Time Required to Settle a Truck Crash Case

Truck CrashHow long your truck accident case takes to settle can vary depending on the details of the crash. However, it is true that crashes involving semis, big-rigs, or other large trucks often take longer to resolve than other types of motor vehicle accident cases—and for good reason. Truck accidents can cause devastating injuries and losses, so it’s essential to ensure you’re paid what you deserve. Fortunately, an experienced truck crash attorney can help.

After a truck accident, your attorney will conduct a thorough investigation to determine liability. This is absolutely crucial, as truck drivers, trucking companies, and their insurers may attempt to claim you were partially responsible for the crash, even if you did nothing wrong. Because your assigned percentage of fault can affect your financial recovery, it’s important that blame is placed with the appropriate party.

The possibility of multiple insurance policies can also contribute to the length of your truck accident case. Trucking companies often have insurance policies well in excess of the required minimums. Additionally, they may also have separate policies on the driver and the truck itself. Your attorney will examine all available policies to uncover avenues for compensation.

Of all the factors that can prolong a truck crash case, your injuries will have the biggest effect. It’s best not to settle until you’ve reached the point of maximum medical improvement (MMI), otherwise, you could find yourself responsible for medical expenses that would have been covered in your settlement.
