Truck Accidents & Personal Injury Law

We represent truck accident victims and surviving family members in negotiations with those responsible for their losses and in litigation at every level of the state and federal courts.

Common types of negligence seen in truck accident cases include:

  • Reckless driving (usually excessive speeding)
  • Improperly maintained vehicles (mechanical failure)
  • Fatigue (state and federal regulations impose mandatory rest periods and breaks)
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Overloaded or improperly loaded cargo
  • Road design defects

Truck accidents can be very complex. Our Miami truck accident lawyers’ experience with these difficult, hard-fought cases has made us a trusted personal injury law firm for referrals from other attorneys and outside sources. Our success has been no accident. Preparation is the key. To maximize results in each case, we work with accident reconstruction experts, highway safety engineers and other professionals to put together a clear picture of what happened and why.

We then take that picture and use sophisticated courtroom models, demonstrations, medical illustrations, computer simulations and other materials to frame that picture in the most compelling way we can. Often, this meticulous preparation helps persuade insurance carriers and corporate representatives to settle a claim rather than have our evidence presented to a jury. Mitchell J. Panter and Brett A. Panter are Florida board-certified trial attorneys.

File Your Truck & Auto Claim Within The Legal Time Limit

You only have a certain amount of time to file a lawsuit for an auto accident as dictated by your state’s personal injury statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a car accident claim is four years from the date of the incident. Failing to file a claim within that time means that you can no longer obtain compensation, and the liable party will not be responsible for paying any damages for the accident. The earlier you act, the better off you and your case are likely to turn out.

*On March 24, 2023, Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill (HB) 837 reducing Florida’s statute of limitations for general negligence cases from four years to two years. In other words, a lawsuit alleging negligence which accrued after March 24, 2023 must now be filed within two years of the date of the alleged negligence or the claim will be forever barred.

Our skilled truck accident lawyers at Panter, Panter & Sampedro can help you understand your options and seek compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. We understand the significant effect that a truck or auto accident can have on your life. Let us take care of the heavy lifting while you rest and recover from your injuries.

  • No recovery, no fees.

    We believe that everyone, regardless of their financial status, should have access to sound legal counsel as they exercise their right to pursue justice and redress any harm or wrongdoing.

    At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, all our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that any payment to the firm completely depends on whether our efforts result in a financial recovery for our client.

    Any lawyer’s fees for representing the client will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in the client’s case or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that the client’s case goes to trial.

    In general, attorneys can receive up to one-third of the gross amount of a pre-suit settlement or 40% of the gross settlement recovery once a Defendant files an answer to a lawsuit. These rules are regulated by the Florida Bar, and the following summarizes our contingency fee policy:

    • Client enters into an agreement granting legal authority to the firm to represent the client in exchange for attorneys fees paid in the form of a percentage of the total recovery.
    • The firm assumes all up-front financial costs and risk associated with litigating the case. All of these expenses are paid by the firm, and are only repaid if a recovery is won.
    • The client pays no fees whatsoever, hourly or otherwise.
    • The firm’s contingency fee percentage varies based on the type of case, level of complexity, and the foreseeable resources required to litigate it properly.
    • Every case is unique, but the contingency fee percentage is always clearly agreed upon by both parties and documented in writing upon retaining our services.
  • We can. Call 305-662-6178 or submit a request for your FREE CONSULTATION to speak directly with one of our knowledgeable personal injury lawyers. We will review your case at no charge. To learn more about personal injury, please read below.

    Personal injury law, also known as tort law, is designed to protect you if you or your property is injured or harmed because of someone else’s act or failure to act. In a successful tort action, the one who caused the injury or harm compensates the one who suffered the losses.

    Every tort claim, regardless of its basis, whether intentional, negligence, or strict liability, has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant liable for the damages you sustained, and, if so, what is the nature and extent of your damages? If you can prove liability and damages, our system of justice will award you compensation for your loss.

    Personal injury cases can involve:

Personal Injury

Traffic Accidents

Medical Malpractice

Premises Liability

Product Liability

Catastrophic Injuries
