Trucks are the largest vehicles on the road. As a result, when they collide with an automobile they can cause the greatest damage and injury.

Pedestrians struck by automobiles often suffer traumatic injuries. This should never happen. If you are injured as a pedestrian there are several aspects of your claim of which you should be mindful. First, if you own a vehicle, your personal automobile insurance may afford coverage and compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, mileage reimbursement, and for your injuries if the negligent party has no or insufficient insurance. Secondly, the automobile insurance for the driver and owner of the offending vehicle may compensate you for your injuries. Finally, it is important to seek treatment for your injuries and speak with a lawyer about your options as soon as possible. It is also very important to not speak with an insurance representative before speaking with an attorney. Contact Brent and T.C. today for a free, honest evaluation of your potential claims.

The doctrine of Sovereign Immunity divests the government (the sovereign) of any liability for its negligence or the negligence of its employees. In Florida, the legislature has waived its sovereign immunity in cases of negligence up to $200,000.00 per person and $300,000.00 per incident. This waiver of sovereign immunity applies to auto accidents involving employees of the city, county, or state (public transit, police, etc.); premises liability in public buildings (slip and falls, falling objects, violence, etc.) and other injuries caused by the negligence of a governmental entity or their employees. Although these caps exist, there is a mechanism by which a injured party can be compensated above said limits called a Claim Bill. At Latour | Roberts, PA we are experienced in handling both cases within the sovereign limits and cases requiring a Claim Bill. Contact us today.
