Commercial Vehicle Accidents
Commercial Truck Accident Personal Injury Lawyers Of Northeastern Florida
When two or more cars are involved in an accident, whether or not there are injuries depends greatly on their relative speeds. When one of the vehicles involved in a crash is a commercial vehicle, however, the huge disparity between the weight of the truck and the car almost guarantees injuries, regardless of the velocity. If you have been injured in an accident with a commercial truck, the personal injury attorneys of the Law Office of Craig Gibbs can help you recover your financial losses. Even a minor to moderate injury can result in hospitalization, medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The financial costs of a more serious injury can be astronomical. Speak to one of our personal injury attorneys to find out what you can do to recover your damages.
Commercial Vehicle Collisions in the State of Florida
If you are driving a car and are struck by a business’s tractor-trailer or semi, you might be amazed at how quickly you are offered a settlement. It’s not uncommon in Duval, St. Johns, and the other counties in Northeast Florida, for an insurance adjuster or lawyer to drive right to the crash scene or hospital to make you an offer to cover your medical expenses. The initial offer will sometimes even seem quite generous, but these settlements always come with the requirement that you sign a waiver of your right to seek further compensation for your damages. Our experience at the Jacksonville Law Office of Craig Gibbs is that initial settlement offers are usually a fraction of the amount that you will eventually receive in a settlement negotiated by one of our professional P.I. attorneys. Our recommendation is not to accept money or sign any insurance company’s document before speaking to a personal injury lawyer.
