When you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in an accident caused by commercial trucking vehicle, having experienced attorneys on your side is imperative. They know the ins and outs of commercial trucking laws and understand how to successfully navigate the confusing terrain of insurance companies.
In the event that you’ve been involved in a trucking accident, it’s important that the incident be completely investigated and documented by professionals who know what they’re doing and have your best interests at heart. Even if you hold partial responsibility, the trucker may have contributed to and be liable for your injuries, so it’s extremely helpful to have an attorney on hand to look into the matter.
Typically, trucking accidents are more complicated than other vehicle accidents. This is partially due to the fact that there may be multiple insurance companies involved just for the tractor trailer alone. Oftentimes, there’s insurance for the trucking company itself, the truck driver, the trailer owner and the cargo shipper. That’s a lot to attempt to sift through on your own.
Since there’s most likely multiple insurance policies to go through, there may be more insurance coverage available to cover your injuries–meaning a higher payout. This means that you’ll be met with some push-back from the insurance agencies, and offers of lower settlements; which can become tricky to navigate while still receiving all potential compensation. An attorney can submit your claims, estimate costs, and help you achieve the best possible outcome and the highest possible payout through their knowledge and expertise.
It’s absolutely necessary to have a skilled attorney on your side, fighting in your best interests. You may be entitled to significant money, including lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering as well as other losses. Let a professional take the reigns and get you through this tough process.
