After your truck accident in Parkland, you need to take the best steps to ensure your safety, which involves immediately calling the police, making sure an accident report is completed, and not moving your vehicle unless you are obstructing ongoing traffic or are creating a hazard. Make sure to seek medical attention if you need it and do not speak with insurance adjusters without the representation of a personal injury attorney near Parkland. In most cases you must seek medical care in 14 days from the date of the accident, or you can lose your Personal Injury Protection benefits.
If you can, try to take photos of your property damage and your injuries to preserve evidence. Also, don’t rely on police officers to get the contact information of witnesses of the accident, but rather, try getting the contact information yourself. Often, there will be witnesses who the police officer simply negligent omits from the police report. Witnesses many times are crucial as to how an accident occurred.
Before you hire a personal injury attorney, be sure that he/she has ample trial experience. You are going to want a lawyer that has experience in the court room, especially if your case requires filing a law suit. Most serious injury cases do require the filing of a lawsuit to make sure that you get a good monetary recovery. Insurance adjusters are trained to try to settle your case as cheap as possible, so on the larger cases, we like to file lawsuits to get the cases away from these adjusters who tend to ‘lowball’.
Unfortunately most truck accident cases result in serious injury or death; therefore, you need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to handle your case. The head attorney of the firm, Dan Cytryn has handled numerous truck accident cases, including one involving a stalled flat bed tractor trailer which was ultimately brought to the Florida Supreme Court.
Our client was a passenger in a car traveling on the Palmetto Expressway when around 4:00 am, the vehicle driver crashed into a stalled unlit tractor trailer, instantly killing both our client and the driver. About an hour before the collision, another driver almost crashed into the stalled tractor trailer but managed to slam on his brakes and switch lanes, avoiding a collision. The individual called 911 and was transferred to a Florida Department of Highway Patrol dispatcher, which told him they would send a unit to the scene. However, the dispatcher failed to enter the call for assignment, and as a result, no one was sent to the scene.
