Injured truck accident victims are entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Typically, the first step in getting compensation is to file an injury insurance claim. The insurance company will investigate the accident and make a settlement offer that is far below the claim’s value. Never accept a settlement or other compensation from an insurance company without consulting an attorney first.
Experienced truck accident attorneys calculate maximum compensation packages that place the highest value on their clients’ health and comfort. They understand the unique circumstances and evidence available in truck accidents – like records from a truck’s Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), Engine Control Module (ECM), or video footage from the truck’s dashcam - to build strong cases insurers cannot ignore. If the insurance company does not make a fair settlement offer, an attorney can file a lawsuit to get results.
