Tractor Trailer Accidents
Commercial truck drivers work long hours driving large vehicles and are often prone to fatigue, increasing their risk of colliding with other vehicles. Because trucks have a larger impact than passenger vehicles during a collision, the results can be especially devastating.
Trucking accident victims may experience serious personal injury, financial setbacks, and sometimes even death. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, Hudgins Law Firm can help. Our law firm has investigated many truck accidents throughout Florida, and we have the experience and knowledge to represent you.
Victims who survive a truck accident may have major injuries requiring years of recovery or a lifetime of care. Victims may incur medical expenses, loss of future earnings potential, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment. In wrongful death claims, we represent family members in recovering damages for lost income, loss of companionship of the loved one, and emotional distress.
Many victims of auto, motorcycle, and truck accidents in Florida try to handle their own personal injury cases, hoping that the insurance companies involved will settle promptly and fairly. Unfortunately, not all insurance companies respond in that manner, and this is one of the reasons you need a Florida tractor-trailer accident lawyer on your side. Sometimes the insurance companies only pay attention to their obligations to their stockholders and policyholders, not to people injured in a Florida car accident.
