Act Now, Before Your Deadline Passes
Statute of limitations laws set strict deadlines for when lawsuits must be filed by. Allowing your statute of limitations to pass likely means you forever lose the right to pursue compensation for your truck accident. Most states have a deadline of just two years from the date of incident for personal injury claims.
Florida gives victims a full four years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit.
This is often great news for out-of-state victims who worry their time to receive financial justice may have passed. If your loved one was tragically lost in a truck accident, you have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side
Following a harmful crash, it can be tempting to accept a quick settlement from the truck driver's insurance company. This is very rarely in your best interest.
It is the insurance company's job to minimize their losses, not to offer adequate compensation. Even speaking to them is unwise, since insurance representatives often try to obtain out-of-context statements that can be used against crash victims. If you are contacted by the insurance company, direct all communication to our New Smyrna Beach truck accident lawyers. We know how to protect you and keep your best interests at heart.
Our Roads Are a Known Issue
Our local government has acknowledged that high-risk roads in New Smyrna Beach must be addressed. For example, a portion of Orange Street was converted into a one-way because the road experienced such a high volume of car accidents. In the first 6 months of 2022 alone there were 10 different crashes on this one stretch of road.
It is the government's responsibility to maintain safe driving conditions. This includes fixing potholes, properly marking hazards, and providing proper drainage systems. If you believe that your truck accident was caused by the government's failure to protect you, our attorneys can hold local authorities responsible for your harm.
Commercial Trucks Engage In Dangerous Work
Commercial trucks are used to complete important work. Unfortunately, much of this work is inherently dangerous and risky. On October 24, 2022, a tanker that was siphoning fuel at a Texaco gas station on S. Dixie Freeway became engulfed in flames. The blaze injured three individuals, two of whom were rushed to the hospital for medical treatment. Not all truck accidents involve passenger vehicles. If your harm was the byproduct of an incident similar to this, you should reach out to our law firm.
