your Case to Court
If we cannot come to a reasonable settlement, we will file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver and represent you in court.
