Any time you need to take legal action against a negligent party for injuries sustained, it can be complicated. Challenges can arise and you may wonder if the results you may receive are even worth the hassle of what you’re enduring.
Before you move forward, you should understand some of the challenges you can experience and why they exist. This can help you better prepare for the process and what’s to come, allowing you to protect yourself and your rights when they matter most.
Trucking companies are part of a large industry with billions in revenue. This doesn’t make them untouchable, however, especially when it can be shown that negligence was involved in causing a serious crash resulting in injuries.
These large corporations can seem like they have endless resources: money to hire experts, large legal teams, and intimidation. However, they’re not invincible. All you need is the ability to show liability, which requires various forms of proof that there was a duty of care, that duty was breached, the breach resulted in an accident, and the accident caused a significant injury.
Many insurance companies offer low settlements because they believe truck accident victims are in a vulnerable state. They’re injured, dealing with emotional pain and suffering, and worse yet, they need money to pay for the mounting medical bills, lost income, and more.
Insurance companies are hoping that this is enough to get all injured parties to accept a settlement no matter what the offer is. You should know that you have rights to deny the settlement offer if it is not in line with what you truly deserve and proceed with taking on the large corporation with the help of your own legal representation.
