By design, commercial trucks are large because they’re intended to carry cargo. They’re also heavy and when the driver is careless, the momentum from the truck as it collides with a passenger vehicle can be devastating. If you were seriously injured when a truck backed into your car, your damages are likely extensive and will only climb higher as your medical costs increase. Meanwhile, the truck company will try to get away with offering you only a fraction of what their driver cost you. They may try to strong arm you into agreeing with an unfair settlement by telling you it’s a limited time offer. However, a truck accident lawyer can advocate on your behalf and negotiate with the insurance company to get you a fair settlement. In fact, we have had substantial success recovering the maximum amount of compensation possible for many of our past clients. Call us today to find out how we can make a difference for you too after speaking with a truck accident lawyer from our firm.
The Nature of Serious Injuries
Everybody heals at a different pace. Sometimes, an injury that does not seem at all serious develops into something that requires medical attention. Sometimes, a serious injury worsens, and in the worst case scenarios, a serious injury turns fatal.
In the immediate aftermath of a collision between your car and a commercial truck, you may have no idea yet how badly you were injured by the trucker’s carelessness. This is why it is so important to see a doctor in the hours or days after your accident if you did not go immediately to the emergency room. For examples that underscore this, search the Internet for people who thought they were fine but a few days later had passed from what could have been a recoverable brain injury. Every experienced truck accident lawyer is all too aware of this potential outcome.
A Settlement That You Deserve
It requires a skilled truck accident lawyer to assess a physician’s diagnosis of an injured accident victim to place a dollar value on what medical costs they may face in the future. Add to that the time off from work when the victim can’t earn a living. There are many costs involved but from a Virginia truck accident lawyer has the experience and knowledge necessary for documenting and proving what your claim is worth.
When You Need an Experienced Truck Accident Lawyer
No two accidents are exactly the same because of all the variables involved. However, what many of them share in common is the reluctance of the at-fault driver’s insurance company to honor the victim’s personal injury claim. They are all too often more concerned about protecting their bottom line. When an experienced truck accident lawyer enters the picture, the insurance company suddenly realizes the value of coming to the negotiating table. Their alternative is to face an expensive court battle. We are all too familiar with the underhanded practices of many insurance companies. Schedule a meeting with a truck accident lawyer who can review your case at no charge and let you know if they might be able to negotiate a favorable settlement on your behalf.
