What is the settlement from a trucking accident?

Settlements from trucking accidents are usually larger than settlements from car wrecks but there are factors that will affect the settlement amount. First, a delay in hiring a lawyer to represent your interests could lead to a lower settlement amount. Having a lawyer on the case from the beginning helps preserve the evidence in your favor, which makes your case stronger. The trucking company will be on the scene immediately to investigate. Things like witness statements, skid marks, broken glass, and other debris are important clues as to liability. The stronger the case that the trucking company was at fault, the stronger your ability to negotiate a better than average settlement.

The second factor that affects your settlement for a trucking accident is the level of damages suffered. 18-wheelers can cause serious injuries like paralysis, back pain, neck pain, and brain injuries. The cost of your treatment is one thing that the insurance company takes into consideration when evaluating your claim. They will also look at lost wages and compromised quality of life. Calculating your damages is another area where not hiring a lawyer can hurt you. We know all the different types of damages that you are entitled to and we know how to prove those damages.
