Pinecrest Truck Accident Lawyer

Large truck accidents have increased by 50 percent over the last ten years. In the mid 2010s, federal regulators issued a series of industry-friendly rules that put victims at risk. This trend continued, and in fact accelerated, when COVID-19 hit. The softer regulatory environment has created a softer enforcement environment. Many safety inspectors now give truckers the benefit of the doubt or look th either way when they violate safety laws.

In contrast, the compassionate Pinecrest truck accident lawyer at Spencer Morgan Law cares deeply about victims and their families. Many of the people on our professional team are truck accident survivors themselves. So, we care deeply about this issue. This passion fuels our purpose. Our purpose includes doing whatever it takes to obtain maximum compensation for your serious injuries.

Pinecrest Truck Accident Lawyers and Truck Crash Injuries

Our compassion starts with a clear understanding of the injuries that large truck collisions cause. Frequently, these injuries are not only catastrophic (life-threatening), but also difficult to diagnose and treat.

  • Serious Burns: Ordinary gasoline and diesel fuel burn at different temperatures. Furthermore, many truck crash victims are pinned underneath wrecked vehicles. As a result, these victims normally sustain severe burns which require extensive, and costly treatment at regional burn centers.
  • Head Injuries: A fully-loaded large truck weighs more than 80,000 pounds. Vehicle safety systems cannot possibly absorb that much force. Therefore, when the extreme motion causes their heads to snap violently back and forth, these victims usually sustain serious head injuries that are normally permanent.
  • Broken Bones: A combination of the force and pressure often shatters bones. Surgeons must use metal parts, like pins and screws, to painstakingly reconstruct these bones. Since truck crash victims are normally in poor physical condition, doctors must stress out these reconstructive operations over two or three more procedures.

The average injury-related medical bill in a truck crash claim exceeds $100,000. Most group health insurance companies exclude injury-related costs, and most families cannot possibly pay these costs out of pocket.

A Pinecrest truck accident lawyer connects victims with doctors who focus on injury-related conditions and, in most cases, charge nothing upfront for their professional services.

What to Expect in a Truck Crash Claim

Most truck crash victims can expect a settlement. Over 90 percent of personal injury claims settle out of court. However, settlement is a process, not a result.

This process begins when a Pinecrest truck accident lawyer determines the claim’s settlement value. The settlement value, which is basically the asking price, is based on:

  • Evidence: Attorneys must prove their claims by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not). Additionally, there’s usually a relationship between the amount of credible evidence an attorney presents and the amount of compensation a jury awards.
  • Law: Truck driver negligence is often straightforward, mostly because Florida law holds commercial operators to such a high standard. However, various defenses, such as comparative fault, could reduce or even eliminate compensation.
  • Preference/Need: Some victims understandably want to resolve these matters quickly, either for financial or emotional reasons. These victims must normally accept lower settlements. Victims who hang in longer usually get larger settlements.

An out-of-court settlement benefits victims in several ways. First and foremost, settlements are final. A trucking company cannot tie up a settlement in appeals courts. Additionally, these resolutions give victims much more control over the outcome.
