Truck Accident Insurance Claims
Representing Truck Accident Victims in Houston, TX
If you were involved in a truck accident, you will have to deal with an insurance claim in order to seek financial compensation for your injuries. You may have to deal with your insurance provider and the insurance company of the trucking company, something that can present a number of challenges – particularly if an insurer attempts to give you the run-around, to offer a low settlement or to outright deny a valid claim. Fortunately, an attorney can offer legal representation to help you handle your insurance claim to the best possible result.
At Stern Law Group, we represent clients in and around the Houston area. Our legal team handles truck accident insurance claims of all kinds, including those involving truck driver fatigue, substance abuse, overloaded trucks or other types of driver or trucking company negligence and wrongdoing. We can also take on claims involving third party liability, such as a truck manufacturer. Every claim we handle receives individualized attention so we can take whatever approach is needed to seek the best result for a client.
Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Claim
The primary objective in handling a truck accident insurance claim is to recover a settlement or award that covers all of a victim's injuries and losses. This should include both economic and non-economic damages, as needed, from medical bills to emotional trauma and everything in between. Some of the losses covered by an insurance claim may include:
- Medical bills
- Medical supplies
- Ongoing medical care
- Physical therapy
- Lost earnings
- Loss of future earnings
- Funeral expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
One of the key parts of handling a claim is determining the fair and full value of the claim. Our attorneys often work with medical professionals, economists, psychologists and other experts to determine what economic and emotional impact a victim's injuries have had and will have in the future. We can then present this information as evidence in court or during negotiations to show what our client should receive. In negotiating with the insurance company or taking a client's case to court, we will then pursue maximum compensation.
Call a Houston Truck Accident Attorney
The catastrophic injuries often associated with truck accidents make involving an attorney all the more important. While a minor car accident may cause little to no injury or property damage alone, there is a high likelihood of debilitating injury in a truck accident. Medical bills can quickly add up to tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, and a victim may lose a considerable amount of income from missing work for an extended period of time. A victim's insurance claim and/or lawsuit may be his or her only way of rebuilding and moving on.
