Who Is Liable If You Are Injured in a Truck Accident in Hialeah or Another Florida Community?

If you are injured in a truck or car accident in Hialeah or another community, you will of course want answers as well as justice. One of the questions that many traffic accident victims have is “who is responsible for my accident and injuries?” The answer to that question can be complex. When an accident first occurs, police may become involved and may investigate the accident. They will generally reach a conclusion about the at-fault driver. In addition, the insurance carriers for both drivers will usually get involved and determine the at-fault driver themselves.

However, you may not agree with these assessments of what has happened during your traffic collision. You may wish to speak with a personal injury attorney in Hialeah or your community to get more detailed information about what has occurred. Unlike the police or insurance carriers, personal injury attorneys are working on your behalf. If you’ve been accused of causing an accident, or if you believe that the accident and your injuries were caused by someone’s recklessness, a personal injury attorney can work with accident reconstruction experts as well as private investigators to determine what happened during your traffic accident. This can be important for a number of reasons:

•To determine liable parties so that you can pursue a legal claim in order to seek compensation for the cost of your injuries
•To get answers about your accident
•To avoid being wrongfully accused of causing an accident that you did not in fact cause
In many cases, truck accident cases in Hialeah and other Florida communities are quite complex. There may be multiple liable parties, including:

•The motor carrier
•The truck driver
•The manufacturer of the truck or car involved in the accident
•The manufacturer specific car or truck parts
•The municipality responsible for maintaining the roads
There may be additional liable parties as well. Determining the liable parties in your accident is important. If you decide to pursue a legal claim in order to seek compensation, you must find the liable parties in order to pursue them for their recklessness or negligence. If there are multiple liable parties, you may have a better chance of recovering fair compensation for your lost wages, property damage, medical costs, and other expenses. A personal injury attorney can usually help you find answers so that you can focus on healing while the attorney pursues your claim.
