How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit for My Florida Truck Accident Injuries?
Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) says that you generally have four years to take legal action against the negligent party. For wrongful death cases, Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d) sets the limit for filing the lawsuit to two years, typically. You could file this kind of lawsuit if your close family member passed away from their truck accident injuries.
If you miss the deadline, the law can bar you forever from seeking compensation for your losses. Instead of getting the money damages you deserve from the careless party who injured you, you could end up having to pay your medical bills yourself. Do not get tricked by the insurance company into missing the deadline. If you do, the defendant and insurer will not have to pay you any money.
Can I Get Money Damages for My Wesley Chapel Truck Accident Injuries?
Yes, when people get injured because of someone else’s carelessness, they can usually seek compensation for their losses. Here are some types of money damages people often pursue after getting injured in a truck accident:
After a severe injury from a truck accident, one will likely miss some time from work for medical treatments and recuperation. If you did not receive your full regular wages or salary, you might have a claim for that financial loss.
Diminished Earning Capacity
Truck accidents can result in lasting impairments. If you have to take a lower-paying position or cannot work as many hours because of ongoing problems like weakness, pain, or loss of function from your injuries, you have experienced an economic loss.
Typically, you can recover the reasonable cost of the medical treatment you needed for your injuries. Things like the ambulance, trauma center, hospital, doctors, and medical procedures can be in this category.
Because of their great weight and size, big rig collisions can cause catastrophic injuries that leave a person unable to live independently. Whether from a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, or some other type of wound, the individual might need daily assistance with medical treatments and personal care.
Some kinds of losses do not come with convenient ways to measure them in dollars, like receipts and invoices. These losses can make you eligible for compensation. Pain and suffering, disfigurement, and other intangible losses could be a part of your claim, depending on the facts of your situation.
Truck crashes cause many fatalities. If your close family member died because of injuries suffered in a big rig collision, we might be able to pursue a wrongful death claim seeking additional compensation for the legal beneficiaries.
Can a Truck Accident Lawyer from Your Firm Help My Injury Case?
Here’s what you can expect by partnering with our truck accident team serving Pasco County:
We Will Investigate Your Case
Our team will investigate what caused your accident. The cause of the accident will help determine who the liable parties are and their extent of liability. We will find and use the police report, traffic camera footage, and the truck’s black box data to assert your right to compensation.
We Will Calculate Your Injury-Related Losses
To get a fair settlement or court award for your losses, we must examine what your losses are worth. We will do this by consulting with economists, gathering proof of your losses, and adding up your bills, invoices, and receipts.
We Will Manage Your Claim/Lawsuit and Everything It Requires
Filing a successful claim or lawsuit is more than requesting compensation and waiting for a response. It involves gathering evidence, reviewing all paperwork for completion and accuracy, and communicating with the involved parties.
Whatever your case requires, the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine will take care of it. We strive to provide case-specific services that meet each client’s situation.
Who Can Get Sued for a Pasco County Truck Accident?
The party whose negligence caused the accident that injured you can be liable for your losses. Let’s say that a truck driver caused a collision because he drove while impaired by alcohol. You could take legal action against the driver.
Sometimes you can sue more than one party. For example, if the trucking company failed to perform a legal duty and that carelessness contributed to the collision, you might be able to seek compensation from the trucking firm.
Imagine that the truck driver had DUI convictions that the employer did not discover because they failed to do a background check when they hired the driver. Its negligence allowed the driver to be in a position to drive drunk and injure someone, so it can be liable.
What Can I Do to Protect My Right to Compensation?
To protect your right to compensation, you should consider:
Taking a Break from Social Media
Anything you post online could be used to refute your case. Even something innocent, like a picture of yourself at a child’s birthday party, could impede your right to damages. That’s because, if the claims adjuster sees your posts, they could use them as evidence to contest your injuries’ severity.
If you don’t want to discontinue social media, we urge you to recheck your privacy settings. Ake sure that only your friend and family members can see your information––and not just anyone who types your name into a search engine.
Getting Medical Help
Seeking medical care does more than set your treatment plan in motion; it provides evidence to support your right to damages. Supporting information could comprise:
- Your imaging scan results
- Photos and videos of your injuries
- The dates of any follow-up appointments
- Your prognosis and diagnosis
Don’t delay getting medical help because you’re concerned about cost. If successful, compensation in your injury case could account for your past, present, and future damages.
Refusing to Give a Recorded Statement
After filing your claim, the insurance adjuster may ask you to give a recorded statement. Giving such a statement does not help your case in any way. Instead, it gives the claims adjuster the chance to nitpick your words and take them out of context. Your lawyer will give the insurance adjuster all the information they need to move forward with your claim.
