Truck accidents can cause catastrophic physical injuries and property damage, but that’s only part of the story. Many survivors also walk away from these crashes in Florida with severe financial burdens. At Flaxman Law Group, we’ve simply seen too many hard-working people find themselves stressed by lost income, huge medical bills, high car repair bills, and other costs.
For this reason, if you’ve been in a truck accident in South Florida, we ask that you contact our Miami, Homestead, and Hollywood offices so you can talk to a Florida truck accident attorney. We don’t charge anything for this initial consultation and there is no obligation. It’s simply your way of finding out whether there are any options for seeking compensation in your case.
The Hidden Costs of Florida Truck Accidents
Many people who walk away from a serious truck accident are thinking about their health and injuries. They may not be considering the financial impact of the crash, which can include many unexpected costs:
- Medical expenses. Serious injuries resulting from truck accidents often require extensive medical care, including hospital stays, surgeries, physical therapy, and ongoing rehabilitation. These expenses can quickly accumulate, leading to a significant financial burden.
- Property damage. Repairing or replacing vehicles can be costly, particularly if they were new or had significant value. The financial impact extends to rental car expenses while your vehicle is being repaired, adding to the overall costs. In addition, you many need to repair or replace anything which was damaged in the crash, such as jewellery, laptops, phones, clothing, and other personal property. This, too, can add substantially to the costs.
- Lost income. Recovering from injuries sustained in a truck accident may necessitate time off work for medical appointments, treatments, and rehabilitation. This loss of income can make it challenging to cover daily expenses, bills, and mortgage payments.
- Long-term and incidental injury costs. In some cases, truck accident injuries can lead to long-term or permanent disabilities that require ongoing care. This can include home modifications, specialized equipment, and continued medical treatments, all of which contribute to the financial strain.
- Legal costs. Navigating the legal aftermath of a truck accident, including filing insurance claims and pursuing compensation, can also come with its own costs. Legal fees, court expenses, and administrative fees may all need to be considered.
