Fighting For Truck Accident Victims
After a serious truck accident, the challenges you will be facing are significant.

Talk To Us Before You Talk To The Insurance Company
It is important to know what’s in store for you in a truck accident case. One of the most common occurrences in cases like this is a call from the insurance agent. The insurance company will send an agent to check on you and almost invariably, the agent will make a settlement offer that seems generous. At the time, it will seem like an easy solution to all of your financial problems stemming from the accident, and you will be tempted to accept the offer.
However, it is critical to talk with us before you talk with the insurance agent, definitely before you accept an offer. Why? The offer you receive will seem generous, but it will not be nearly as much as your case might be worth. The insurance company will probably make an offer to cover your immediate medical expenses, and nothing more. However, a serious accident case, negotiated properly or tried in court, could yield full compensation for:
- Immediate medical care
- Long-term costs of medical expenses and adaptive technology for the rest of your life
- The costs associated with lost wages resulting from the accident
- Long-term pain and suffering and loss of quality of life resulting from the accident
- Other costs and expenses
The responsible party should be the one shouldering the burden of all of these long-term expenses and damages. Our lawyers can help make sure that happens and that you get the compensation you deserve. This is one of the main reasons why a lawyer is important for injury cases of this kind.
