Truck Accident Lawyer Serving Daytona Beach
It's only natural to grip the wheel a bit tighter when passing an 18-wheeler. Your life is very much out of your own hands-because one wrong move by the truck driver could result in disaster. Big rig accidents are tragic, and they cause thousands of deaths and injuries around the United States every year.
Although your collision may have been entirely out of your control, you do have control over how you respond in the aftermath. With the help of a truck accident attorney from Frankl & Kominsky, you may be able to try to recover the compensation needed to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, vehicle repairs, and other damages for your Daytona Beach Truck Accident claim.
Besides the truck driver, there are many parties who might be liable for your damages after a semi-truck accident: the trucking company, a negligent mechanic, weigh station officials, an auto parts manufacturer-the list goes on.
The truck accident lawyers at Frankl & Kominsky will try to help you determine who may be liable for your damages, and we will dig deep to gather the evidence to try prove your claim. The sooner you contact our law firm, the sooner we can investigate your case-while important evidence is still available.

It’s easy to underestimate the amount of effort and resources an insurance company may invest into finding reasons to dispute a personal injury claim. Something as seemingly benign as a photo with friends on social media could jeopardize your case if it brings the severity of your injuries into question. A recorded statement with a polite insurance adjuster may wind up being used as evidence to deny your claim.
What happens if the insurance company argues that you were partially at fault? How would you prove negligence and liability?
The truck accident attorneys at Frankl & Kominsky will try to help you avoid crucial mistakes and will answer your claims-related questions-even the ones you didn't know to ask. We will compile evidence, interview witnesses, handle settlement negotiations, and try to make sure you aren't bullied into accepting an unfair payout.Why Are Florida Truck Accident Claims So Complicated?
Bringing a claim after a truck accident is not the same as bringing a claim after a collision involving two passenger vehicles. As previously mentioned, there are many parties besides the truck driver who may be liable for your damages. It is often the case that multiple parties share a percentage of fault. There are also different types of evidence used to prove negligence in truck accident cases-evidence that can be altered or destroyed if you wait too long to speak with a personal injury attorney.
For example, data from the big rig's black box might show an Hours of Service violation, which means the trucker violated federal law by spending too many hours on the road. Weigh station receipts, toll booth receipts, dashcam footage, the trucker's Hours of Service logbook-all of this evidence might be valuable and must be gathered at the earliest possible point in time.
With many years of experience handling accident claims, the lawyers at Frankl & Kominsky will perform a thorough investigation to determine if any parties other than the truck driver could be held liable for your damages. We can also try to determine if your claim should include future damages, non-economic damages, or exemplary damages-which, depending on the facts of your case, could account for a significant portion of your monetary recovery if your claim is successful.
It takes experience, refined legal strategies and a knowledge of Florida personal injury law to find success in truck accident cases. Our attorneys will do everything we can to try and get you and your family fairly compensated as quickly as possible.Speak with an Truck Accident Attorney who serves Daytona Beach
