Automobile & Trucking Accidents
When you or your loved ones are needlessly injured in a motor vehicle or trucking accident by the carelessness of another driver, the law allows for the injured person, and often a spouse, to be compensated for their pain, suffering, medical bills, and any loss of income or ability to earn money in the future.
Our attorneys at Weinstein & Cohen have years of experience handling all types of vehicular and trucking accidents, including vehicle crashes, commercial vehicle crashes, motorcycle, single-vehicle accidents, vehicle manufacturing defects, drunk driving, and uninsured drivers, defective streetlights, and improperly maintained roadways, among others.
Commercial Truck Accidents
Whenever a passenger car is involved in an accident with a commercial truck, the odds of injury and death are extremely high for people in the car. Because of the size of these multi-ton tractor-trailers and semi-trucks, physical injuries are usually much more severe than if the accident was only with cars. These types of accidents are very serious and can cost the parties involved hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical care and treatment, or more.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, one out of every nine U.S. traffic deaths results from a collision involving a large truck. Unfortunately, almost 75% of the fatalities that result from crashes involving these trucks are the occupants of the smaller automobile.
Commercial truck drivers must have special training, driver’s licenses and follow specific state and federal regulations that standard automobile drivers do not have to go through. These regulations are stringent in order to ultimately protect the semi driver and other drivers on the road. Therefore, any licensed truck driver who fails to follow these regulations increases the likelihood of a severe injury event.
Since the trucking industry is so highly regulated, we think it’s essential to have an experienced trucking attorney who can navigate through the federal regulations and standards for your case. We understand that it takes a considerable amount of knowledge, resources, and time to investigate and prepare for a large truck accident claim adequately. This is because it’s most important to ensure that the victim’s rights are ultimately protected. With serious cases like these, it is often necessary to hire experts in the fields of:
- Crash reconstruction
- Data interpretation
- Human factors
- Trucking safety regulations
When dealing with crashes involving smaller private passenger vehicles it can also result in serious injuries or death. For example, a smaller private passenger car can range from a 2,500-pound car to a 5,000-pound SUV. Even though automobiles are smaller than semi-trucks, these cars are usually driving at high speed and can be just as serious and catastrophic.
Our truck collision attorneys in Florida understand what needs to be done to investigate your truck crash claim properly. We know the traffic laws that apply to commercial vehicles and the requirements that semi-truck drivers must follow. It’s our responsibility to help victims with trucking and hauling companies that break the laws and standards.
Cases that our attorneys have handled cover nearly every conceivable injury that could arise from Automobile & Trucking Accidents, including death, paralysis, fractures, spinal cord injury, neck and back injuries, brain damage, scarring, and burns. This brings us to the next issue, paying for medical expenses.
An automobile or tractor-trailer accident can change your life in a split second. For example, you could be going to work, and all of a sudden get into a wreck and are seriously injured, you may have to take time off from work quickly, and you may have unpaid medical and/or hospital bills well after the incident took place. One of the first questions that go through people’s minds after Automobile & Trucking Accidents is, “who will pay for the medical expenses?”
It’s worth it to know that personal injury claims can take months or even years to resolve, so it’s essential to not rely on any personal settlement proceeds or a jury award to pay for any immediate needs, like injuries. To make matters worse, if you don’t have some form of health insurance available to cover these immediate expenses, it can be a rough ride for a considerable amount of time. We think it’s worth pointing out that a healthcare provider will often agree to treatment if there is also an agreement to pay them back eventually. Our attorneys can also help with these types of situations, so you can get the proper help medical treatment you need. At the same time, your claim is being investigated, evaluated, and negotiated by us.
We can help you get the money you deserve, including lost wages, medical and surgical bills, pain and suffering, loss of a loved one, or other damages. Furthermore, our team of expert economists and workforce rehabilitation experts work with our attorneys to develop a comprehensive report showing a future economic loss to obtain more considerable recoveries from Automobile & Trucking Accidents.
