Our Newberry Truck Accident Attorneys Take Charge of Your Injury Case
Now is the time to focus on your health and well-being. In the meantime, we’ll manage your case and everything it entails. To secure fair compensation, we will:
Investigate the Details of Your Newberry Truck Accident
Our legal team works with accident reconstruction specialists to gain further insight into claimants’ collisions. We pick apart the scene of the accident to uncover physical evidence, capture videos of the event, talk to eyewitnesses, and review the trucker’s maintenance logs.
With the information we find, we aim to show that:
- Another party (such as an individual trucker) had a duty of care, meaning they were expected to drive with reasonable caution and prudence.
- Another party violated their obligation through their carelessness, recklessness, or omission.
- The other party caused the accident in which you suffered severe injuries.
- You have losses, such as medical bills and lost income, from the incident.
You don’t have to worry about proving the elements of negligence or even really understanding what they entail. With our team, you get to put your full focus on feeling better. We take care of the legal process.
Evaluate Your Injury-Related Damages
When you walk away from the claims process, we want you to have every dollar you deserve. To this end, we evaluate the full cost of your injury-related losses, requiring us to:
- Consult with economists, life planners, and other relevant experts
- Add up your injury-related bills, receipts, and invoices
- Speak with your doctors regarding your injury’s severity
You may have concerns about how we’ll calculate your non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. Here, we evaluate the extent of the accident’s effect on your life, along with other relevant factors.
File Your Personal Injury Claim and Negotiate With the Insurance Company(s)
Filing your claim requires us to understand the liable policy, the cost of your damages, and the cause of your accident. If the insurance company doesn’t immediately agree to the terms of our demand letter, we can proceed to trial.
Prepare for Trial and Represent You in Court
We have two pieces of good news:
- Most truck accident cases never see the inside of a courtroom. That’s because, more often than not, injured people recover damages through insurance claims.
- Our experienced truck accident lawyers feel right at home in front of a judge and jury. If your case makes it to trial, we handle depositions, cross-examinations, and other related matters.
We just need one thing from you: prompt action. Per Florida law, you only have two years to file your injury lawsuit. The more time that passes between the accident and you getting started, the weaker your case could become.
What’s more, the legal system refuses to hear cases filed outside the two-year deadline. With that in mind, we encourage you to call us as soon as possible.
Our Newberry Lawyers Seek Financial Compensation for Your Losses
A compensation settlement or verdict may cover your economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are those with specific associated costs, and non-economic damages are those with subjective values. Financial recovery in your Newberry truck accident case may include:
Truck accidents can cause astronomical medical bills––all of which are recoverable. We work with your healthcare team to learn the costs associated with:
- Ambulance transport
- Emergency room care
- Hospital stays
- Medical devices
- Medical equipment
Whether you suffered a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or another life-altering condition, we’re here to recover the full cost of your treatment expenses.
Catastrophic injuries may prevent you from taking care of your children, performing household chores, or meeting other day-to-day needs of your home and family life. You may have to pay others for these services during your recovery. With documentation, we can include these costs in your injury case.
Property Damage Expenses
Given the size disparity between cars and big rigs, your vehicle will likely have sustained significant damage during the accident. We can seek the cost of your car’s repair or replacement value.
Loss of Income
After an accident, you need time to recover from your injuries. This usually means you cannot work or you may need to find a less demanding position. Our truck accident attorneys serving Newberry account for your lost tips, bonuses, wages, commissions, and benefits.
Non-Economic Damages, Such as Pain and Suffering
As noted, non-economic damages do not come with specific dollar values. We will help to determine a value and fight to recover compensation for your:
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
Your personal injury attorney will stop at nothing when pursuing the negligent party for compensation.
Our Newberry wrongful death lawyers know that compensation can never undo the hardship of losing a close loved one. Yet, financial recovery can offer a way to pay your bills and give your loved one the end-of-life celebration they deserve. Compensation could help cover funeral expenses, final medical bills, and pain and suffering.
