Florida Truck Accident Lawyers Representing Injury Victims In Spring Hill

Nobody who lives in Spring Hill or visits the area 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 Spring Hill 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 Spring Hill truck accident lawyer today.

Contact A Truck Accident Attorney In Spring Hill

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 Spring Hill 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 Spring Hill, FL
The easiest way to think of a deposition is that it is a question-answer session. You will show up one day with me or another attorney from our firm to a court reporter’s office and you will be placed under oath and then the other side, their attorney gets an opportunity to ask you questions. You simply just respond to the questions to the best of your ability and at the end you will have an opportunity to review the transcript to see if there are any errors or changes that you feel did not get recorded correctly.
All it means is once a case actually gets filed with the court system. So you have pre-lit which is when you are negotiating, you are working with the defendants to try to come up with a compromise without the need to actually file that complaint. When the case actually gets filed with the court system, that’s when we say it’s in litigation.

When you have a case when it actually goes into litigation along the way there are some additional things that you as the client are asked to help with and the first one is we will have what are called discovery served on us. That is interrogatories, requests to produce requests for admissions. What those are are questions to you and they are basically asking you to provide information about what’s going on in your lawsuit. You work with our office, we get your responses prepared, you review them to make sure that they are accurate and correct. Then you actually go in front of a notary and you sign and you state that. Then we also get documents and we produce those and then on the steps we have what is called a deposition. A deposition is a question and answer session that you sit in with your attorney and the other side and they ask you what’s going on in the case of what’s going on with your injuries. After the deposition you have what is called mediation which is another chance to try to resolve the case with a neutral third-party called the mediator and then if we can’t resolve the case along that path we ultimately get what’s called a trial. That’s when you go in front of the jury and we try to resolve the case and have the jury come back with a decision.
