Damages You Can Recover After a Wekiva Springs Truck Accident
Every truck accident is different. Therefore, you will recover damages based on the circumstances of your case. Still, common forms of compensation victims can pursue include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage expenses

Because truck accident injuries can be so debilitating, you should focus on treating them instead of figuring out the legal process.
Leave your case in our firm’s hands. Our lawyers serving Wekiva Springs can handle every aspect of your case, including:

- Requesting access to the truck’s dashcam footage, the truck’s maintenance records, and logbooks
- Compiling and organizing evidence
- Establishing the at-fault and liable parties
- Communicating with involved parties
- Entering into negotiations to procure a fair settlement for you
- Filing your case in compliance with Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) and Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)

All of this assistance will be available for a contingency fee, so we won’t ask for any upfront, out-of-pocket, or hourly payments.

Causes of Truck Accidents in Wekiwa Springs
The truck driver is often at fault for a truck accident. Some ways they could have acted negligently include:
- Driving while drunk
- Failing to check blind spots
- Driving fatigued
- Driving distracted
- Improper lane change
- Failing to yield
The accident may have multiple liable parties, as the truck driver may not be solely at fault. Other parties who could have contributed to the crash include:
- The driver’s employer
- A government agency
- The truck’s manufacturer
- The cargo company
Proving Negligence in a Truck Accident
To recover damages, you have to show how the other party’s negligence caused the crash. To illustrate:
- The other party owed you a legal duty of care, meaning they should always act in a manner such that they do not cause harm.
- They breached this duty of care. This element is where the negligence takes place.
- This negligence caused a truck accident, which harmed you.
- This accident has led you to suffer measurable damages. You can prove your damages using medical records, wage statements, and other receipts.
Injuries Sustained in Truck Accidents
Because of a truck’s size and weight, they can cause serious injuries in a crash. Some of the injuries commonly sustained in truck accidents are:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Broken bones or fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn injuries
- Lacerations, bruises, and internal bleeding
Some injuries may not be apparent after the accident. This is due to the body’s production of adrenaline as a response to the stress caused by the accident.
Steps to Take After a Truck Accident
The first thing you should do if involved in a truck accident is to seek medical attention. Call 911, and report to the police that you have suffered an accident. When the police arrive, they will write up a report that details how the accident happened, who was involved, and other information.
Then, gather evidence of the truck accident. You should take pictures or videos of the accident if you can. Move some distance away from the road and stay in a safe place to avoid the risk of being in another accident. Collect the personal details of the other parties involved in the accident, as well.
