Lutz Truck Accidents
One of the most terrifying types of motor vehicle accidents is a truck accident. Trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds–that’s nearly 20 times more than the average passenger car. When a car and a large truck collide, the smaller vehicle is often completely totaled, and any occupants of that vehicle may be severely injured, if not fatally injured. At the office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, we understand how devastating truck accidents are, as well as how the aftermath of a truck accident can be painful, confusing, frustrating, and can seem to drag on for an excruciatingly long amount of time.
While our team cannot undo what has happened to you, we can offer legal support and representation as you navigate the claims process. If you’ve been in a truck accident and are dealing with severe injuries, please reach out to our law firm directly today for a free consultation. We know that you have a lot of questions and we hope that we can provide you with the information and support that you need during this difficult time.
Liability For A Lutz Truck Accident
One of the most important things to do in the aftermath of a truck accident is to determine who should be held liable–or legally responsible–for the crash and your damages. Liability in a truck accident can be very complicated, as various theories of liability may exist and many parties may be partially at fault. Potentially liable parties in a truck accident claim include:
- The truck driver;
- The trucking company;
- A third-party passenger car driver;
- The shipper or loader of cargo;
- The vehicle manufacturer;
- The party responsible for road or vehicle maintenance.

Statute Of Limitations For A Truck Accident Claim
If you are involved in a truck accident and are filing a truck accident lawsuit, you will have a limited amount of time to do so. We recommend initiating the claims process as soon as possible for a number of reasons, including to preserve evidence and to improve your chances of recovering compensation as soon as possible. In addition to these reasons, though, know that if you wait more than four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for damages, your claim will be barred based on a breach of the statute of limitations, per Florida Statutes Section 95.11.
