How To Seek Out-of-State Truck Accident Compensation

Your auto insurance follows you to all 50 states, so no matter where your truck accident happened, you are covered. For most Florida residents, this means that you must first exhaust your no-fault insurance policy before you can pursue damages from a liable party in an out-of-state car accident

If you have severe injuries and medical expenses that exceed your personal injury protection (PIP) limits, with our Ocala personal injury lawyer you can seek compensation from an at-fault driver via a liability insurance claim or lawsuit. 

The truck driver should have a commercial auto insurance policy that meets federal requirements, Florida’s requirements, or the requirements of the state where the collision occurred. The amount of insurance the truck driver has will also depend on the size and weight of the vehicle and its cargo. 

However, commercial insurance policy minimums are usually higher than those carried by passenger vehicle drivers because of the damage a large truck can inflict in a crash.

Recoverable Truck Accident Damages

The size and weight of a fully loaded semi, construction vehicle, tractor-trailer, or other commercial truck can cause catastrophic and fatal accident injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord injuries, and organ damage. Because of this, victims may face expensive medical bills, time off from work, and physical, mental, and emotional suffering. 

If your wreck was not your fault, you and your family should not have to shoulder the financial burden. You deserve compensation for your economic and non-economic damages, and our Ocala out-of-state truck accident lawyers can help you pursue full and fair awards. Recoverable losses may include the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages, earnings, and employment benefits
  • Lost future earnings and lost earning capacity
  • Vehicle and personal property damages
  • Household services
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Lost quality of life

We can also help you recover compensation and seek justice after the wrongful death of a loved one.

Proving Truck Accident Liability 

Whether your accident happened in Ocala or out-of-state, to win compensation from the at-fault parties, you must prove their negligent or reckless actions led to your injuries and damages. Depending on the circumstances of your crash, those liable may include the following:

  • Drivers. All motorists owe others on the road a duty of care. For truck drivers, this duty includes adhering not only to standard traffic laws but also to specific rules and regulations for commercial motor vehicles. When drivers speed, drive drunk, violate state or federal Hours of Service laws, or engage in other negligent behaviors, we can hold them financially accountable for accidents they cause. 
  • Trucking companies. In many cases, trucking companies are vicariously liable for the actions of their drivers and employees. We can also hold trucking companies liable for their own wrongful actions, such as failing to train drivers, failing to administer mandated drug and alcohol screenings, or setting unreasonable and dangerous delivery schedules. 
  • Cargo owners. We can pursue compensation from the owner/loader of the truck’s cargo if falling goods, an unsecured or shifting load, or an overloaded truck or trailer caused your collision. 
  • Truck owners/entities in charge of truck maintenance. Whoever owns the truck, whether it is the driver, the trucking company, or a third party, has a duty to maintain the vehicle. If a mechanical or auto parts defect caused your crash, they may be liable. Liability may also rest with a mechanic, maintenance facility, or manufacturer. 

We Will Build Your Claim or Lawsuit

Truck accident cases can be complex, and building a robust claim takes a lot of time and effort. If the other entities involved are from out of state, it will likely complicate things further.

  • Send spoliation letters to the trucking company demanding evidence in its possession, like vehicle maintenance records or the truck’s “black box” data recorder
  • Prepare and file your insurance claim or lawsuit and manage all case-related paperwork
  • Handle phone calls, meetings, and emails with insurers, opposing counsel, and other involved parties
  • Aggressively negotiate for the compensation you deserve

How Long Do You Have to Pursue Your Out of State Truck Accident Case? 

The state where your truck accident occurred will usually have jurisdiction over your case. However, you may be able to file a lawsuit in another state if it is one where the liable party does business. 

In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits is two years, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11. If you do not pursue your lawsuit within this time limit, you may be unable to recover compensation. We can help you get started before it is too late.
