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 18-wheeler trucks frequently result in catastrophic injuries, but the truck driver’s insurance company will almost always do everything in their power to skirt liability and avoid paying you what you’re truly owed.
While most people don’t realize this, car accidents involving 18-wheeler trucks are handled much differently than accidents involving only passenger vehicles. These types of accident 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, their adjusters, and their attorneys.
When it comes to a serious car accident injury, you need to understand the importance of having a personal injury attorney on your side and looking out for your best interests. The trucker’s insurance company most-likely already has a team of attorneys going through the evidence in an effort to plausibly deny liability or deflect blame, 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 your chances will be at recovering the money you’re owed. By hiring an attorney on a no-win no-fee basis today, you can get back to focusing on what’s important to you. Our job is to build your case, deal with the insurance company, and work to get you the compensation you’re rightfully owed.
Truck Accident Cases are Unique
There are many reasons why commercial truck accident claims are handled differently than normal passenger car claims. For one, most commercial insurance policies are valued at over $1 million, while passenger cars are generally limited to $30k in coverage for each victim (up to a total of $60k 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 simply 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 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 take on any accident case this far along into the process.
The best thing you can do following a truck accident in Dallas is to discuss your case with an attorney as soon as possible. Our job is to look out for you, and we’re happy to answer any questions you have over the phone, in person, or by email.
