Florida Truck Accident Lawyers Representing Injury Victims in Largo
Nobody who lives in Largo or visits the area to enjoy its beaches or retail establishments expects to get seriously injured in a truck accident. However, it is important to know that truck crashes can happen anywhere. Semi-trucks deliver goods to stores and restaurants in the Largo area, and they are involved much too often in collisions on US 19 and even on local roads. Since 18-wheelers are so much larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, occupants of cars and SUVs frequently suffer devastating injuries in truck crashes.
If you or someone you love got hurt in a trucking collision, you should speak with a Largo truck accident lawyer today.
Getting the Facts About Largo Trucking Collisions
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) provides facts and figures that help to demonstrate the seriousness of large truck collisions:
- Nearly 4,900 people died in truck crashes in 2017, and more than 4,100 died in trucking collisions in 2018;
- Majority of people killed in truck accidents are smaller vehicle occupants;
- More than 100,000 injury accidents involving large trucks happen every year; and
- Large trucks are involved in more than 350,000 collisions involving property damage on an annual basis.
Truck accidents have many different causes, and a variety of parties may be liable in a truck crash case. Given that each trucking collision has its own particular facts, you should always have an experienced lawyer assess the merits of your case and help you to understand your options for taking your case forward.
Contact a Truck Accident Attorney in Largo
If a negligent truck driver or a trucking company is responsible for your serious injuries, it is extremely important to begin working with one of our Largo truck accident attorneys on your claim. When insurance coverage is insufficient to compensate you for your losses, you could be eligible to file a truck accident lawsuit. While many individual motorists in car accident cases do not often have substantial assets from which they can pay a large damages award in a car accident lawsuit, the same is not true of truck collisions. In many truck accident cases, truck owners or trucking companies can be held liable, and they tend to have deep pockets from which to provide injury victims with compensation.

Common Questions About Truck Accidents in Largo, FL
What are Subrogation Rights?
Subrogation rights are when someone pays benefits on your behalf as a result of a car accident case. It gives them the right to recover those benefits back from the at-fault driver. The most common subrogation rights we deal with are health insurance carriers. If they pay for some of your medical expenses, then they have a right to be reimbursed from the at-fault driver’s insurance, which is your settlement. You really should hire an attorney to make sure you comply with these subrogation rights, because we work with the health insurance companies to reduce the amount of money that you have to pay back to them.
What Constitutes Pain and Suffering in a Florida Auto Accident Case?
Here are some examples of what constitutes pain and suffering in a Florida auto accident case: physical pain, emotional trauma, limitations on daily activities, limitations on abilities at work, depression, scarring, disfigurement, and any kind of post-traumatic stress disorders.
What Documents Should I Bring to My Attorney?
We like you to bring the driver’s exchange of information that the police officer gives you at the scene. We also like you to bring any photographs of damage at the scene. Also bring your health insurance cards and your auto insurance cards or declarations page, so we can review the coverage available to you.
