Due to the size of commercial trucks, they often cause accidents. No matter what you call them—a tractor-trailer, an 18-wheeler, a box truck, or a semi—the results are often the same. Your damages can quickly add up. If you want to clarify your options after your accident, you could contact a truck accident attorney in Hollywood, FL.
Dealing with a truck accident can be challenging on many levels. Investigating the initial cause of the crash is essential. And in a truck accident, more than one person or company can be liable for your costs. Our compassionate team of attorneys is ready to help you process the impact of your accident. At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, we can assist you in getting started on your claim right away.
You Can Recover Damages for a Truck Accident Case in Hollywood
Every accident is unique and results in different losses. Our attorneys take the time to investigate and determine the total value of your truck accident claim.
Florida allows truck accident victims to file to be reimbursed for their economic and non-economic losses. Your economic losses are financial. Typically, these items have a receipt or a specified cost. When considering the value of your claim, start adding these up. When you add up your property damage, hospital bills, rehabilitation costs, and lost wages, you realize that the value can be quite significant.
Non-economic losses include pain and suffering, inconvenience, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and scarring and disfigurement. Our attorneys at Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers know how to attach financial value to these losses.
