As we all know, truck accidents can be extremely dangerous and often deadly. So what happens when the size of the vehicles involved are much larger? Unfortunately, the outcome often involves more severe injuries and expensive damages.
Regardless of the severity of the outcome, a truck accident can be a truly devastating experience. If you or a loved one is injured or even killed in a truck accident, getting help from an experienced Delray Beach truck accident lawyer will help you pursue the compensation you may be entitled to. At Elstein Legal, we can help!
Work Quickly After a Truck Accident
After a truck accident, you may need to work quickly. Insurance companies need information as soon as possible to investigate the accident and determine the compensation you may be entitled to. Doing this work while trying to recover from a truck accident can be exhausting.
Unfortunately, Florida is a no-fault state. This means that even if another party was responsible for causing an accident, your insurance will still be on the hook for a certain amount of your lost wages and medical bills. To make matters worse, insurance is a business like any other. These companies strive to protect their bottom line and will likely offer you as little as possible.
A Delray Beach truck accident lawyer will have your back and ensure that you won’t go through the process alone. The sooner you start on your case, the sooner you can begin working towards an adequate settlement that addresses your unique needs.
Truck Accident Injuries
Truck accidents have a range of potential causes. They include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Operating a truck without adequate qualifications
- Distracted driving—a relatively common problem in the smartphone age
- Poor road conditions
- Vehicle defects
- Lack of proper vehicle maintenance
Truck accidents can also lead to lost wages and—depending on your occupation—potentially threaten your job security.
For example, let’s say you suffered a broken leg as a result of a truck accident. In this scenario, you will likely be in a cast, walking on crutches, and possibly even confined to a wheelchair. If you work in construction, a commercial kitchen, or anywhere else where you’d need to be on your feet for extended periods of time, you probably won’t be able to work.
As a result of your injuries, you’ll be forced to stay home until you’re fully recovered. During this time frame, you may struggle to reach your normal earning potential and make ends meet. With adequate legal representation, you can fight for compensation that extends beyond your basic medical bills.
