What You Need To Know
Semi-truck accidents are different from your average auto accident. Not only because of the severe aftermath but also because of its complicated legalities. Commercial trucks are backed by companies that have large insurance policies—fifty times larger than your car accident policies—because they know the probability of getting into an accident is higher. A semi-truck weighs roughly eighty thousand pounds and is ten times bigger than your average car. They are usually transporting hazardous materials, making it that much more dangerous for reckless driving. One negligent driver can alter someone’s life forever.
Furthermore, although these trucks have beefy insurance policies, getting the claim you deserve is actually more difficult than you’d expect. Adjusters will even go the extra mile to offer you a large payout when really your case could be twice as much as what they’re offering. It’s not only unfair but also immoral.
How an Attorney Will Help
Our specialized lawyers know the tactics used by insurance companies and have developed a step-by-step process, ensuring that your case will be well presented:
- Documentation: first, we gather all of the information we need, including camera footage, medical records, and police and accident report from the accident.
- Investigation: second, we go into greater detail and obtain more evidence, such as witness testimonies, police and accident reports, and medical records. We then tap into our network, interviewing medical experts and consulting truck accident experts. We also gather important evidence from the truck company and driver which entails alcohol and drug screening, as well as obtaining data from the truck’s camera (Electronic Control Module).
- Negotiation: finally, we present all of the evidence we have along with an argument catered to your case.
If we can’t settle on the compensation you deserve, we will go to court. But don’t worry, our jury verdicts are, on average, 20 times higher than the pre-trial settlement offers. Compensation from settlements will cover you or your loved one’s current and future medical bills, loss of wages or capability of earning wages, and pain and suffering, mental anguish, wrongful death, and loss of consortium—and even in some cases, punitive damages.
