If you’ve been injured in an accident in Lakeland, contact our team today for a free case review.

Lakeland's high number of commercial trucks means that an accident with one could occur at any time. And if you're injured by a tractor trailer, you could be left struggling financially as well as physically. Our lawyers know that recovery can be a long, difficult, and even scary process. That's why we fight tirelessly for you. We help the injured, not the powerful, and we'll stand up to the trucking companies and their legal teams to make them pay.

Can You Seek Compensation? 

Under Florida law, you're allowed to seek compensation for your injuries if you can show that they were caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another party. In a Lakeland truck accident lawsuit, some additional factors may be considered reckless or negligent beyond just the basic factors of a crash involving passenger cars. This is due to the additional regulations and rules that commercial truck drivers must abide by.

Here's a look at some of the things that could be considered reckless or negligent in a trucking accident:

  • Speeding
  • Driving recklessly
  • Drunk driving or driving while on drugs
  • Texting while driving or other distracted driving
  • Failure to obey all signs, laws, and signals
  • Hauling a load that is heavier than legally allowed
  • Driving more than legally allowed of commercial truck drivers

If any of these factors contributed to your crash, you may have the right to compensation. There are also other reckless or negligent activities that may be a factor as well. Our lawyer will help you understand your rights, and then we'll take care of the entire process of getting what you're owed. We will always fight to get you the most after an accident.

What Damages Are You Owed?

If you're involved in a crash with a semi, it can have a huge impact on your health and finances. As such, a fair settlement should provide damages for a number of things including:

  • Lost wages
  • Future potential lost wages
  • Medical costs
  • Future potential medical costs
  • Compensation for pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

Our experts consult with economists and medical professionals to look at the long-term costs of your accident, and then develop a settlement amount that is fair. We'll then use that to negotiate a settlement. If a settlement can’t be reached, we will head to court and fight for your rights. This way, you aren't left shouldering any of the financial obligations that come about as a result of your injuries. And you won't pay us a dime until we win your case and get you your money.

What About The Trucking Company?

One interesting aspect of a commercial truck accident lawsuit is the fact that not only can the driver be held liable, but so can the trucking company they work for in certain cases. This is true if it's shown that the trucking company had policies, procedures, or other actions that may have forced or inspired the driver to act unsafely. Some examples of this are:

  • Policies that force drivers to drive beyond legally allowed limits
  • Forcing drivers to haul larger than legal loads
  • Incentives that reward drivers for output that could inspire them to speed or drive illegally
  • Failure to maintain vehicles properly
  • Quotas that forced drivers to operate beyond legal limits of driving, speed, and more

In short, if the trucking company's actions contributed to the accident, you might be able to seek compensation. This could mean a larger settlement, but it may also mean that you have a harder time getting compensation.

The reason for this is that trucking companies have deep pockets, and will often do all that they can to prevent you from getting your restitution. Their resources and legal teams may bully you around. We don't let that happen. If you're injured in a trucking accident, we will stand up and fight for you and ensure you aren't bullied around and that you get the compensation you deserve.

We're ready to take the fight to them, so contact us today.
