Truck Accidents in Davie, FL
While most truckers are skilled, highly trained drivers, the fact remains that their vehicles can cause irreversible damage. When 18-wheelers, for example, get into accidents, they tend to cause massive property damage and major bodily injury. It is usually not the truck and its driver but the other vehicle and its occupants who bear the brunt of the impact.

At Ben Crump Law, PLLC, we want to help you fight for both the economic and the noneconomic compensation for which you might be eligible.

When we sit down to conduct your free, no-obligation case evaluation, we will tabulate the losses you have incurred and try to come up with a dollar value for your claim. In previous cases, we have helped truck accident victims win awards ranging from the thousands all the way up to the millions.

The Liable Parties
Once you decide to move forward with us, we will get right to work, beginning with investigating every facet of your accident and identifying the responsible party or parties. The following parties are often liable for truck accident injuries:
The Truck Driver
If the truck driver was breaking any traffic law at the time of the accident, or they were acting negligently in any way, we can use that information to hold them liable. In addition, truck drivers must follow industry regulations on such items as rest hours, truck maintenance, and so forth. They must keep an up-to-date logbook detailing their compliance in these areas. We can subpoena their logbook and determine if it is inaccurate, incomplete, or if it provides evidence of a rule violation.
The Trucking Company
In Florida, trucking companies often have vicarious liability for the actions of their drivers, particularly if the driver in question was operating in the capacity of their job at the time of the accident. We may be able to pursue the trucking company for additional compensation for your injuries.
The Truck Manufacturer
We can pursue the truck manufacturer for damages if a flaw or defect in the truck caused or contributed to your accident.
The Statute of Limitations
Florida has a four-year statute of limitations on truck accident lawsuits, but this timeline may vary based on many factors. A Davie truck accident lawyer from Ben Crump Law, PLLC will let you know of any impending deadlines of which you should be aware. You do not want to let the statute expire on your case, as this will cause you to forfeit your right to compensation.
If a family member passed away in a truck accident, you typically have two years from the date of the crash to pursue a wrongful death action.
If necessary, the Ben Crump Law, PLLC team can file a lawsuit on your behalf to prevent the statute from expiring. To speak with a member of our team today, call us at 800-630-9229.
