Providing The Experienced Guidance You Need After A Truck Accident
If you or a family member has been injured by a large commercial truck, you must choose the right law firm for your case. Trucking accidents are more complicated than passenger vehicle accidents. The injuries are often catastrophic or fatal, and you will be facing the trucking company and its insurance carrier.
No one should try to manage a trucking accident case on their own. You need attorneys who have considerable experience with these matters. At Collier & Associates in Plantation, we represent people who have been injured or lost a loved one in a Florida truck accident. Our primary attorneys each have 30 years of experience. You can be sure that we know how to help you and your family through the aftermath of these serious accidents.
Why Experience Matters In Trucking Cases
In regular car-car accident cases, the negligent and liable parties are typically the driver and his or her insurance company. When a commercial vehicle such as a semi is involved, however, you may be seeking compensation from the driver, the trucking company and their commercial insurance policies. This is not something you want to handle by yourself. Each party will have a lawyer, or teams of lawyers, fighting to protect them and deny fault for the accident. You need an attorney on your side to protect your interests.
We know how to take on the liable parties in these cases, regardless of their size or assets. While we often seek to resolve cases via negotiation, we will be prepared to go to trial if that is necessary.
What Type Of Recovery Are You Facing?
Accidents involving large trucks tend to cause severe or fatal injuries, leaving the injured and their families in a difficult situation. Injuries common to trucking accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Crush injuries
- Burn injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
Recovery from these types of injuries is typically long and painful. Multiple surgeries may be necessary. People may also need long-term care for years. These issues will change the lives of not only the accident victim but the lives of their families as well.
It is important to understand the battle you and your family may have ahead of you. We can help you prepare for the future by seeking the maximum compensation you are entitled to receive for medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
