Jupiter Truck Accident Lawyers


Collisions involving tractor-trailers typically cause much greater devastation when compared to standard car accidents, as damage to body and property may be attributed to several parties.

Factors such as vehicle maintenance, improperly loaded or secured cargo, and inconsistencies in the driver’s logs are among the legal complexities often associated with these cases, which makes representation by an experienced Jupiter truck accident attorney vital to maximizing a claim’s financial recovery potential.

If you or your loved one has been injured in a Jupiter truck accident, contact our award-winning truck accident lawyers at the Shiner Law Group to discuss your legal rights and options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Jupiter Truck Accident Lawyers

Steps to Take in the Event of an Accident

Truck accident victims may be left feeling scared, overwhelmed, and unsure of how to appropriately respond to an emergency without jeopardizing their legal and financial interests.

The seasoned truck accident lawyers at the Shiner Law Group provide a list of steps victims should follow to help build the most compelling claim:

  • Drivers and passengers involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer are likely to have suffered severe and debilitating injuries. Seek immediate medical attention, as minor concerns may worsen, and forgoing treatment could ultimately damage a claimant’s ability to recover pecuniary losses. Truck accident injuries include but are not limited to, internal organ damage, disfigurement, whiplash, broken bones, spinal cord injuries (SCIs), traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), and wrongful death.
  • Gather and preserve evidence from the crash site if your condition permits. Truck companies and their insurance providers will dispatch an emergency response team to gather evidence designed to reduce financial liability. Take photos or record video, note the conditions, preserve your clothing, and obtain the contact information of eyewitnesses. A truck accident lawyer can determine if product liability is present by consulting a network of accident reconstructionists.
  • Do not admit fault or give statements that could later be misinterpreted as fault. Seek immediate legal counsel before speaking with insurance companies.

Pursuing A Jupiter Truck Accident Claim

A claimant can bring a legal cause of action against a negligible truck driver within four years in the state of Florida, or two years in cases of wrongful death, for a broad range of damages: medical treatment and rehabilitation, pain and suffering, periods of disability, reduced earning capacity, and a permanent inability to engage in gainful employment.

If negligence is shown, the truck’s owner, the driver, the hiring company and its employees, as well as the leasing company (if applicable) can be held liable for injuries sustained. Claimants can also pursue a personal injury claim against the manufacturer of the truck’s components if product liability attributed to the accident.

How A Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help

Most commercial tractor-trailers operating in Florida are owned by third-party companies that offer different compensation for damages. At the Shiner Law Group, our experienced truck accident attorneys will take large national insurance companies and their policyholders to court to recover pecuniary losses not insured by a victim’s personal injury protection (PIP).

We work within Florida’s strict legal parameters to obtain video footage, police, medical, and accident reports, as well as other key evidence to ensure your claim is trial ready.

While the Shiner Law Group provides the sophisticated legal resources associated with a larger firm, we deliver the care and attention of a smaller firm, customizing our services to the facts and circumstances of each case, so you can focus on recovery.

As a visible part of the Jupiter community, we are committed to helping you get your life back.
