Should I Settle My Truck Accident Case With the Trucking Company?
Because trucking companies are big and often have more of a financial advantage, they can easily gain the upper hand in these cases.
When someone is the victim of a truck accident, they sometimes think that they are better off settling their case directly with the truck company. They believe that hiring a lawyer to handle their case will cost them more money.
Accidents involving large trucks have the potential to be more complicated. It is often necessary to have expert witnesses that explain issues involving the brakes, steering, speed, driver fatigue and truck maintenance. Truck accident cases also often involve defective product issues which also require expert testimony.
Because trucking companies are big and often have more of a financial advantage, they can easily gain the upper hand in these cases. Federal laws require trucks to have larger insurance limits than regular passenger vehicles. So in the event of an accident there is more money at stake. This may encourage the insurance company to pursue the case, with their lawyers, more aggressively. This would prove to be detrimental to you, especially in a case involving serious injuries and substantial wage loss.
You can be sure that in a serious truck accident case, the trucking companies representatives or corporate attorneys will be present. They will be intimidating and this may often prove to be overwhelming for the victim.
