We Know the Signs of Truck Driver, Company, & Operator Negligence
Liability is a key identifier when negotiating a fair settlement. The liable parties could range from drivers and operators to cargo loaders and mechanics. Maintenance and operational requirements of commercial trucks, such as semis, 18-wheelers, construction vehicles, and big rigs, involve numerous parties. However, each party is only responsible for their degree and percentage of negligence, meaning that not identifying all liable parties could result in an inadequate settlement.
Salter, Healy, Rivera & Heptner has uncovered liability by investigating acts of negligence in car accident cases, including:
Poor hiring practices
Inadequate driver training
Poorly maintained vehicles
Other signs of negligence
The causation of your truck accident is essential for proving liability. Regardless of how complicated your case may be, our Seminole truck accident attorneys will stand by your side throughout the claims process. Our legal team will honor your decisions and act accordingly while offering our advice and guidance based on evidence, the law, and experience.
Florida Law Provides Compensation for Negligent Injuries
Under FL Stat. § 768.81, you can file a claim against negligent trucking companies, drivers, services, cargo loaders, and other liable parties. However, it is critical to understand that trucking accident cases are complex, which can cause you to miss key details that could affect your case’s outcome. Our Seminole truck accident lawyers will conduct a full investigation to ensure that we understand the relevant facts.
Salter, Healy, Rivera & Heptner may use this information to argue for a fair settlement that pays for:
Accident-related medical bills (current and anticipated)
Time missed at work for injuries (including benefits & future earnings)
Physical pain and suffering damages (for exceeding the injury threshold)
Punitive damages (for acts of gross negligence)
Other recoverable civil damages
The amount you can recover after a truck accident is determined by the facts, evidence, and the law. The circumstances of every case are unique, making it challenging to assess the value of your claim. Our Seminole truck accident attorneys will conduct a thorough assessment so that you do not get less than what you deserve for your injuries.
