For example, the owner of the tractor and the owner of the trailer and the owner of the product being delivered are often all separate entities. Drivers too may be independent contractors or hired by the tractor owner through an agency. Each of these agreements among parties stipulates various insurance liabilities and responsibilities, and it can be very difficult for someone injured in a truck accident to determine which entities to hold to account.
All of this points to the bottom line that victims or survivors of victims of Florida truck accidents must contact a proven law firm as soon as possible after the crash. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner an independent investigation can be held, and you can be advised of your rights and instructed on how to handle insurance settlement offers or denials.
