Orlando Commercial Truck Accident Attorney

Commercial vehicles come in various shapes and sizes, but what they all have in common is that the individual behind the wheel must operate the vehicle safely. Drivers who drive while tired, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or recklessly are not only endangering their lives but also the lives of all commuters on the road. As these automobiles are generally larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, the damage they can inflict in a collision can be immense.

Those injured in commercial vehicle accidents must not only worry about affording the piling medical bills but also vehicle repair bills while daily financial responsibilities remain a priority. As the injured party in a commercial vehicle accident, you have the right to pursue compensation from the liable party.

The Orlando commercial vehicle accident lawyers at The Umansky Law Firm can analyze the facts fo your case and pursue legal action on your behalf.

  • Moving vans
  • Grocery trucks
  • Delivery vans
  • Ambulances
  • Garbage trucks

Recent Case Result

The Umansky Law Firm represented a retired executive that suffered severe injuries as a result of an automobile accident. Before the accident, our client was under the care of a cardiologist for a pre-existing heart condition. Due to the injuries he suffered during the accident, our client had to undergo neck surgery. After the surgery, while in the post-operation area, our client suffered a heart attack. The insurance company argued that our client had pre-existing degenerative changes in his spine and was in his late sixties. After thorough investigation and negotiation, we convinced the insurance company that the stress of the neck surgery caused the heart attack and that the neck surgery was directly related to the accident. Our client was awarded $275,000 in full coverage limits from the at-fault insurance company and from our client’s uninsured motorist insurer.verdicts & settlements page.

Whether you were hit by a moving van or a pizza delivery car, filing an injury claim involving a commercial vehicle can be complicated. An injury claim including any commercial truck is very different than those involving privately owned vehicles. You may be suing a large corporation or the government. Violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations may need to be explored. It is imperative to consult with an attorney who is looking out for your best interests.

Commercial Truck Accident Injuries

The unfortunate reality of vehicle collisions is that there is always a possibility of those involved to suffer severe injuries. Although high-speed accidents may not inflict the same injuries as low-speed accidents, if they negatively impact your quality of living and financial well-being, you deserve to pursue compensation for them. Common commercial truck accident injuries include:

No matter the perceived severity of your injuries, don’t hesitate to seek medical attention. People often feel fine immediately after an accident and begin experiencing pain days and even weeks later. By getting a medical evaluation as soon as possible after the accident, the physician can identify anything that looks suspicious, allowing you to include the estimated cost of treatment into your list of damages.

Recovering Compensation for Accident-Related Damages

Identifying liable parties is crucial in a commercial auto injury case. Our attorneys will establish who is liable: the driver, the employer, the owner of the vehicle, or another party? We will determine if the driver has a commercial drivers’ license (CDL) and if the truck complied with federal regulations?

Our goal is to see that you receive the maximum possible amount of financial compensation for your injuries and help you through this trying time. Our commercial truck accident lawyers can help you secure compensation for:

  • Medical equipment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Past, present, and future medical bills
  • Ongoing rehabilitation and medical care
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity

The only way to secure compensation for these damages and many more is by first consulting with a seasoned attorney.
