Truck Accident FAQ
What’s my case worth?
Many factors are at play. Trucking companies tend to have large insurance companies covering them. Policies are worth much more than an auto or motorcycle claim. Also, the physics involved in a large 18-wheeler hitting a smaller vehicle usually lead to catastrophic injuries and oftentimes fatalities.
What I can tell you is that I will remain at your side throughout the entire legal process, fighting to maximize compensation for lost wages (both now and in the future), property damage, pain and suffering, and any special needs you require going forward.
Should I speak to insurance adjusters?
No matter how nice they sound, they are not on your side. They say the right things to get you to provide them with information. They make promises of money that will help you move on quickly with your life. You need to understand: Interactions with adjusters are futile and pointless, unless you have an attorney with you.
How does my health insurance come into play and should I use it?
You can rely on your own health insurance to cover your costs as you wait for a settlement or verdict to be obtained in your personal injury case.
I know how to negotiate with health insurers to make sure you have the treatment you need while minimizing your costs and limiting your insurer’s involvement. If you lack health insurance, I can arrange treatment with doctors who are willing to be paid at the conclusion of your case.
What if I don’t have health insurance?
You are not alone. However, it does create challenges in pursuing compensation for your injuries and other losses. Again, auto insurance can supplement you as your auto insurance policy should include medical payment coverage. While not enough to cover all the injuries and losses, I can negotiate reduced payments and medical treatments.
