Clearwater Truck Accident Lawyer
You probably rely on large trucks more than you think. In fact, if you take a look around your home, you’ll quickly notice that nearly all of the items within your home, ranging from your food to your furniture, made it your way via a large truck.
Trucks are important, and truck drivers work hard. But that doesn’t mean that accidents don’t happen and that when they do, whoever’s at fault shouldn’t be held liable for the damages that result. At the office of The Pawlowski//Mastrilli Law Group, our Clearwater truck accident lawyers can help you to pursue damages if you’ve been in a crash. Call us today to learn more about how we can help.
Who’s to Blame for a Clearwater Truck Accident?
When a truck accident happens and people are injured, suffering property damage, or both, the at-fault party needs to be identified. This way, a claim for damages can be made against the at-fault party’s liability insurance. One of the things that’s complicated about a truck accident is that there are multiple potentially at-fault parties. These include:
- The truck driver;
- The trucking company;
- A third-party driver;
- The shipper or loader of cargo;
- The truck or truck part manufacturer;
- The party responsible for road maintenance; or
- The victim of the crash (driver of passenger car, pedestrian, motorcyclist).
How to Prove Fault
When you hire our Clearwater accident lawyers, one of our primary responsibilities will be that of identifying the cause of the accident, the at-fault party, and actually proving it. We do this by:
- Traveling to the scene of the accident and gathering all evidence and data relevant;
- Talking to eyewitnesses, responding police officers, the trucking company, and the truck driver;
- Hiring accident reconstruction and other experts;
- Talking to vehicle design and road specialists; and
- Taking any other necessary steps to build your case.
When you’ve been in a crash and are coping with serious injuries, the knowledge of having someone on your side who can build your claim and work on your behalf can be very comforting. Our lawyers want to fill that role for you.
Damages You Can Recover
Truck accidents can be very serious, leaving those involved with permanently impairing injuries. When this is the case, you maintain the right to step outside of Florida’s no-fault system and bring forth a claim for damages directly against the responsible party. By doing this, you can seek compensation for all of your losses, including your noneconomic damages. We will work hard to build your case and improve your chances of recovering compensation for your medical expenses, property damage costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and more.
We Urge You to Act Quickly
Being involved in a truck accident is terrifying. While filing a claim may be the last thing on your mind, acting quickly is important. Time is ticking on your right to file a suit, and evidence may be destroyed if you don’t act now.
