Why Is It Important To Hire a Truck Accident Attorney in Daytona Beach?
Truck accidents often involve complex legal and technical aspects. And because Florida is a no-fault state, meaning you must file a claim with your own insurance company before seeking compensation elsewhere, you may likely be entitled to more than what your PIP insurance covers. That makes hiring an experienced attorney important to protect your rights and increase your chances of a favorable outcome in the form of a settlement or verdict.
What Is the Pure Comparative Negligence Rule in Truck Accident Cases in Daytona Beach?
The pure comparative negligence legal principle allows for compensation even if you are partially at fault for the accident. However, your compensation may be reduced proportionally to your degree of fault, which is another way of saying that you’ll only recover what you’re not responsible for. And since there’s no standard way of measuring the percentage of fault, it all narrows down to your attorney’s negotiation skills and ability to prove the other party’s negligence.
How Can I Hold a Trucking Company Accountable for an Accident in Daytona Beach?
To hold them accountable, you must prove their negligence. That also means gathering strong evidence, consulting experts, recreating the accident scene if needed, reviewing medical records, and so forth. Thankfully, with our attorneys by your side, you can rest easy knowing that we have the resources, experience, and knowledge to build a powerful case on your behalf.
What Different Parties Can Be Liable for a Truck Accident?
In a typical truck accident case, liability may fall on many different parties, including but not limited to:
- The truck driver, if their negligence, such as speeding, distracted driving, fatigue, or impaired driving, contributed to the accident.
- The trucking company that employs the driver if their policies, training, or maintenance practices played a role in the accident (vicarious liability).
- A third party that owns the trucking company, if applicable.
- The companies responsible for maintenance and repairs of the trucks if their negligence contributed to the accident.
- The manufacturer or distributor of the truck or its components, if the accident occurred due to a defective part.
- Cargo holders may be responsible if the accident was caused by improper loading or securing of the cargo.
- Poor road design, inadequate signage, or lack of proper road maintenance may indicate that certain government agencies may be liable.
