Accidents happen.

Life’s not fair. And bad things happen to good people.

Maybe you got into a car crash because of an irresponsible drunk driver.

Or you had a ‘slip and fall’ in a grocery store because the store owners didn’t put up the proper caution signs.

Usually, it’s just a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Regardless of how the accident happened, it wasn’t your fault.

But the reality is:

You’ve suffered a serious injury and you’re in pain.

You have medical bills to pay.

As well as insurance adjusters breathing down your neck during one of the most traumatic periods in your life.

Depending on how bad your injury was… you may even have to take time off work, resulting in lost wages.

And because of your injury, completing simple day-to-day activities has become a major hassle.

At best, your life is inconvenienced for a few weeks while you deal with the pain and temporary handicap.

You deserve justice. You deserve to be compensated.

Generally, the driver of the big rig, the owner of the tractor and the owner of the trailer all may be potential defendants. The driver may or may not have assets. He or she probably is working for a company. If he is an independent contractor, the attorney will look at the extent the company supervised him, among other things. The owner of the tractor and/or trailer may be vicariously liable for the driver's negligence under the doctrine of respondeat superior. Also, there may be a negligent hiring or negligent retention claim against the owner of the tractor and/or trailer. If the driver was impaired by alcohol (DUI), there also may be a claim against the people who served him the alcohol. There may be multiple, separate insurance policies for each defendant.
In Florida, 2 years for a wrongful death trucking accident claim and 4 years for a regular negligence claim.
This is where a lawyer helps. You will probably never see a dime if you try to represent yourself. Without an attorney, the insurance company will take advantage of you. Knowledge of current law is essential. After looking at who may be liable, a truck accident lawyer will look into available insurance. Where is the money? Often, the big rig insurance policies cover bodily injury limits with a minimum of $750,000. These limits are very low and have been the same for many years.  The insurance bodily injury limits need to be substantial because weight always wins. The average tractor trailer weighs over 80,000 pounds. That is equivalent to the average car traveling at 5 times the speed. The bigger they are, the harder they are to steer and stop.  After figuring out potential defendants, available insurance and theories of liability, the big rig tractor-trailer lawyer will get the medical records, medical bills, hire experts like an accident re- constructionist as needed and send out a demand for money. The demand for money may include money for medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity in the future, future medical bills, pain and suffering and future pain and suffering. The attorney may have to sue the driver, the owner of the big rig and the owner of the trailer.
These statistics are averages and have been rounded up, but they will give you a general idea of big rig tractor-trailer statistics. Large trucks are 4 times as likely to cause occupant deaths than are other passenger vehicles. If the accident results in a fatality or catastrophic injury, it is almost always the driver of the car who is killed or injured – generally, over 70% of the deaths were occupants of another vehicle. Truck drivers themselves are injured, on average, less than 20% of the time.  Approximately 4,000 people are killed each year from trucking accidents. Also, approximately 100,000 people are injured in trucking accidents each year. The numbers go up and down each year.  In 2012, there were 3,428 fatalities, 194 involving large trucks (tractor-trailers) in Florida. Most big truck accidents happen Monday through Friday in the daytime. While trucks account for approximately less than 10% of the total number of vehicles involved in traffic fatalities, 1 out of 9 deaths result from tractor trailer accidents.  Truck drivers have deadlines for delivering loads. As a result, sometimes they speed. They may also keep driving when they need to sleep. They may take stimulants to stay awake. These factors can contribute to accidents involving big rig trucks and tractor-trailers.  Statistics and causes aside, the emotional, physical and financial devastation can last a lifetime for the victim and their families.
