Accident & Injury
Orlando Truck Accident Lawyer
While more automotive accidents occur per year than truck accidents, the effects that a truck accident creates are much stronger. A truck accident can cause a larger number of damages and injury/deaths due to the sheer size and weight of the truck. A 1-ton vehicle traveling at 40 miles per hour and a 5-ton truck traveling at 40 miles per hour exert a very different amount of force upon impact. For these reasons most people will call upon an Orlando truck accident lawyer to handle their case, as it can prove more complicated than regular auto accidents.
Often times trucks are carrying hazardous materials or chemicals as well, and if a spill occurs as part of the accident, the situation can become further complicated and multiply the amount of damage.
Not only would the truck driver be an affected party, but so would the company the driver works for, the corporations that own the good that were carried inside the truck, and any and all parties that were affected.
In these instances, it is highly recommended to call and experienced Orlando truck accident lawyer so that they can fight for your rights and work to obtain damages.
While the police and attorney arrive at the scene it is very important that you take pictures of the damages, obtain contact information for all of the parties involved and the witnesses.
There have been may cases in which the truck company and truck driver try to deny any fault in the accident and limit any if all the amount of money that should go towards covering your injuries or loss.
This is why having a trusted Orlando truck accident lawyer is so important for your case. The attorney must prove that you are entitled to receive compensation when all the other parties think otherwise.
An attorney can help you obtain video camera footage, interview any and all witnesses, review medical records, interview staff, speak with accident scene experts and review the police reports which is a tremendous asset.
