Truck Accidents

Jacksonville Truck Accident Attorney

Fighting for the Medical Care & Compensation You Need in Duval and St. Johns Counties

With over 30 years of experience (including formerly working on behalf of an insurance company), Attorney Jim Glober has a complex understanding of truck accident litigation. The Glober + Glober Attorneys, P.A. team recognizes that the commercial truck company will send its lawyers and insurance adjusters to the scene of a crash almost immediately in an attempt to mitigate the damaging evidence and control the accident scene.

Therefore, we move quickly to investigate the accident, recover evidence, and prove the negligence that contributed to or caused the accident:

  • Was the truck driver speeding?
  • Was the truck driver fatigued from driving too many hours?
  • Were negligent hiring practices used by the trucking company?
  • Were driver logs and maintenance records accurately maintained?
  • Did defective truck parts lead to a tire blowout?
  • Did an unbalanced load cause the semi to roll over?
  • Did an abrupt halt cause other cars to crash?

Understanding the Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can have devastating consequences, resulting in serious injuries and even fatalities. It is important to understand the common causes of these accidents in order to protect yourself and your loved ones on the road. Our experienced truck accident attorneys at Glober + Glober, Attorneys, P.A. are dedicated to fighting for the rights of victims in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas.

Common causes of truck accidents include:

  • Driver fatigue: Truck drivers often work long hours and may become fatigued, leading to decreased alertness and slower reaction times.
  • Distracted driving: Truck drivers, like all motorists, can be distracted by cell phones, GPS devices, or other distractions, increasing the risk of an accident.
  • Improper loading: When cargo is improperly loaded or secured, it can shift during transit, causing the truck to become unstable and potentially leading to an accident.
  • Speeding: Truck drivers who exceed the speed limit or fail to adjust their speed to road conditions put themselves and others at risk of a serious accident.
  • Equipment failure: Faulty brakes, tire blowouts, or other mechanical failures can cause a truck driver to lose control of their vehicle.

Commonly Asked Questions

What should I do immediately after a truck accident?

After a truck accident, it is important to prioritize your safety and well-being. If you are able, move to a safe location away from traffic. Call 911 to report the accident and seek medical attention for any injuries. It is also important to gather information from the scene, such as the truck driver's name and contact information, insurance details, and any witnesses. Do not admit fault or discuss the accident with anyone other than the police and your attorney.

How can a truck accident attorney help me?

A truck accident attorney can provide valuable assistance in navigating the legal process and advocating for your rights. They can investigate the accident, gather evidence, and determine liability. An attorney can also handle negotiations with insurance companies and pursue a fair settlement on your behalf. If necessary, they can take your case to court and represent you during trial. Having an experienced attorney by your side can greatly increase your chances of obtaining the compensation you deserve.

What damages can I recover in a truck accident claim?

In a truck accident claim, you may be able to recover various types of damages. These can include medical expenses, both current and future, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and rehabilitation costs. Additionally, if the accident resulted in the wrongful death of a loved one, you may be eligible to seek compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and other related damages. Consulting with a truck accident attorney can help you understand the specific damages you may be entitled to in your case.

How long do I have to file a truck accident claim?

The time limit, or statute of limitations, for filing a truck accident claim can vary depending on the jurisdiction and the specific circumstances of the case. In Florida, the general statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including truck accidents, is four years from the date of the accident. However, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after the accident to ensure you meet all applicable deadlines and preserve your right to seek compensation.

Can I still pursue a truck accident claim if I was partially at fault?

Yes, you may still be able to pursue a truck accident claim even if you were partially at fault for the accident. Florida follows a comparative negligence system, which means that your compensation may be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. For example, if you were found to be 20% at fault and the total damages awarded in your case were $100,000, your compensation would be reduced to $80,000. It is important to consult with an attorney to understand how comparative negligence may affect your specific case.

How long does it take to resolve a truck accident claim?

The time it takes to resolve a truck accident claim can vary depending on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the severity of the injuries, and the willingness of the insurance company to negotiate a fair settlement. Some cases may be resolved within a few months, while others may take longer, especially if litigation is necessary. It is important to be patient and allow your attorney to work diligently on your behalf to achieve the best possible outcome. Your attorney can provide a more accurate timeline based on the specifics of your case.
