Coral Springs Truck Accident Victims May Receive Compensation For Their Accident Injuries 

If you have sustained injury in a trucking accident in Florida, you may receive compensation for your accident injuries under personal injury law. Personal injury law protects individuals who have been harmed because of another person’s negligence. Injured victims may file a personal injury claim to recover compensatory damages. Compensatory damages — which are intended to restore the injured victim to the condition they were in prior to the accident — may include any of the following:

Some losses that are sustained are exact, such as the total cost of medical treatment. Other losses — such as pain and suffering or the loss of one’s life enjoyment — are immeasurable. The Florida courts will consider several factors and assign a value for these losses. 

Multiple Parties May Be Held Responsible for Truck Accidents in South Florida 

Filing a claim for a truck accident is more complicated than filing a standard vehicle accident claim because — in a truck accident — multiple may be held responsible. For example, the following entities may be accountable: 

Having multiple parties who are each somewhat responsible for the truck accident complicates the accident claims process. The experienced truck accident attorneys at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. successfully navigate the complexities of personal injury law to hold all responsible parties accountable for your injuries.

If You Are Partly At Fault For Your Coral Springs Truck Accident Your Compensation Will Be Reduced

If you are partly at fault for your truck accident you may still recover compensation for your injuries and losses, but your compensation will be reduced. Under Florida’s “pure comparative negligence  fault” rules, the amount of damages you would receive will be reduced by an amount that reflects your level of responsibility for the accident. 

Simply stated, if the compensation you are entitled to receive for your truck accident injuries is $10,000, but it is determined that you are 20 percent responsible for the accident, then your compensation will be reduced by 20 percent —  $2000 — for a total compensation of $8,000.
