If you are the victim of a car accident, particularly one where a commercial truck is involved, you may be entitled to compensation for injuries sustained as well as for your automobile repairs. Truck accidents may occur due to various factors ranging from driver error to bad road or weather conditions, but regardless of how the accident happened, if you are not at fault you could have a claim. In a perfect world the insurance company contacted will compensate you for hospital and repair bills, but if the truck’s company decides not to assist with the claim you may wonder what to do. In these cases, it may be necessary to contact a personal injury lawyer who practices truck accident law.

If you have not before contacted a truck accident lawyer to help with a case, you probably have many questions to ask that you don’t know where to start. It’s natural to feel nervous, especially if you’ve been hurt and are anxious about getting the bills paid. It will help any attorney if you have detailed information about your accident – the where, when, and how – and all paperwork relating to your totaled car and hospital stay, where applicable. When you meet with an attorney, here are a few things you may wish to ask.

1)      Do I have a case? Often accident cases go unclaimed because the victims do not feel confident that they will receive compensation. If you are hurt and have to miss work as a result, it is important to make your claim so you will have the money you need while you recover. A good attorney can help you determine if your case is valid.

2)      Will I go to court? Many accident cases are settled out of court. If you are fortunate, your lawyer will get your claim approved without taking the insurance company before a judge. For this to happen, you’ll need to provide your lawyer with your information so your case is thoroughly researched.

3)      How much will you take? A good lawyer gets paid when you get your money. Make sure you know how much is due your lawyer when the case is settled.

4)      When will I get my money? Not all bills will wait. Make sure you get a good idea of when to expect payment should your claim be approved.

A good truck accident lawyer will answer your questions directly and honestly. If you are hit by a truck, do not wait to explore your options.
