Daytona Beach Truck Accident Lawyers

Whether you are driving on a local road, an avenue, or a major interstate highway like I-95, heavy trucks and tractor trailers are everywhere. Your passenger car can seem insignificant when compared to a fully loaded tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer can weigh more than 25 times your car's weight. It's no wonder that passenger cars are the usual losers in truck accidents.

From a legal standpoint, accidents between you and a truck can be complicated. While the accident could have occurred in Daytona Beach, the truck could be registered in another state and the trucking company itself could be incorporated in a completely different state. The truck driver's license may have been issued in a state different than Florida. The load that might have shifted in the truck, which in turn caused the accident, might have been packed by a second company in another state. Your accident may have occurred while you were traveling out of the immediate area or perhaps in a faraway state.

All these factors make any accident scene investigation and the Discovery Process more difficult. The Discovery Process is the procedure in which documents and other important information that is related to the case are obtained from the other parties involved in the accident. This is why you should obtain legal advice from a Daytona Beach truck accident lawyer who has dealt successfully with these issues on a multitude of occasions. Seeking the advice of an attorney can be very beneficial, and may increase the overall amount you receive for damages or injuries which you have sustained as a result of the accident.

If you have been involved in a truck accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation. Such compensation could include:

  • Payment for hospital stays
  • Payment for physicians
  • Payment for rehabilitation services
  • Payment for lost wages

  • Payment for property damage
