Injured in a truck crash? Don’t settle for less than you deserve. Watch this video to learn what’s important about truck accident settlement offers.
Should I accept a settlement offer from an insurance company?
The injuries from a commercial trucking accident can be completely devastating and life-long. Usually, it’s not a minor injury when a commercial truck in involved. There’s usually not some kind of low limitation of available funds to pay for a commercial trucking injury. That means that the person who’s been injured in a commercial truck accident has to hire a law firm that knows how to prosecute commercial trucking negligence, which can be wide-ranging. The accident might not have been caused just by the negligence of the truck driver; it can be the negligence of the industry that he works in, including the supervisors, and everybody that goes into making decisions about how freight is being transported on the highways of our country.
What’s important to understand is that under no circumstances should anybody even contemplate a first offer or even talking to somebody – a commercial trucking representative or the insurance company – about resolving a claim. What’s important is that they call our firm and let us work up all the damages. They can be life-long, and they can be absolutely devastating. You don’t want to leave money on the table.
