How Truck Accidents Work in Boca Raton, FL

Truck accidents are often much more severe than car accidents, and the claims process is handled quite a bit differently. Since truck accidents involve commercial trucks, more parties can and should be held responsible for damages that occurred from the accident. Liable parties can include the truck driver, the trucking company, and the trucking company’s insurance provider.

After you’ve been involved in a truck accident in Boca Raton, a trucking company’s insurance adjuster will attempt to settle the accident with you outside of court, often offering less-than-satisfactory settlements. You do not have to accept these offers. You may choose to hire a Boca Raton truck accident lawyer to negotiate with the insurance adjuster on your behalf, or you can pursue a legal claim to recover damages through a lawsuit when negotiations don’t meet your needs.

The most common types of truck accident claims:

Injury Accidents

If you’ve sustained serious injuries in your truck accident, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit and claim damages and losses that occurred as a result of the accident. Common injury claims in truck accident lawsuits include but are not limited to:

  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Lost wages and future wages
  • General damages or noneconomic damages, such as mental anguish and pain and suffering

Property Damage

In many cases, truck accidents total the victim’s vehicle, leaving them without a car and large expenses to replace the vehicle. A victim may pursue a property damage lawsuit to recover all related costs, such as repairs and replacements. Property damage claims can also include damage to personal possessions that were inside your vehicle during the accident.
