There are a number of things you should consider if you are involved in an accident with a semi-truck or other large vehicle. Semi-trucks have the potential to do massive damage to your car or truck and leave you seriously injured. If your vehicle is destroyed and you have significant injuries, you may feel pressured to reach a settlement with the trucking company or their insurance provider. Many medical care providers will be hesitant to treat you without payment, and you may not have the money to pay your own medical expenses while you are waiting for a verdict or settlement from the accident. The good news is that a commercial trucking company is more likely to have higher coverage on their insurance policy or assets to help pay for anything that insurance doesn’t cover. That means that, once your case is finished, you’re more likely to have enough money to cover all of your expenses and injuries.
Having an attorney is invaluable if you have been involved in any accident— even more so if you have been involved in an accident with a large vehicle. Medical care providers are often more willing to provide treatment if they know that an attorney is prosecuting your claim. Large trucking companies sometimes have complex and confusing procedures for handling accident claims. Having an attorney dedicated to handling your case helps ensure that your claim is resolved as quickly as possible.
