How a Truck Accident Attorney Can Help
The experience of being in an accident is stressful enough without having to worry about how to get full compensation for your injuries, lost wages or future earnings, and other losses as a result of the accident. An East Georgia truck accident attorney from Ben F. Windham, P.C. can help assess your rights and handle the entire process for you.
Attorneys Work on Your Behalf to Get You the Compensation You Need
After a truck crash, knowing which party is liable for the damages is often very difficult to determine. Investigating and collecting evidence that can help determine who is to blame is an essential function of a truck accident attorney. You can bet the trucking companies will have investigators and adjusters at the scene of the crash whenever possible, and they are seeking ways to avoid liability. You want your own advocate working to prove liability.
Before you know it, you might receive a quick offer of settlement from the insurance company of the trucking corporation. While this settlement might seem like it covers your immediate medical bills, and it might sound nice to have a quick check without having to navigate the whole process, accepting this settlement without a lawyer is a mistake. It likely fails to account for most of your damages – damages that could be very significant.
Knowing that the other driver’s insurance companies and attorneys do not work for you is important, and having an attorney by your side ensures that your interests are not overlooked. Quickly settling for less than the full amount possible is how insurance companies make a profit, and an experienced attorney knows how much you should receive and how to recover it for you in your case.
