The Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys at Anidjar & Levine frequently represent individuals who have been seriously injured as a result of truck and big rig accidents. The firm also represents the families of loved ones who lost their lives after these types of grievous collisions.
When a large truck or big rig collides with an automobile or motorcycle, the results can be grim. Passengers and drivers of smaller vehicles often sustain traumatic and painful injuries due to the substantial size difference between the vehicles involved in the accident. The experienced personal injury attorneys at Anidjar & Levine may be able to help those involved in truck and big rig collisions obtain fair compensation for resulting medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and permanent physical disability.
Most lawsuits in Florida arising out of a truck or big rig accident are based on the legal theory or negligence. Generally speaking, a negligent driver is one who fails to drive reasonably. When unreasonable driving results in a collision, injured parties may be entitled to compensation from the unreasonable driver.
Automobile collisions can be the result of a variety of factors, and sometimes multiple parties can accept some blame for one accident. For this reason, it’s important to note that Florida law recognizes the theory of “comparative negligence,” which means that an injured party may still be entitled to compensation, even if he or she was partially at fault. For example, under comparative negligence, an injured party who was twenty percent at fault for the accident could recover about eighty percent of his or her damages.
