Truck Accident Settlements
Each year, there are several thousand non-fatal truck accidents in the United States. Chances are, however, that anyone who’s been involved in a truck accident has sustained physical bodily injuries as well as property damages. In these instances, you have the option to try and recover damages from the responsible party. Depending on your attorney’s advice and the circumstances surrounding your case, having your lawsuit settled instead of going to trial may be the better option.
Since every truck accident is different, there are several factors that weigh into whether you should settle your case or take it to trial. The first factor is the severity of your injuries and the future of prognosis of your medical conditions. In addition, you’ll need to weigh in how much time you’ve lost from work, how the accident affects your mental stability, and how strong your case is according to your physical and mental injuries.
Furthermore, you’ll need to determine how much the other party’s insurance is willing to pay out and if that amount will cover all of the damages, as well as the laws in your state as far as damages being recovered. State laws differ in the amounts that you can recover, and some states allow victims to recover more monetary compensation than others.
Before you decide to accept a settlement, it’s crucial to seek the advice of a truck accident attorney. Only an experienced truck accident attorney will be able to tell you if your case is worth settling, or pursuing more damages by taking it to trial. Since there are so many variables in truck accident cases, each lawsuit has its own unique set of factors.
