Things to Consider After an Accident with a Commercial Truck
It’s a no-brainer that even a low-speed impact with a commercial truck can leave a car in smithereens and its occupants either severely injured or worse. Your injuries may be catastrophic and their impact on your life devastating. Yet, you may not receive fair compensation, here are some things to consider.
Insurance companies only do right by themselves:
The big problem is that when an insurer and its corporate client (in this case a trucking company) compensate one victim, they create a pathway for other lawsuits to come their way.
They will fight tooth and nail to not open this can of worms. However, that’s far from being the only problem here.
You will have more than one opponent:
Typically, truck wrecks involve multiple at-fault parties. That also means-multiple insurance companies in the equation. Even if you were to find a conscientious insurer or simply one who wants to prevent the bad press, it will still be a turbulent ride.
The seemingly insolvable puzzle of commercial truck liability:
The process of understanding liability and calculating the precise cost of your injuries is more than just complicated. It is also time sensitive. In truck wrecks, a lot of the vital evidence is actually held by the at-fault party. It’s important to stop them from destroying it.
Your situation-your worst enemy:
At the end of the day, insurance companies know that the victim is in a tough spot, and all they have to do is bide their time till you are exhausted not just by your injuries but also by the mounting medical bills.
They can hold out forever, can you?
Without a doubt, the insurance companies will have an army of high-priced lawyers. And guess who their allies will be, the ones they know they can count on?
- Your fear.
- Your money troubles.
- Your anxiety.
- Your pain.
- Your lack of knowledge.
