If you or your loved one sustained an injury in an accident involving a construction truck, you might be eligible to recover compensation for medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.
A Palm Coast construction truck accident lawyer can help. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine provides free consultations to those injured in accidents involving large trucks. We work on contingency, so we only get paid if you do.
Compensation You Can Seek Following a Truck Accident
Determining the recoverable compensation for your case depends on getting a clear picture of your injuries and what losses you may encounter in the future. You can fight for restitution for things like:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Wrongful death
- Permanent disability
- Property damage
Do not sign a settlement offer from the insurance company until you first speak with a lawyer. Our attorneys can review any settlement offers to ensure they cover not only your short-term losses and expenses but future losses as well.
For example, you are entitled to recover compensation for your emergency medical care and the cost to treat your injuries. You can also get compensation for lost wages while recovering.
But a construction truck accident claim should seek compensation for ongoing and future treatment as well. If your injuries cause permanent injury or disability, you could recover compensation for diminished earning capacity.
Work with our team to identify the full scope of losses you can include in your truck accident claim.

Statute of Limitations for Construction Truck Accidents
You have four years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). We can help you file your lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires. If you miss the deadline, you could be unable to file your lawsuit and recover compensation for losses.
Our Attorneys Work on Contingency Fees
We only get paid if you do. Our lawyers work on contingency fees, which means that we only get paid attorney fees if you recover compensation. Our attorney fee is a percentage of the settlement or judgment, so if you do not recover compensation, then you do not pay us attorney fees. There are no upfront costs to hire our truck accident lawyers.
Common Causes of Truck Accidents
Some causes of construction truck accidents may include:
- Driving under the influence (DUI)

- Overloading or poor balance of the cargo
- Fatigued due to overworking
- Not checking blind spots

Work with our team to identify the cause of the accident and file claims against the liable parties. Our attorneys retrieve evidence to prove fault; some of the evidence we may review includes eyewitness statements, records from the construction or truck company, photographs of the accident scene, and more. We may even work with expert witnesses who can help prove fault for the accident.
Injuries From Construction Truck Accidents
An accident involving a large construction truck can cause serious injuries, which may include:
- Back and neck injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Broken bones
- Concussion and traumatic brain injury (TBI)

If you did not require emergency treatment after the accident, set up a doctor’s appointment for an evaluation. Follow up with any medical treatment recommended by the doctor to ensure you get the care you need after your accident.
Any medical treatment or physical therapy costs associated with your injuries should be included in your personal injury claim. Our truck accident attorneys will make sure your claim accounts for current and long-term expenses to treat your injuries.
