Hurt in a car accident involving an 18-wheeler truck? Call our Dallas accident lawyers 24/7 at 1-833-720-6090.
Not only do car accidents involving commercial trucks frequently result in catastrophic injuries, the truck driver’s insurance company will do everything in their power to skirt liability and avoid paying you what you’re owed.
Most people don’t realize this, but car accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks are handled much differently than accidents involving only passenger vehicles. These types of claims are aggressively defended, and without an attorney looking out for your best interests, you absolutely risk being taken advantage of by the insurance company and their attorneys.
When it comes to a serious car accident injury or wrongful death, you need to understand the importance of hiring a personal injury attorney. The truck driver’s insurance company already has a team of attorneys going through the evidence in an effort to deflect blame and reduce their own liability, which makes it vitally important that you act quickly.
We know that you have more important matters to deal with right now, but the sooner you act, the better. By hiring an attorney on a no-win no-fee basis now, you can focus on what’s important to you while we build your case, deal with the insurance company, and work to get you the compensation you’re rightfully owed.
Why are Truck Accident Claims Handled Differently Than Passenger Car Accidents?
For one, most commercial insurance policies are valued at over $1 million, while passenger cars are generally limited to $30,000 in coverage for each victim (up to a total of $60,000 per accident). What this means is that the truck driver’s insurance company has a lot more to lose, and will use every trick in the book to escape liability or avoid paying out what they actually owe you.
They will often attempt to convince you that they’re on your side and that you don’t need to hire a lawyer, but that’s part of their strategy. Never take legal advice from your opponent. Their goal is to string you along for as long as possible for two main reasons:
- They know that as time goes by and bills begin to pile up, victims like you become more-desperate for compensation and are willing to settle for much less than they’re actually owed.
- They also know that as more time passes, you’re far less-likely to find a truck accident attorney willing to accept you as a client and take on your case under a no-win no-fee basis.
