How Much Will It Cost to Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer

It may be worth hiring a truck accident lawyer if:

  • You or a loved one was harmed in a truck accident.
  • You want to seek compensation for your accident-related losses.
  • You don’t want to handle the claims process alone. 

Hiring a truck accident attorney ultimately gives you more time to spend with your loved ones. It’s also worth noting that many attorneys work on a contingency-fee basis, so you pay nothing out of pocket for their services.

Why Consider Hiring a Truck Accident Lawyer 

Ultimately, it’s your decision whether to hire a truck accident lawyer. However, you may consider partnering with an attorney because: 

They Will Determine Who Is Responsible for Your Losses 

Even though a trucker may have caused your accident, their employer may be responsible. This is because of a legal principle called “vicarious liability.” Employers are vicariously liable for their employees’ actions. 

Through an investigation, we may find that one or more of the following parties should pay for your losses: 

  • The trucking company: Trucking companies must ensure their drivers abide by state and federal regulations. 
  • A parts manufacturer: If a faulty vehicular component caused your accident, we can pursue damages from the manufacturer. 
  • A government agency: Municipal agencies must keep roadways free of harm. Otherwise, they can be held financially accountable. 

They Will Handle Everything Your Case Requires 

When you partner with a lawyer, they will: 

  • Document your accident-related losses 
  • Determine your accident’s cause 
  • Identify the at-fault and liable parties 
  • File your insurance claim 
  • Gather evidence 
  • Negotiate a settlement 
  • Advocate for your rights in court 

Your lawyer will also manage the various deadlines surrounding your case. For instance, Florida’s statute of limitations (Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)) generally gives you four years to file a lawsuit. Your lawyer will keep you abreast of any deadlines and manage them accordingly.  

They Will Pursue the Compensation You Need

Your attorney has one goal: to recover compensation for your collision-related losses. After reviewing your circumstances, they will pursue: 

  • Lost income, tips, and benefits 
  • Pain and suffering
  • The cost of medical care
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Diminished earning power
  • Disability 
  • Scarring and disfigurement 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 
  • Funeral expenses 
  • Loss of consortium 
  • Physical therapy/mental health counseling 

They Will Protect You from Bad Faith Insurance Practices 

Not all insurance companies process claims in good faith. Some will go to extreme lengths to deny injured claimants what they deserve. Yet, with a lawyer on your side, you won’t have to worry about the insurer taking advantage of you. 

Your attorney will shield you from these bad faith insurance practices: 

  • The insurer denies your claim without a written reason why. 
  • The insurer offers less compensation than you’re owed. 
  • Your claim is passed around from adjuster to adjuster, delaying the process. 
  • The insurer doesn’t respond to your messages or phone calls. 
  • The insurer pressures or bullies you into accepting a settlement. 

You have rights that protect you from these unfair practices. Your lawyer will uphold all of them.   

Do I Need to Hire a Lawyer to Represent My Truck Accident Case?

We’re going to be honest with you: hiring a lawyer is purely optional. You have the right to represent yourself and handle the claims process alone. However, the American Bar Association (ABA) advises against this because many pro se claimants don’t

  • Fully understand the cost of their damages 
  • Know what to expect from the legal process 
  • Have the resources to validate their allegations 
  • Understand how Florida law applies to their cases 
  • Know how to combat bad faith insurance practices
