The costs of a Columbia truck accident aren’t easy to calculate. You may have suffered long-term, complex injuries, not to mention the financial and emotional toll.
Insurance companies are supposed to make life easier, but they’re still for-profit companies. They may try to avoid paying out for your settlement.

Even if you feel fine, you may have suffered an internal injury, one that can change your life if left untreated. Take your first chance to receive a medical evaluation. Documenting any injuries immediately after an accident makes them irrefutable to an insurer.

Insurance companies want to settle as soon as possible after your accident. They’ve made it a practice to offer way less than what you’re owed in hopes you accept before speaking to an injury lawyer to understand what your claim is actually worth. Always consult a lawyer about your truck accident claim’s value before accepting an insurance settlement.

Struggling to get the answers you need when you’re hurt in a truck accident? Free advice could leave you confused and may even lead to mistakes.
Here’s the good news—our lawyers have the answers you need. If you’re unsure whether to involve a lawyer, check out our frequently-asked questions below, then reach out for a free consultation, where we’ll discuss your claim-specific needs.
Truck accidents caused by someone’s negligence can cause severe injuries like brain damage, spinal cord injury, and severe burns. You’re already juggling many responsibilities and worries, and without experience, it’s easy to lose part or all of your compensable damages to avoidable mistakes. Because of this, you need a lawyer to help you make the right choices to make your claim a success.
After a truck collision, you may have grounds for a lawsuit, but what’s your case worth? That depends on the financial toll the accident caused, which is compensated by pursuing economic damages. Also, the emotional suffering you experienced, like emotional anguish and disfigurement which is compensated by pursuing non-economic damages. All of these forms of loss and hardship can impact your life for years, but these forms of loss are compensable. Your lawyer can help you calculate the short- and long-term impacts of these injuries, loss, and hardship to determine the compensatory damages you’re owed.
When you’re hurt in a truck accident, you may just want to settle your claim without a lengthy court case. Sometimes the insurance company is willing to settle fairly with you. But when negotiations fail, you may need to take your claim to court to receive the compensation you’re entitled to. Your lawyer can help you make the best decision for your case, and they are prepared to represent you in the courtroom when necessary.
Identifying the liable party first depends on the cause of the accident. For example, when truckers are careless on the road, it may be the employer’s responsibility to compensate you. But if a third party caused the accident, you may need to seek out that party. Our lawyers are here to provide extensive investigations and help you identify who’s liable for your injuries and also to protect you from other parties trying to shed liability onto you.
The exact costs of the damage, injuries, and suffering you’ve experienced can vary depending on the details of your case. But we can ensure we’ll fight for your maximum settlement. When truckers act with negligence, your compensation should address every way the accident has negatively affected your life. If you’re not sure what your truck accident settlement should be worth, reach out for help today.
