A truck accident can change your life in seconds. A short trip to the grocery store can quickly turn into one of the most chaotic periods of your life. During this stressful time, Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers will pursue damages to pay for your losses.
Our family-owned law firm has decades of experience serving truck accident claimants. Our Boca Raton truck accident lawyers will do everything possible to resolve your case. While we resolve most injury cases through insurance settlements, we’re not afraid of tense courtroom battles. You can meet our team today during a free case review.
Florida Has a Four-Year Statute of Limitations
Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) notes that you generally have four years from your accident’s date to file a lawsuit. By filing your lawsuit within that timeframe, you protect your right to seek damages. If you don’t file within this period, the court will refuse to hear your case, leaving you with few legal options.
You Have Less Time to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
We understand that losing a loved one is traumatic. During this challenging time, we want to support you and your loved ones. To do this, however, we must file your lawsuit within two years from the date of your loved one’s passing, as mandated by Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d).
Once we learn about your case, we’ll file your case on time to prevent the statute of limitations from expiring. We’ll manage your legal case while you celebrate your loved one’s life and achievements.
Some Exceptions May Apply
Of course, not all cases are the same. Florida Statutes § 95.051 notes that you may have a longer time to file if:
- The at-fault party left the accident scene without sharing their information
- The at-fault party left the state
- A physical or cognitive disability prevented you from filing a lawsuit
- You were hurt as someone under the age of 18
- You didn’t discover your injuries until after the collision happened
We can determine whether any filing exceptions apply to your case and move forward from there.

Our Lawyers Have Secured Millions for Injured Claimants Throughout Florida
South Florida residents know our law firm by name. We’ve been featured on CNN, Inside Edition, Dateline, and local news stations. We’re also members of the American Bar Association (ABA) and the Multi-Million-Dollar Forum – where less than one percent of the nation’s lawyers are members.
We’ve recovered millions for our clients since 1995. Some of our case results include:
$3 Million After Suing Bridgestone and Ford
Pursuing compensation after a truck accident involves going toe-to-toe with million-dollar corporations. This is something we have experience with. After our client’s collision was caused by defective tires, we successfully sued Bridgestone and Ford.
$1 Million After a Wrongful Death
Our client came to us after losing a loved one in an auto accident. After we presented their case to the insurance company, we recovered $1 million.
$325,000 After a Serious Truck Accident
Our client suffered complex regional pain syndrome after being hit by a truck. They suffered chronic pain afterward. We negotiated a $325,000 settlement that accounted for their medical bills, lost income, and other related expenses.

Questions and Answers About Your Boca Raton Truck Accident Case
Right now, you can get the answers to these questions about your case:
How Does Insurance Work in Florida?
Every motorist must have personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, explains the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). In most cases, injured claimants first seek compensation from their insurance providers.
However, if their injuries pass a certain threshold (or their damages exceed their policy’s coverage), they can file a claim with the other party’s insurer.
Are Truck Accident Cases Different From Car Accident Cases?
In the big scheme of things, not really. However, going against million-dollar trucking companies can get confusing. They may refute liability or contest some aspects of your case.
Yet, our team has experience negotiating with major companies. We have no problem going head-to-head with these entities for you.
What Damages Can I Recover?
Compensation in your case may account for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of consortium
The value of your case depends on many aspects of your situation, including your injuries, emotional state, and the accident’s severity.
