Make a plan when you are struck by a commercial driver

There is no reason why a person who is driving a commercial vehicle, such as a semi-truck, doesn't drive safely. These individuals are being paid to drive, which is why they should make sure they are paying close attention to what they are doing. Sadly, some employees just don't care enough to be bothered with giving their full attention to the road.

Some of these drivers treat their driving time more like personal time rather than work time. This can spell disaster if the person gets distracted while they are driving. A distracted driver is a very dangerous driver.

We know that you didn't expect the crash, so you didn't have time to brace financially for the time that you have to take off of work or the cost of the care that you might need. One option that you have is to seek compensation from the driver who struck you. In this claim for compensation, you might also list the insurance company and employer as defendants, depending on the circumstances.

It is imperative that you take the time to get the healing process started after the crash. You don't want to put off your health in a situation like this. Make sure that you get started as quickly as you can after the crash. There are time limits in Florida that apply to personal injury cases.

We understand that you might have some concerns about the process. We can help you address these so that you can have a plan for what you are going to do regarding your claim.
