Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • What is my case worth?

    Answer

    Every case is different and it would be irresponsible to give a ballpark number or dollar amount for your specific claim. There are several things that we will need to consider before determining the potential amount of financial compensation available in your situation. In the most general sense, you may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages, such as medical care, lost income, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.

  • What if I received an insurance settlement?

    Answer

    We know that the last thing you may want is a long, drawn-out legal battle. Unfortunately, accepting the first settlement check that comes your way could actually end up jeopardizing your future and your overall well-being. Insurance companies are notorious for providing pitifully low-ball offers to accident victims. We are prepared to fight to make sure your case is valued to the fullest extent so that you receive the proper financial recovery you need and deserve.

  • I’ve heard about a black box. What role does this play?

    Answer

    Most commercial vehicles, including big rigs and semi-trucks, are equipped with electronic on-board recorders. These are also commonly known as a “black box.” This recorder stores data about a truck’s behavior, such as speed or brake application, in the event of an accident or collision. Due to the nature of this recorded information, it is crucial that you act immediately after an accident in order to preserve this evidence before it is deleted or erased.

  • When should I contact a lawyer?

    Answer

    Because there is a time limit on when you can file a truck accident claim, it is highly important that you speak with a legal professional immediately after a collision. Because these cases are extremely time-sensitive, you will not have the luxury of taking your time. Speak with us today to learn more about your State’s statute of limitations and we can help you take the first step towards getting the justice you deserve.
