Contacting a lawyer as soon as possible is important, because much of the evidence that is needed to build a strong case, like a truck driver’s log is more easily available immediately following the accident. Additionally, contacting an experienced trucking attorney is essential before signing a medical realize or giving a statement to an insurance company or commercial trucking company.
The truck company may not pay your medical bills immediately. Many truck accidents can result in hefty medical bills that cover treatment for spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, broken bones, road rash, and so on. These expenses can be massive, and often, there are additional bills associated with recovery and physical therapy. Having an attorney on your side can help you make sure you are getting the maximum compensation to help cover these costs.
After a serious collision, the trucking company insurer will do everything possible to minimize the claim. They will attempt to rush you into a settlement and ask you questions shortly after the accident. Being prepared with an attorney will protect you and give you a better chance at receiving a higher settlement.
