Drivers who are involved in an accident with a truck should get legal advice as soon as possible — before you discuss the matter with an insurance adjuster or sign any paperwork. Insurance companies and trucking companies may try to reach a quick settlement to limit their financial responsibility. We urge you to contact one of our experienced Florida truck accident lawyers today to fight for your legal rights and ensure that you receive the full compensation that you deserve.
While the truck driver may be the most obvious person at fault in an accident, the driver may not be the only person or business entity legally responsible for the accident. Motor carrier companies, trailer owners, contractors and insurance companies may have a legal obligation to compensate you for your injuries. In some cases, the shipper of hazardous materials carried by the truck may also be liable.
