Miami Springs Truck Driver Fatigue

Few things are as devastating as being involved in a serious traffic accident in Miami Springs or your community. Due to the size and force of a truck, if you are an occupant in a passenger vehicle, it is likely that you will sustain serious injuries. You may even lose a loved one in this type of traffic accident. It can be even more upsetting to learn that the accident was preventable and was caused by something such as truck driver fatigue.

Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence for families across the state, since truck driver fatigue is a common cause of serious traffic collisions on the state's highways. If you suspect that recklessness or negligence played a role in your traffic accident and injuries, contact Flaxman Law Group to get an honest and thorough evaluation of your situation in a free consultation.

A Serious Car or Truck Accident Can Leave You Financially Devastated

For many people, a serious truck accident caused by a fatigued driver leads not only to pain and suffering and serious injuries, but also to substantial financial problems. A truck accident is often very expensive for the survivor. Through no fault of your own, you may have to face:

  • Emergency service bills
  • Ambulance costs
  • Medical bills
  • Surgical costs
  • The cost of medical devices – including the cost of wheelchairs, crutches, braces, and other devices
  • Visits to specialists
  • Transportation costs – such as taxis to visit physicians or car rentals
  • Expenses associated with making your home or workplace or car accessible to you while you recover
  • Assisted living costs
  • Lost income
  • Future medical expenses
  • Medical expenses not covered by your health coverage
  • Future loss of income due to permanent or long-term injury
  • At-home care costs

All of these costs can easily add up. Unless you speak with a personal injury attorney, you may lose out on opportunities to seek compensation from multiple sources in order to get more of these expenses covered.

What can a personal injury attorney do?

Many plaintiffs who have suffered head injuries, spinal cord fractures, amputations, and other serious injuries in a truck or car accident in Miami Springs or another Florida community find that car insurance and health insurance does not necessarily pay for all of the long-term costs of their condition. In fact, it can be difficult for someone who has been severely injured to even estimate how much money they will have to spend in the long-term for their injuries. For these reasons, it is important to get legal advice from a personal injury attorney in Miami Springs or your community before you accept any insurance money or make any decisions about your case. Once you accept a settlement offer or insurance money, you may have signed away some or all of your rights to pursue compensation later on.
