What Is My Truck Accident Case Worth?
Several factors contribute to the value of your truck accident case. So, there’s no way that we can give a specific formula or dollar amount here. We can tell you how hard we’ll work to get you every dollar you deserve. We can also tell you some factors that impact your claim’s value. They include:
- The severity of your injuries
- If there was a fatality
- Whether you share any fault for the truck accident
- Whether you wore your seatbelt
- How long your recovery will take (or if you’re permanently disabled)
Because of the catastrophic potential of truck accidents, trucking companies typically carry much higher insurance coverage on their vehicles. However, insurance companies will try to minimize what your claim is worth – even if your injuries are severe. We’re here to help protect you from their unfair tactics.
