Have you been involved in a semi-truck accident? Were you significantly injured as a part of that accident? Are you wondering how to determine the monetary value of your injuries?
Let’s start with a very important point: Semi-truck accidents are handled completely differently than passenger vehicle accidents. You may have commercial policies that apply to your case. Semi-truck policies are mandated and regulated by the federal government. The federal government requires that semi-truck policies carry an amount in the millions because they need larger minimum policies.
How do we come up with a total value for your case? We have several factors that we look at. We will look at total medical bills, lost wages, injury severity, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. These can give us a clue as to what your total value may be, but you have to note that it is impossible to give you an exact amount until your case has been fully investigated.
A last note, don’t go for the quick settlement that the insurance company will try to offer you. They want to pay you off quickly because they don’t lose as much money that way. If you wait, others factors may come to light that can benefit you and get you the bigger settlement you deserve. You’ll want to have an experienced legal team on your side when facing a case like this. Watch the video to learn more.
