Common Truck Accident Questions (& Answers!)\r\nTruck accidents entail a lot of complex decisions. That\u2019s why it\u2019s smart to have truck accident attorneys on hand to help you out and take care of your every legal need.\r\nWhat usually happens in a truck accident?\r\nTruck collisions often lead to devastating consequences, with about one in every highway death a result of a truck-related accident, says the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That\u2019s because trucks often weigh as much as 20 to 30 times a normal passenger car. With its greater ground clearance, it puts small cars at a definite disadvantage in collision accidents.\r\nIs an investigation needed?\r\nYes. The minute you get involved in an accident with a commercial truck, the trucking company will have its insurance team begin an investigation on-site. So if you aren\u2019t in any condition to gather any evidence onsite, you could lose this chance to find proof you can use when you file for a claim later on. You can prevent his from happening, though, if you have a\u00a0truck accident attorney\u00a0on your side to represent your interests and get you the evidence you need for your claim.\r\nDo I need a truck accident lawyer?\r\nFiling the claim on your own is easy and might be best if you sustained only minor injuries from the crash. However, if you\u2019re filing a claim to cover the cost of major injuries, high medical bills and the loss of your wages or clients, then you need legal assistance.\r\nDo I need to see a doctor?\r\nGiven the nature of the accident, it\u2019s possible that you might not even be aware of the extent of your injuries so make sure you have yourself thoroughly checked out and examined. Record any injuries you had from the accident.\r\nShould I settle?\r\nSettlements are good. After all, nobody wants drawn-out battles in court. Be careful about accepting one too soon, though. Often, insurance providers of trucking companies offer lowball offers. You might be getting so much less than what you should be entitled to.
