What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Employer Negligence Attorney

Trucking Company Negligence and Liability

Many truck drivers work for employers who actually own the trucks. Legally, these employers are usually held responsible for any damage incurred by their drivers while on the job, just as all employers are held responsible for their employees – a doctrine known as respondeat superior. A person who drives a truck may also have a case if he or she is injured on the job due to another party’s neglect or malice.

At the offices of Jacksonville truck accident attorney Don Guthrie, we are prepared to handle a variety of employer negligence cases, on behalf of people injured by truck drivers or truck drivers themselves. The cases we handle include, but are not limited to:

Why File a Personal Injury Suit?

It is true that winning a lawsuit will not erase the difficult experience you have been through, or the complications in your life that your truck accident-related injuries may have caused. So what could filing a personal injury suit against a negligent trucking company achieve?

  • Payment of medical bills. The cost of treatment for serious injuries can be staggering. You and your family should not be facing severe financial difficulties because of another party’s negligence.
  • Compensation for lost wages. If you have missed work or even lost your job because of your injuries, covering your new medical costs will be even more difficult. Fortunately you can recoup the money you have during your medical leave.
  • A chance to recover. After a serious accident you should be focusing your thoughts and energy on making a full recovery, not worrying about bills or your job. Successfully filing a suit will give you an opportunity to rest and truly begin to heal.
