Should I accept the settlement offer for my truck accident?

You should not accept any settlement without speaking with a truck accident attorney first.

Right now, it might seem like the settlement offer is a good deal. The dollar amount may appear high, you can get the settlement quickly, and you won’t have to pay a lawyer. However, insurance truck accident settlement offers are rarely fair unless an attorney represents you.

Why the Insurance Company Wants to Settle

The insurance company wants to settle quickly so that it can maximize its profits. By trying to get you to settle before you know the full extent of your injuries and before you talk to a lawyer who can explain your rights, the insurance company hopes to get you to settle for less than your case is worth. Once you agree to a settlement, the settlement is final and its terms almost always prevent you from seeking additional compensation for your truck accident injuries in the future.

How a Truck Accident Lawyer Can Help You

If the settlement offer includes fair compensation for your truck accident injuries, then your lawyer will advise you to settle. With an attorney’s review, you can be confident that you haven’t left any money on the table and that you are treated fairly.

However, if the settlement offer does not include compensation for all of your truck accident injuries, then your attorney will advise you of your options. Your lawyer may keep negotiating on your behalf and will make sure that your case is filed in court before the statute of limitations expires so that you can pursue a truck accident case if a fair settlement can’t be reached.
