In just a few short moments, your entire life can change. Any auto accident can be life-changing, but especially semi truck accidents. We share the road with metal giants weighing up to 80,000 pounds and when an accident occurs with an 18-wheeler, the results can be devastating. Injuries from a truck crash are often severe, and in some cases, even life threatening.
Your top priority after a truck crash should be taking care of your health, which can lead to costly medical expenses. A truck accident attorney can help cover your medical expenses and bring you justice against negligent parties.
Truck Accident Personal Injury Claims
If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation. An experienced truck crash injury lawyer can help resolve your case quickly while maximizing your compensation. This means you can get back on your feet in a timely manner without the burden of costly medical bills. In order for your case to be resolved, there are many factors your attorney will need to consider.
- Whether the truck driver or trucking company’s insurance provider admits fault in the accident
- The length of time needed for you to complete the necessary medical treatment
- Whether or not the insurance company refuses to pay a fair amount in settlement and need to be taken to court
These are just a few of the factors that go into your case. Truck accidents are often incredibly complex. That’s why it’s so important that you choose an attorney with experience in truck accident cases. The right attorney can resolve your case quicker and provide better compensation for your injuries.
How Long Will the Process Take?
This is a difficult question to answer and will vary from case to case. While many insurance providers prefer to settle cases out of court in order to avoid a costly legal battle, it isn’t always the case.
Your lawyer will work closely with the insurance company to achieve a fair settlement. This process can be lengthy and there are often disagreements about the claim and the compensation required.
In the event that the insurance company refuses to settle for a fair amount, the case will be brought to court. That’s why it’s important that you choose an attorney with experience in litigation. You need an attorney that will fight for you, over settlement agreements or in court. If your case requires litigation, the process will take extra time.
Some truck accident cases can be resolved in 1-2 years, while others may take additional time to reach a fair settlement. Choosing the right attorney can speed up the process and ensure you’re receiving an appropriate settlement for your case. The length of each case will be different from case to case.
