Venice Truck Accident Attorney Lawyers

Help For Venice Truck Accidents

call today: 941-496-9555

Thanks to our close proximity to Sarasota and the plethora of strip malls and urban centers throughout its borders, Venice is regularly visited by countless commercial truck deliveries. And while most of these deliveries are made without issue, the fact is that sometimes a truck accident can occur.

Truck accidents can be incredibly serious, and leave you struggling physically and financially. Our lawyers stand up to the trucking companies on the other side to make sure you get justice for your injuries and the compensation you're owed. We don't back down from a fight, and we'll be your tireless advocate until you get what you deserve.

If you're involved in a Venice truck accident, it can be difficult to make a full recovery. The size and weight of a semi-truck means that trucking accidents carry a higher risk of causing some of the most serious injuries, including:

  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Permanent disability
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Death

The more serious injuries that are more likely in a truck accident also come with heavier medical bills and longer recovery times. That means that you'll have a more difficult financial recovery to deal with as well. Contacting a Venice truck accident attorney by calling or messaging our office is the best way to ensure that you are able to make a full financial recovery.

Do You Have The Right To Compensation? 

Under Florida legal statutes, motorists involved in an accident of any nature have the right to seek compensation for their injuries if they can show that the diver of the other vehicle acted in a way that any reasonable person would recognize to be reckless or negligent. There are additional factors involved in an accident involving a tractor-trailer since they must follow government regulations. Failure to do so means that they could also be held liable - and potentially face criminal charges as well.

Some examples of actions considered reckless or negligent include the following.

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving or driving while high on drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to obey all applicable traffic laws
  • Driving more than the legally allowed number of hours in a specific time period
  • Hauling a load that is beyond the legal weight limit

Each of these factors could tell your attorney that you deserve compensation, and our team will consult with you while also accessing all evidence possible - police reports, mobile phone records, driver logs, company history, and more - and then use that info to show that you deserve compensation.

What Damages Could You Collect? 

The specific damages you receive can vary from case to case. However, there are a few key points that your Venice truck accident attorney will use to get a clearer picture of what you should receive after your crash. These include:

  • Lost wages you missed due to the accident
  • Medical bills
  • Future estimated lost wages
  • Future estimated medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering compensation
  • Punitive damages

Your attorney will work with economic and medical professionals to review your situation and determine the right settlement amount based on your scenario. We take care of the entire process, letting you rest and recover while we take the fight to the other side.

What About The Trucking Company?

One big difference when a crash involves a semi-truck is that in certain situations the tucking company the driver works for may also be held liable for damages. This is true if they have policies or procedures in place that force drivers to drive in an unsafe manner, such as:

  • Requiring that drivers haul loads too heavy to be legal
  • Not requiring drivers to maintain a log of their mile so hours
  • Policies that essentially force drivers to exceed legally set driving limits
  • Failing to maintain their fleet of trucks for safety
  • And more

While this can mean that you have a greater chance to receive a higher settlement for your injuries, it also means that you'll have a trucking company with deep pockets and endless resources on their side. Often, this means that they'll fight harder when it comes to paying a settlement.

When you contact us, that bullying stops. Our Venice truck accident attorney has a reputation for standing up to insurance companies and truck companies, and you can rest easy knowing that we'll make sure you get the compensation you're owed.

We stand up to the powerful and defend the rights of the injured, and we'll make sure you get the largest possible amount for your injuries. Contact us today to let us fight for you.

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.
