Who Is Liable for a Miami Truck Accident?

If you were the victim of a truck accident, contact an experienced attorney who can help you collect accurate compensation for medical expenses, lost income, emotional trauma, suffering, and pain, etc. The attorney can correctly determine the liability of either the driver, the company, the manufacturer, etc.

In the past few years, Miami has frequently appeared on the top of the lists of cities with the highest number of trucking accidents. Trucks are more likely to be involved in serious multi-car crashes than other passenger cars and are known to shatter many lives due to the severe damage they can inflict on the victims.

If you were the victim of a truck accident you can receive economic damages in the form of medical expenses, hospital bills, income lost due to missed work, emotional trauma, lost future earning potential, suffering, and pain or loss of enjoyment of life, determined based on the severity of the injuries suffered.

Steps in Investigating Truck Accident Cases

Investigating truck accidents requires having specialized knowledge and working closely with experts to guarantee that all the particulars are discovered and properly analyzed. Holding the correct party/ parties responsible for the damage is of paramount importance.

The first thing to do is to hire an experienced lawyer who can help you get compensation for your injuries and financial damages. To make it easier for the attorney to win the case and, therefore, more money as compensation, the victim of the accident should immediately ask for a medical examination. This way there will be proof that the injuries suffered were caused by the crash.

If you were the victim of a commercial truck accident and the trucker was employed by a trucking company, your lawyer might decide to sue only the trucking company. But remember, this is possible only if an employment relationship can be established between the trucking company and the truck driver. The company can be directly held responsible for the driver's negligence.
