You may be contacted by so many insurance company representatives and adjustors after your accident occurs that it may be difficult to keep them all straight. This is one area in which a lawyer who is accustomed to dealing with this kind of catastrophe easily can take some of the stress off you and your family.
Gathering Evidence in Support of Your Claim
A truck injury attorney has expertise in gathering all of the necessary documents to support your personal injury claim against the responsible parties. In this type of accident, particularly if you have sustained severe physical damages, there may be hundreds and even thousands of documents that can be important evidence in your case. Some of these documents might include the following:
- Medical records from any emergency personnel, hospital, doctor, therapist, or other health care provider that treated you in any way as a result of your accident
- Police reports and witness statements
- Documentation of all applicable insurance policies and their coverage limits
- Evidence of a past history of violations by the trucking company or the driver
- The driving record of any other drivers involved in the accident
Valuing Your Personal Injury Claim
Your truck injury attorney also will need to evaluate your case thoroughly so that an approximate value can be placed on your claim for the purposes of litigation. While no monetary figure can fully compensate you for the pain, suffering, and potentially permanent debilitating injuries sustained in such an accident, there are ways to place a value on your claim. For instance, your lawyer will need to examine all of your medical bills stemming from the accident, and estimate whether you will need medical services in the future as a result of the incident. Lost wages or an inability to work also must be factored into the value of your claim. Since valuing a claim can be difficult and often requires the assistance of experts, you want the help of a qualified personal injury lawyer to assist you.
Settling or Litigating Your Claim
Your truck injury attorney knows that many such claims settle by reaching an agreement with the insurance companies. The settlement process often involves months or years of negotiations. However, in some cases, the parties simply cannot reach a mutually acceptable resolution. As a result, you will need the services of an experienced attorney with proven success in the courtroom in order to move forward through litigation.
