When a semi-truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the injuries sustained by the car’s occupants can be devastating. Not only do you have to overcome serious, possibly life-threatening and life-altering injuries, but you have to worry about paying for your care until you can return to work. At The Landau Law Group, we want to make this difficult time easier on accident victims and their families.
We can review your case for free. You may be eligible to hold the truck driver and trucking company liable for your injuries and accident-related losses. We can help you pursue just compensation based on the facts of your case. Call us today to get started with a complimentary consultation with a Bonita Springs semi-truck accident lawyer at (866) 703-4878.
We Know How To Prove Fault and Liability in a Bonita Springs Truck Accident
We regularly take on truck accident cases in Bonita Springs, in other Gulf Coast beach towns, elsewhere in Lee County, and throughout southwest Florida. We know the most common causes of truck accidents and how to prove causation and liability in each situation. Let us look at your case and see if you may be eligible to hold the truck driver and trucking company liable.
In our practice, we see truck accidents that occur because of:
- Fatigue, lack of rest, lack of sleep, and poor sleep quality
- Distracted driving
- Speeding, going too fast for conditions, and reckless driving
- Alcohol and drug use
- Failure to check blind spots before changing lanes
- Poor driver training and truck maintenance
- Mechanical problems with the truck
- Improper loading or other load issues
- Other negligent acts
We also help clients who suffered a wide variety of injuries. We understand how stressful a catastrophic injury can be for you and your entire family. Let us fight for compensation while you recover from such injuries as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Burns and scarring
- Loss of a limb or loss of use of a limb
- Other serious injuries
To learn more about your legal options, reach out to us today. We can explain if you are eligible to pursue compensation and get started on your case.
The Landau Law Group Can Navigate the Claims Process or File a Personal Injury Lawsuit on Your Behalf
The Landau Law Group is a service-oriented litigation firm with more than 20 years of combined expertise. We have experience helping semi-truck accident victims recover compensation in Bonita Springs and other nearby areas.
Semi-truck accidents are different from most car accident cases because the driver is not the only potentially liable party. Instead, the trucking company may also be responsible for your accident-related injuries, and they hold much of the evidence we analyze to build your case. This evidence could include:
- The truck driver’s rest logs
- Data from the truck’s onboard computer
- Post-accident drug and alcohol testing results
- Employment records including any previous accidents
- The damaged truck and trailer
- Truck maintenance records
- Information about the load the truck carried
We know how to gain access to this evidence, but we need to get to work quickly to obtain it. Call us today at (866) 703-4878 for your initial consultation.
Recoverable Damages in a Bonita Springs Semi-truck Accident
Every case is different, and there is no way to know how much your case might be worth during your initial consultation. There are, however, some common damages we can recover for our clients in a semi-truck accident personal injury case. These may include:
- Medical care costs
- Ongoing and future care costs
- Wheelchairs, walkers, lifts, or other prescribed devices and products
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Rental car expenses
- Other accident-related expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
As a part of building an insurance claim or to present at a civil trial, The Landau Law Group will collect documentation of your losses and expenses related to your accident and injuries. Only once we complete this process can we put an accurate settlement value on your case. Call (866) 703-4878 to get started with a Bonita Springs semi-truck accident lawyer today.
We Need To Get Started as Early as Possible
Under Florida law, you may have as long as four years from the date of your truck accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, other factors may come into play and alter this deadline. We can help you understand how long you may have during your free case evaluation.
The statute of limitations is not the only reason we need to act quickly. Because the trucking company holds so much important evidence to prove fault and liability in your case, we need to take quick action to demand they preserve it. We also need to be able to build a strong case and attempt to negotiate a fair settlement offer before time runs out to file a lawsuit.
