Pensacola Truck Accident Lawyers
Working to Recover Accident Victims Their Full Compensation
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with a large truck, you may have the legal right to sue for compensation. At Michles & Booth, we have seen firsthand the immense harm these crashes can cause. That’s why we are committed to helping truck accident victims in the Florida Panhandle understand their rights and recover the compensation owed to them.
What Lawyers Look for in a Truck Accident Case
When you contact a lawyer, the first order of business will be to determine liability for the truck accident and assess the severity of your injury. Since Florida requires all drivers to have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, the state only allows accident victims who have suffered severe injuries to file suit against at-fault parties. In the law’s eyes, a “severe injury” is any condition that jeopardizes the patient’s health or causes serious impairment or dysfunction to any bodily function, organ, or part.
A few examples of severe injuries that would warrant a truck accident lawsuit include:
- Spine injuries
- Third-degree burns
- Brain and head injuries
- Partial or full disability
- Wrongful death
Investigating the Cause of a Truck Accident
Typically, a lawyer will reconstruct the accident, investigate evidence, and consult other experts in the field to identify the cause of the accident and the party behind it. Most often, the following parties are found to be negligent and, therefore, liable for truck accidents:
- A trucking company: if a trucking company ignores industry regulations, such as if it overloads its trucks with cargo, fails to adequately train or screen its employees, or requires its truck drivers to work long hours
- A truck part manufacturer: if a defective truck part was to blame for the crash
- A third-party business: if a trucking company was hired to transport cargo for another business
- A truck driver: if a truck driver is found to be guilty of reckless driving, such as speeding, distracted driving, intoxicated driving, driving while fatigued, and more
- Another motorist: if another motorist is guilty of driving recklessly instead of the truck driver
If you suspect that your truck accident was caused by another’s negligence, don’t hesitate to consult an attorney. Take advantage of our free consultations. Should you qualify for and pursue a lawsuit, you could recover compensation for your damages, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, reduced future earning potential, etc.
