The Villages Truck Accident Attorneys

What You Need to Know About Trucking Accidents

Trucking accidents are typically the result of someone being negligent. On the one hand, a driver is negligent when their speeding, texting while driving, or failure to stop results in an accident. On the other hand, a trucking company can be held negligent when they fail to take the necessary steps to ensure that the truck is safe to operate.

Regardless of who is negligent, the result of a trucking accident is that someone is seriously injured. In fact, injuries sustained from a trucking accident tend to be some of the most serious, if not life-threatening, and often involve the neck, back or brain.

Besides these very serious bodily injuries, victims of trucking accidents often suffer from such damages as:

  • Significant medical costs for the treatment of injuries
  • Expenses for ongoing care and treatment for all future treatment related to your trucking accident injury or injuries
  • Costs of repairing damaged vehicle
  • Loss of wages due to not being able to work in your previous job
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of spousal support

According to the law, you have the right to receive compensation for all of your injuries and damages. Unfortunately, actually receiving what you are due is not guaranteed. In fact, there is a good chance that people are taking steps right now to make sure you are not fully compensated. For instance, the trucking company’s insurance carrier will do everything it can to prevent you from getting the compensation you are due.

This is why it is essential that you seek the advice and support of an experienced trucking accident attorney. With a trucking accident attorney like James O. Cunningham on your side, you will be equipped to come to the negotiating table with a clear understanding of the law and how it applies to your unique situation.
