Even though it may be fairly obvious that you did not cause your collision with a commercial truck, you could still face a number of difficulties receiving the compensation that you deserve for your injuries and damages. Neither the company that owns the truck in question nor your own automobile insurance provider may be willing to cover the full amount of your medical expenses and other losses, and the process of negotiating an appropriate settlement amount can be quite involved. We here at the law offices of Finbury & Sullivan, P.C., are well acquainted with the legal complexities of proving fault and achieving damages in truck accident injury cases, and are committed to advocate on behalf of our clients.
As an accident victim, one of the most challenging aspects of pursuing compensation for your injuries and damages can actually be dealing with your own insurance provider. Insurance companies generally prefer to settle injury claims early, and typically attempt to achieve payout amounts that fall well below covering the full amount of damages to accident victims. Therefore, it can be incredibly helpful to have the experience and guidance of professional legal counsel when it comes to communicating with your insurance company and determining an appropriate estimate for your injury claim.
Another factor that can play a major role in determining whether or not you receive the damages that you are entitled to is the accurate determination of liability in your case. Collisions involving commercial trucks are different than many others, as professional truck drivers are obligated to abide by Massachusetts State and federal safety regulations at all times. In the event that professional negligence and/or outright wrongdoing on the part of the truck driver and/or trucking company contributed to your accident incident, you could be entitled to considerable damages. That is why it is often crucial to conduct an independent accident investigation in order to establish liability.
The ultimate outcome of your truck accident injury case can depend upon a large number of factors and legal considerations. Visit our web page today to learn more about truck driver liability and other related topics.
