What To Do After Being Involved in a Big Rig/Semi-Truck Accident
Big rig/semi-truck accidents are some of the scariest and intimidating. Truck drivers are supposed to be trained and licensed professionals, but in some cases, they can fail to attend to their duties on the road here in Las Vegas. If you or a loved one have been injured by a truck accident or a collision with another commercial vehicle, you deserve compensation. Don’t let the trucking industry’s powerful attorneys push you around.
Right after a serious truck collision, it can be tempting to call your insurance and immediately file a claim. There are immediate medical costs and property damage costs to cover, in addition to the trauma of such a serious accident. But insurance companies may not be your best allies, for a number of reasons.
At the end of the day, both the trucking company and the insurance companies will look out for their own interests. When you try to negotiate with them or contact them for a claim, they can minimize the amount of money awarded to you for the injury. They can also try to lower the amount estimated for medical costs and property damage costs to the victim and their loved ones. For example, if the injured driver suffers serious whiplash after the accident, the companies may agree to cover the immediate hospital visit and initial costs of treatment, but they won’t cover all the costs of long-term rehabilitation and pain management. There’s also the issue of any lost wages from the victim’s disability and resulting inability to work.
