You may need a lawyer to represent you after getting into a truck accident in Florida. Many truck accident victims are in great deal of pain, focused on recovery, and cannot handle the demands of insurance claims and lawsuits. These victims decide they need a lawyer to protect their rights and fight for a fair financial recovery.

If you decide you need to hire a Florida truck accident lawyer, consider hiring one from our firm. We have more than 40 years of experience representing truck accident victims. 

Why Some Truck Accident Victims in Florida Decide They Need a Lawyer

Out of nowhere, truck accident victims suddenly face injuries and uncertainty they were not prepared for. It is understandable to ask for help with the obligation of an insurance claim or lawsuit. You may want to hire an attorney to take legal action against a negligent truck driver if:

  • You are pressed for time: Your world does not stop because you have been in a commercial truck accident. Your personal obligations remain, and now you must also deal with injuries and other accident-related tasks. With time in short supply, you may be unable to handle your claim or lawsuit.
  • Your recovery is the priority: Even if you can handle your case, you could compromise your recovery. You owe it to yourself to focus all your time and attention on improving your health. By working with a personal injury attorney, you can ensure that recovery comes first.
  • Our firm will pay for your case: There are also financial benefits to hiring a law firm, regardless of your case’s outcome. Our firm will pay every cost associated with your case, including the cost of any experts we hire to help. Because we have a long track record of success, we can spare no expense on our truck accident cases. We will only receive a fee if we secure compensation for you.
  • A lawyer’s experience can be valuable to you: You may recognize that a lawyer’s experience and legal training bring value to your case. Rather than learning about insurance claims and lawsuits (and then leading your case), you can rely on our team’s experience and knowledge.  
  • You are not confident about representing yourself: Truck accidents can cause expensive damages. When it comes time to secure the compensation you need, you may not be comfortable representing yourself. This is a strong enough reason to hire a Florida truck accident attorney from our team.

Some clients need a Florida wrongful death lawyer because they have lost a loved one to a fatal truck accident. In these cases, grieving family members hire an attorney to lead negligence cases while they process their loss and take care of their loved one’s final arrangements.

What a Florida Truck Accident Lawyer Can Do for You

A truck accident lawyer from our firm will be solely responsible for your case. We manage every detail of our clients’ cases, including:

Communications, Paperwork, and Administrative Duties

The smallest detail of a truck accident case can make a massive difference in the outcome. Our attorneys and paralegals will:

  • Handle all communications with insurance companies and others in your case
  • Draft and file important paperwork and meet critical case deadlines
  • Provide all documentation to insurers
  • Fact-check all information related to your case

We will also inform you of any steps you must take to move your case forward, such as providing a statement to insurers.

Evidence Collection

We will secure evidence that supports your claims and proves liability and truck driver negligence, such as:

  • Eyewitness accounts of the truck accident
  • Video footage of the truck accident
  • The police report documenting the collision
  • An expert’s reconstruction of the accident
  • Other relevant evidence

Such evidence may help us prove who is liable for your accident and, by extension, your accident-related damages. It is possible that your case could involve multiple liable parties.

Documentation of Damages

A Florida personal injury lawyer will document your accident-related damages with:

  • Photographs of injuries
  • X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and other images of injuries
  • Medical bills
  • Evidence that you have lost income while being unable to work
  • Invoices for repair or replacement of your vehicle
  • Receipts for temporary transportation
  • Experts’ diagnoses of injuries, mental health conditions, and any other health problems from the accident

We can employ investigators to help us build compelling documentation of your damages. 

Settlement Negotiations

Our team will demand that liable parties cover your accident-related damages. Because motor vehicle accidents can cause severe injuries totaling thousands of dollars in hospital bills, lost income, and more, our lawyers take a relentless approach to settlement negotiations.

Trial (When Necessary)

If liable parties are unwilling to offer a fair settlement, we will take your case to court.

A Truck Accident Lawyer Will Lead Your Case for Compensation for Damages

We will aim to secure fair compensation for all your accident-related damages, which may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Loss of income and benefits
  • Mental health treatment
  • Vehicle repairs or replacement
  • Temporary transportation

If you have any other losses, we will account for them. We will also complete a detailed accounting of damages caused by a loved one’s death. Whatever harm you’ve suffered, trust Bogin, Munns & Munns to pursue the entire financial recovery you deserve.
