How an attorney can help if you've been hurt in a truck accident

If you or a loved one has been injured in a serious accident, you may be of the mindset that your insurance company will handle the details and make the appropriate payouts. However, the fact is that these companies are businesses and looking to make money and protect their bottom line. Because of this, you may not always get the financial coverage you expect.

It is for this reason that you would be wise to consult an attorney if you have been injured in a crash. This is particularly true if your accident involved a commercial vehicle because besides insurance companies, there may be trucking companies to contend with. 

Trucking companies are also out to make money, so when one of their drivers or trucks is involved in an accident, they have reason to try and limit their financial obligation. They may do this by covering up negligent practices or trying to blame you for part or all of the accident.

Having a trucking company, a trucker and an insurance company who all have reason to deny or downplay your injuries can make you feel powerless and like it would be in your best interest to accept a settlement rather than pursue a civil claim.

However, you don't have to deal with all this on your own. The attorneys at our firm have experience helping accident victims fight for the compensation they deserve from a negligent trucker or trucking company and can help you assess your options if the insurance companies offer you less than you think you deserve.
