Fighting for Your Justice
It’s common to feel isolated and alone after you’ve been seriously injured, especially after a truck accident. These types of accidents can leave you with catastrophic injuries and make you feel like justice is not within reach. Our Orlando truck accident lawyers want you to know that you can receive justice. We are dedicated to providing you with the legal representation needed in order to get you the justice you want. You should know a few things about how we do this.
First, we want you to know that when we are seeking justice for your case, we are getting it for you in the form of financial compensation. This financial compensation is going to be determined based on your case details and how your truck accident has impacted you. If you ever meet with a lawyer who tells you that they can get you a guaranteed compensation award without first knowing all the details of your case, that’s probably not the lawyer for you. Our Orlando truck accident lawyers thoroughly investigate your case to make sure that we have identified all possible liable parties and we make sure that we have our evidence together, as well as a better understanding of what your medical recovery will be. You need to get to a point of maximum medical recovery for us to know what your compensation award would be.
Do You Need Legal Help?
Your maximum medical recovery can also be thought of as your return to health. In some cases, you might be able to return to full health as you were before the accident in a matter of months. There are other cases in which your doctor is going to say that this is about as good as you’re going to get and you will be left with permanent damage from this truck accident. It is vitally important that we have this information put together before we can start determining the value of your case.
The value of your case can be broken down into two types of damages: economic and non-economic damages.
Your economic damages are meant to reimburse you for all the financial loss you have had to suffer because of this truck accident. Financial loss can come in the form of lost wages if you had to use your paid time off at work to recover from your injuries, as well as any medical bills and expenses that you incurred following your truck accident.
Non-economic damages are more subjective ways that the truck accident has affected your life. You might end up with depression and anxiety due to your truck accident. You might suffer permanent damages that leave you in chronic pain. Your past and future pain and suffering play a role in what your non-economic compensation will look like.
Benefits of Having a Lawyer
When you were considering talking to Orlando truck accident lawyers about your case, there may be things that are holding you back from hiring a lawyer. First off, you might be worried about the cost of a lawyer. Please note that you will never be charged any upfront fees or out-of-pocket expenses to have a lawyer fight for your personal injury case. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid unless we win your case.
You also might be wondering if it’s worth having a lawyer. We have found that people who are represented by lawyers end up with better results. It is worth it, too, if you value your time. You would have to become an overnight expert on truck accident litigation in Florida to get the same results as a lawyer would get you.
Don’t Delay Reaching Out
In Florida, the statute of limitations is four years. The statute of limitations is your legal deadline in which you are allowed to bring your civil case against the liable party. If you were, for some reason, to let your truck accident slip your mind, then four years could get away from you before you file your claim. We understand that life gets in the way but we need you to prioritize getting in touch with our Orlando truck accident lawyers to ensure that you are filing your case in a timely manner.
Even if you let this fall off of your list of priorities for just a year or so, a lot of things can happen in that time that could ruin your case. Most importantly, your case is time-sensitive. If you hadn’t already collected evidence at the scene, then after many months, there’s likely no chance of any evidence remaining. Even CCTV footage from nearby businesses could have been deleted or recorded over, which would leave us with even less evidence. Overall, this is just harder for us to work with if we can’t collect quality evidence. You don’t want to wait so long that your witnesses forget what happened.
If you were to try to file your claim past this deadline, unfortunately you would be barred from receiving compensation. It would be a tragedy for you to miss out on receiving justice simply because you didn’t call our lawyers right away. We urge you to reach out as soon as you possibly can. It’s deeply important that you act quickly.
Ways to Avoid Ruining Your Case
It is important for you to know that when you file a claim for compensation you are attempting to get an award from the insurance company that represents the liable party. These insurance companies tend to want to save themselves money, so they might act in a way that benefits themselves and does not have your best interest at heart. They know as well as our Orlando truck accident lawyers that in Florida we follow pure comparative negligence.
When we have a case against a liable party, the insurance company is often going to try to pin you with some of the blame for the accident In order to reduce what they owe you. If for example they could blame you for 10% of the accident, they only have to give you 90% of your compensation award. We are going to fight to protect you from this happening but if you don’t reach out to us right away, the insurance company will try to get to you first and ask you to give them a recorded statement. You are not legally obligated to speak to them about the accident and we strongly encourage that you don’t because they are trained to get answers out of you that would harm your case.
They can ask you something as simple as how you are doing and, while this might seem like a greeting that warrants a polite response, if you said something along the lines of you’re doing well, then they’re going to take that to mean that you are fine following your truck accident.
It would be a terrible mistake for you to lose out on compensation that you deserve because you gave the insurance company leverage over you when you agreed to give them a recorded statement. We strongly advise against you talking to them without first speaking to your attorneys about it. Most attorneys are going to tell you not to talk to them and let them handle communication with the insurance company on your behalf so that your rights continue to be protected.
We don’t have tolerance for insurance companies that want to short you on your settlement award simply because they’d like to make a profit. You deserve better than that.
We are always going to treat your case as if it is going to trial even though sometimes that might not be the case. If we cannot come up with an agreement with the insurance company, then we might end up going to trial.

“In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”
