Are truck accident claims different from car accidents?
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident in Pennsylvania, there are certain steps that need to be followed before your claim can be resolved. First and foremost, you need to see a doctor right away. and be sure you follow that doctor’s protocol. Second, hire an attorney who is very experienced in truck accident claims as they are different than car accident claims. There are things that need to be investigated that you don’t investigate in a regular car crash and there are certain regulations involving trucks that are not involved in private passenger cars. Your attorney needs to know that.
The attorney that you hire should be a personal injury lawyer. They should prepare your case for trial from the first day moving forward, be familiar in presenting claims to the insurance companies, and advise you during a dependency of the claim as to what’s going on and what needs to be done. Once you’re done treating, your attorney will then prepare a settlement demand, enclosing documents that support your injuries and the compensation that you’re requesting.
There will be a negotiation period. Once that period is concluded, you will have the insurance company’s best offer. At that point, you can either accept it or reject it. You will talk more about that with your attorney and they will recommend what to do at that point. If the claim cannot be resolved at that point, a lawsuit will need to be filed and it will probably be a year to two years before a lawsuit will be resolved.
