Truck and Van Accident

When you are injured in a trucking accident, you may be entitled to significantly more compensation than insurance offers. The best way to find out is through a one-on-one consultation at the Fort Myers or Naples office of Kelleher Law. Call 239-351-2142 to schedule a free case review today.

Liable Parties in a Truck Accident

There can be several liable parties in a truck accident – some of whom may not even be in the state in which the accident occurred. Having an attorney conduct an investigation helps to ensure each of these parties is identified and held to account.

Possible parties in a truck accident lawsuit include:

  • The trucker
  • The trucking company
  • The loading company
  • Parts and equipment manufacturers
  • Mechanics
  • Government entities

When multiple factors play a role in an accident, multiple defendants is a possibility. Each of these defendants will have legal representation and insurance companies working on their behalf. Who will you have working on yours?

Truck Accident Damages

Damages that can be sought following injury from a truck accident include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Home modifications
  • Adaptive technologies
  • Physical pain
  • Emotional duress

Pain and duress, also known as pain and suffering, are seldom included in insurance settlements. In fact, over the past several years, insurance companies have established a pattern of delaying or denying fair compensation to victims of serious injury, making legal action not just a good idea, but necessary in some cases. 

If you suspect you are owed damages beyond the offerings of an insurance company, talk to one of our experienced Florida truck accident lawyers to see if we can help. We are here to review your case free of both cost and obligation, to provide honest and useful information about your rights and options, and to stand by your side as we fight for justice.
