If you got hurt in a truck collision in South Miami, you likely suffered injuries, not the truck driver. Yet you are likely the one who must fight for financial compensation. Our personal injury attorneys think that’s backward. Victims of negligence shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to access care, replace lost income, and recover pain and suffering damages.
We work to set things right. We force negligent parties to confront the damage they caused by demanding compensation. No more chasing down adjusters, fighting for attention, or going out of your way to prove you were hurt and suffered extensive losses. Our South Miami personal injury lawyers will do all that and more for you. Call our law firm today for a free consultation.
Our South Miami Truck Accident Attorneys Will Lead Your Damages Case
At the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine, our South Miami personal injury lawyers can see what’s ahead. Each case is different, with different goals, compensation amounts, and obstacles. However, we can draw on our years of experience working for South Florida accident victims to recognize what steps to take.
Investigating Liable Parties
We look into a large pool of possible parties to hold accountable for damages, including:
- Trucking companies
- Cargo companies
- Third-party drivers or road users
- Product manufacturers
- Property owners
- Government entities
We consider so many possibilities to get justice from everyone who contributed and expand your compensation options. Trucking accident expenses are often high, and one party might not have sufficient insurance or funds to cover everything. Our truck collision attorneys look for every chance to recover fair compensation. It’s one of many reasons some truck accident victims hire our attorneys to lead their cases.
Collecting And Reviewing Relevant Case Evidence
It’s OK if you don’t know what evidence to collect from your semi-truck accident. Our South Miami truck accident attorneys will sort through and catalog everything for you. We can consider any of the following:
- Physical debris
- Photos of the accident scene
- Witness statements
- Video footage
- Transportation logs
- Expert analysis
- Medical records
- Police reports
We can even investigate behind the scenes of the trucking or cargo company to see how they run their operation. Negligent hiring practices, poor training, and failure to adhere to safety regulations make companies liable. We can talk to employees and review records to find out if any of this occurred in your case.
Initiating A Claim Or Lawsuit
Our firm offers help with insurance claims and lawsuits. We talk to insurance adjusters, company representatives, other employers, or directly with a driver—whatever it takes to get negotiations started and reach an agreement.
If your case needs to go to trial, we will prepare all the documentation and file it for you. Companies are used to court cases and will come prepared, but the same is true of the truck collision lawyers at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine—we have trial experience and can build your court case. We will walk you through every step of the lawsuit and take care of it while you recover from the crash.
Implementing A Plan For Recovering Your Truck Collision Damages
Each truck injury case will have its own unique features and challenges. We, therefore, never use a one-size-fits-all approach and instead develop a plan alongside you.
To ensure we’re continually providing you with personal service, you get your attorney’s cell phone number to check in, ask questions, and receive updates. We also address your everyday concerns like getting to and from appointments, having your car repaired, and accessing the medical care you need.
Regardless of which path your case ultimately takes—an insurance claim that settles easily, a complicated case involving multiple parties, or a lawsuit against an insurance company for bad faith—our attorneys remain steadfast in our commitment to getting you results.
Our South Miami Lawyers Force Liable Parties To Reckon With Your Truck Injury Losses
A truck driver, company, or insurer might find it hard to ignore that you were hurt yet still fail to acknowledge just how much you were hurt. We have facts on our side. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) points out that the sheer size of a truck makes severe accident injuries more likely. Those include traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries (SCIs), burns, and lost limbs.
We can negotiate a settlement amount that acknowledges and accounts for the severity of your accident. That goes beyond just paying your medical bills—though sometimes that, in and of itself, is a sticking point in negotiations—and includes:
- Past and future medical care, rehabilitation, therapy, medication, and equipment
- Past and future lost income from your recovery and reduced earning ability
- Pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost hobbies, reduced enjoyment of life
Determining how much you were hurt involves determining how much the truck accident in South Miami affected your life. Our South Miami injury lawyers use evidence, negotiation tactics, and legal experience to emphasize the true extent of your losses.
We Do The Same For Fatal South Miami Truck Crashes
Liable parties similarly resort to undervaluing tactics even in the face of a fatal accident. If you lost someone in a South Miami truck accident, our wrongful death attorneys can perform the same work we would do for a personal injury case. In addition to medical and income losses, we can pursue compensation for funeral services to honor your loved one and damages to honor your relationship with them.
You can call us today for a free consultation. We’re ready to hear from you and offer help.
Our South Miami Attorneys Will Update You About Truck Accident Deadlines in Florida
In general, you should act as soon as possible to report and investigate a motor vehicle accident. You have a right to understand how an investigation into your trucking accident unfolds. Insurance adjusters will look into the accident, but our team can do our research to find overlooked evidence and offer another view of the truck collision. The earlier we can do that, the better.
Injured parties filing a lawsuit in Florida typically have two years to do it. That doesn’t mean you have the full two years. Some cases have shortened or lengthened deadlines. For instance, if we file an additional lawsuit against the city of South Miami for poorly maintained roads, we must notify them in six months, not two years. Yet we won’t know about this type of negligence until we investigate, so don’t delay.
Filing a lawsuit also doesn’t mark the end of negotiations. We continue to work toward an agreement with all parties, even after filing. However, we don’t want to lose your opportunity to get damages by missing the deadline, so we file if necessary.
