The Law Offices of Jorge L. Flores, P.A., frequently represents individuals who have been seriously injured as a result of truck accidents. The firm also represents the families of loved ones who have lost their lives after these types of obstreperous collisions. When a large truck collides with an automobile or motorcycle, the results tend to be catastrophic. Passengers and drivers of smaller vehicles often sustain traumatic and painful injuries due to the substantial size difference between the vehicles involved in the accident.
Most lawsuits in Florida arising out of a truck or big rig accident are founded on the legal theory of negligence. Generally speaking, a negligent driver is one who fails to drive reasonably. When a negligent driver causes a collision, injured parties may be entitled to compensation from the negligent driver.
Automobile collisions in general and truck collisions in particular, can be the result of a variety of factors, and sometimes multiple parties can accept some blame for one accident. For this reason, it is important to note that Florida law recognizes the theory of “comparative negligence,” which means that an injured party may still be entitled to compensation, even if he or she was partially at fault. For example, under comparative negligence, an injured party who was forty percent at fault for the accident could recover about sixty percent of his or her damages.
