When you are in any car accident, you need someone fighting on your side. But when you are in a truck accident, it is even more essential that you have an experienced attorney familiar with truck accidents specifically. There are several reasons you don’t want to tackle these situations on your own.
When it comes to your average car accident, determining liability is fairly simple. Usually, it is going to fall on one of the drivers. But in a truck accident, liability may not be immediately clear. While the truck driver may be responsible for causing the wreck, it could also have been caused by the company’s policies or lack of maintenance on their vehicles. There are a lot of contributing factors to an accident with a commercial truck, and it takes an experienced attorney to be able to determine who should be compensating you for your injuries.
It is very easy to get lost in the shuffle when dealing with big insurance companies and truck companies. These companies are very large, and paying you for your damages and injuries is not high on their list of priorities. You need an advocate that can make sure that your case is handled appropriately and that you get the compensation that you deserve.
These big truck and insurance companies are also going to try to pay out as little as possible. These companies are not in the business of paying claims and settlements. They are in the business of making money. That means that they will likely offer you a settlement lower than what you truly deserve. An experienced truck accident attorney can make sure that you get the compensation that adequately represents your damages and injuries.
