Englewood Truck Accident Attorney Lawyers

Help For Englewood Truck Accidents

call today: 941-474-4800

While not as large as nearby cities like Venice or Sarasota, anyone who lives in Englewood knows all too well just how many commercial trucks are on our roads. If you're involved in an Englewood truck accident, it can leave you seriously injured and struggling to recover physically as well as financially. While medical experts will be there to help you with your health, what about your finances? Our team will stand up for you, protect your finances and fight the trucking and insurance companies to make sure they pay.

Do You Qualify For Compensation?

Those injured in an accident involving a tractor trailer can seek restitution if they can show that their injuries were caused as a direct result of the reckless or negligent actions of someone else. This can mean a number of things, including:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving more than legally allowed for commercial truck drivers
  • Failure to obey traffic laws
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to maintain a commercial truck properly

There are several key differences between an Englewood truck accident lawsuit and one involving only a passenger car. The biggest difference is that semi drivers have to follow additional guidelines set forth by the US government. Failure to do so could mean that it's even easier to show that you deserve restitution. However, the only way to be sure is to talk to an expert and get a consultation.

What Damages Can You Receive?

An Englewood truck accident can be incredibly dangerous, and often leads to severe injuries including paralysis, broken bones, and more. If you're injured, you can seek compensation based on numerous types of damages. Some of the factors that will impact your settlement may include the following.

  • Lost wages, including future potential lost wages due to the accident
  • Medical bills as well as future potential medical bills
  • Compensation for your pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages used to punish the person responsible and discourage others from acting in a similar manner

Our lawyers work with experts in economics and the medical field to review your case and determine what a fair settlement amount really is. This way, you aren't left shouldering any of the financial burden of an accident and can instead focus on healing physically after your accident. And since we don't collect any fees until your case is won, you don't have to worry about raising legal fees upfront.

What About The Trucking Company?

In an Englewood truck accident, it's possible that you'll be able to not only seek restitution from the truck driver but the trucking company that they work for. This isn't always true, but if you can show that the trucking company was negligent or reckless you might be able to seek additional compensation. Some examples of how a truck company may be held liable include the following:

  • If they put requirements in place that force drivers to drive more than legally allowed
  • If they fail to properly maintain their vehicles
  • If they offer incentives that encourage unsafe driving
  • If they force drivers to haul loads that are heavier than legally allowed

These are just a few examples, but the bottom line is that if you can show that the trucking company acted negligently, you could receive a settlement from them as well. However, because they have deep pockets and a reputation, they will often try to bully around victims of accidents. Because of this, you need a professional on your side.

Our legal team isn't afraid to stand up to the big trucking companies and insurance firms and fight for your rights. Don't let the big guys push you around while you're trying to recover. Contact us today for your free consultation. If you have a case, we'll be ready to let them know that you mean business and fight hard to get you what you deserve.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
