Davie Braking Failure
The Department of Transportation (DOT) reports that close to 30% of all commercial trucking accidents involve brake failure. Unfortunately, 18 wheelers, big rigs, and other commercial trucks are especially subject to braking failure because of the size of the vehicles as well as the heavy cargo that they carry. Truck drivers and trucking companies are expected to correctly maintain their brakes and regularly inspect them to keep everyone on the street safe. If brakes lock up or fail, serious truck accidents in Davie and other cities often occur, resulting in death or serious injury.

If you have been seriously injured in a traffic accident in Davie or have suffered a personal injury through someone's negligence or recklessness, is important to hire an attorney right away. You want someone who will fight vigilantly for your rights and will help protect your rights to fair compensation and justice in your case.
Even if you have excellent insurance, insurance in many cases may not be enough. Unfortunately, insurers are interested in making profits, and they routinely undervalue claims or fail to give out maximum compensation that is possible under the law. If you accept a smaller compensation offer, you may find yourself having to pay tens of thousands of dollars or even more out-of-pocket for uncovered medical expenses, unexpected lost time at work, and other expenses.Long-Term Costs After a Car or Truck Accident
If you have been seriously injured, it is important to think long-term. Your long-term expenses can include:
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages and future lost income opportunities
- Counseling or therapy
- Future medical expenses
- Unexpected medical expenses related to your injury, caused by complications or other issues that you may not be able to predict right now
- Medical devices
- At-home care or assisted living facility care
In addition to the above, there may be many other expenses that you and your family may face. Working with a personal injury attorney can ensure that you seek out fair compensation so that you do not have to pay for all of these expenses by yourself if you qualify for a legal claim and compensation under Florida law.
