If you or a family member has been in a collision with a truck, and especially a big-rig, box truck, or another type of large commercial vehicle, it’s time to contact a truck accident lawyer. It’s very likely your best and only chance of receiving the compensation you and your family need and deserve.
Trucking companies are required by law to carry hefty insurance policies because collisions involving commercial trucks can cause great harm and these companies also typically have major assets to protect. A truck accident lawyer can make sure that these companies and their insurance provide truly fair compensation as determined by law.
Many people find thinking about money in the aftermath of a serious accident extremely difficult. Realistically, however, the costs associated with serious injuries or deaths are high. Having the ability to deal with these costs can mean everything to the future of an individual or family.
I’ve Already Received a Settlement Offer; Do I Need a Lawyer?
Yes! After an accident, what typically happens is the insurance company makes an offer that might seem like a lot. While the amount may be more money than you would have ever received at a single time, insurance companies are usually hoping that you sign the initial offer because it’s probably only a sliver of the amount you are entitled to. Therefore, it’s crucial that you not sign any paperwork until you’ve checked with a competent personal injury lawyer. Otherwise, you may be leaving a large amount of money on the table and that’s a mistake you’d rather not make.
