Determining the Liable Party
As with many personal injury cases, the most involved portion of constructing the claim is determining who is liable for the incident.
In trucking accidents, the following parties could be wholly or partially liable:
- Driver of the truck
- Employer of the driver
- Owner of the truck
- Company leasing the truck
- Owner of the leasing company
- Manufacturer of any involved components
What is Your Attorney’s Role?
Your Panama City truck accident attorney assists in establishing the liability for the damages you have sustained. We collect evidence to substantiate your claim and ensure the defendant does not incorrectly represent the facts. Trucking companies typically launch into damage control immediately after an accident, following a protocol set in place by their insurance company. Your attorney conducts their own investigation into the particulars of the accident and the record of the company and driver in question. We do our best to make sure your voice is heard and you are treated fairly throughout the proceedings.
Hesitation is Detrimental
There is a statute of limitations in Florida that limits the time you have to file a claim against another party. Furthermore, each day you wait to contact an attorney after being injured in an accident is another day the trucking company has to undo the evidence of damage and reduce the benefits available to you. The years of experience our firm has in personal injury law has given us a deep understanding of these types of claims. We know which direction to take your personal case to secure the compensation you deserve.
