Hialeah Truck Driver Fatigue

If you have been injured in a serious traffic accident in Hialeah or anywhere in Florida, it is important not to make any decisions right away – at least until you talk to a personal injury attorney. Truck accidents caused by truck driver fatigue tend to be catastrophic. Fatigued drivers can lose control of their vehicle, may drift into an oncoming lane, or can crash their trucks in such a way that people are seriously or fatally injured. If you've been seriously injured, you deserve all the facts – including facts about why the accident happened. Unfortunately, motor carriers may not want to admit that a truck driver was driving past their hours of service limits or was fatigued or otherwise behaved recklessly. It is often important to speak with a personal injury attorney in order to understand how much your injuries are truly worth and what options you do have.

Are you ready to speak with a personal injury attorney in Hialeah or your community about your injuries and accident? You can always reach Flaxman Law Group to arrange for a free consultation to discuss your situation with a personal injury attorney. Our personal injury attorneys have a track record of successfully helping thousands of personal injury plaintiffs across South Florida get compensation for their injuries.

How Severe Are Your Injuries?

The injuries sustained in a serious truck accident may be more severe than you realize and may be more expensive than you think. Truck drivers who are tired tend to causing devastating injuries by crushing smaller vehicles in an accident. Unfortunately, passenger vehicles have little or no chance against a fully loaded commercial big rig or tractor trailer. If you have been injured in this type of traffic accident in Hialeah or your community, it is common to have serious injuries, including:

  • Paralysis
  • Disfigurement or facial injuries
  • Amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash for soft tissue injuries
  • Head injuries or brain injuries
  • Fractures
The Costs of Being in a Serious Truck Accident in Hialeah

A permanent or serious injury can end up costing you tens of thousands of dollars and in some cases it can end up costing you millions of dollars in lost income as well as a lifetime of medical care. Unfortunately, even if you have car accident insurance and medical insurance, it is unlikely that insurance carriers will pay for the full cost of rehabilitation, property damage, lost wages, future lost earnings, future medical expenses, and all of the many incidental expenses that go into paying for a serious truck accident injury. In fact, many plaintiffs find themselves not only fighting for their lives and trying to get better but they find themselves involved in an insurance dispute in Hialeah or their community after a serious accident.

Unfortunately, insurance carriers, while they promise to help you if you are injured, are in the business of making money. They make the most money if they get premiums while paying out less than the full amount for every injury.
