Truck Accident Settlement Offers
Were you or someone you love involved in an accident with a semi-truck or other commercial vehicle? You may be able to recover compensation but make sure you don’t get low-balled by the insurance company. Watch this video to find out what’s important to know about truck accident settlement offers.
If a client has a serious injury as a result of a truck accident, at some point along the way that person will be given an offer from the insurance company. It’s important that you have counsel who can guide you through this because that first offer is not going to be your best offer. They’re not trying to be fair, which often is the case because you don’t have a full gauge of what the future holds for you. It’s important that you have an attorney who not just parses through and has a good understanding of the medicals, and the bills, and the suffering you’ve gone through from the date of the accident to the day of that initial offer, but also to kind of look at and understand what’s going to be reasonably expected in the future healthwise.
Even if you don’t need future care, therapy, or surgery, how is your life going to be affected. How are you going to be able to return to normal life? You’re entitled to compensation for your quality of life, and the suffering you endure. All of this has to be fully understood by someone who’s an expert in this and has an understanding of what’s to be expected into the future. This is often done by understanding your medicals up to that point, but even more so what medicals and trauma, injuries or limitations, can be expected in the future. That first offer is not always going to be the best.
