Winter Park Truck Accident Lawyer
Winter Park Truck Accident Attorney Firm Securing Compensation for clients Injured in Winter Park and surrounding areas.
Large trucks routinely travel through Winter Park on I-4, and it is important for drivers to know that a collision with a big rig can cause serious or fatal injuries. Indeed, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), since large trucks tend to weight anywhere from 20 to 30 pounds more than passenger cars, a collision can be devastating. In addition, since 18-wheelers have a greater ground clearance than passenger cars, crashes with large trucks frequently result in a smaller vehicle underriding the truck. Given that it takes trucks a much longer time to brake compared with passenger vehicles, underriding accidents happen more often than they should, and they frequently result in passenger vehicle occupant fatalities.
When a truck driver or another party is at fault for a dangerous trucking accident, the injury victim or her survivors deserve to seek financial compensation. An aggressive Winter Park truck accident lawyer can help. At the Benenati Law Firm, we have recovered millions of dollars for injury victims in Central Florida, and we can help with your case.

Types of Damages for Plaintiffs in Winter Park Truck Accident Cases
When you file a truck accident claim, you can seek compensation for your losses. Under Florida law (Florida Statutes §§ 768.71 through 768.79), truck accident victims can be eligible to receive two different types of compensatory damages:
- Economic damages, which compensate a victim for direct financial losses (like hospital bills, surgery costs, and lost wages); and
- Noneconomic damages, which compensate a victim for subjective losses that are not evenly quantified (like pain and suffering or disfigurement).
Just like the name suggests, compensatory damages are designed to compensate a plaintiff for losses associated with the accident and her injuries. In addition, in some cases plaintiffs may be eligible to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages are not designed to compensate, but rather to punish especially bad conduct by the defendant. They are not awarded very often, and a plaintiff is required to make a case that there is a reasonable basis upon which she could recover this type of damages. Generally speaking, in order to recover punitive damages, a plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant is liable for intentional misconduct or gross negligence. The statute defines “gross negligence” as conduct that “was so reckless or wanting in care that it constituted a conscious disregard or indifference to the life, safety, or rights of persons exposed to such conduct.”
