1. Settlement Timeline

4 Ways To Get Ahead on Your Truck CaseA case involving a commercial tractor-trailer accident can often take 18 months to resolve. That’s on the low side. If it’s a severe truck accident, it could take up to three years. Why? Because those are some of the most devastating accidents there are involving some of the most horrific injuries there can be. We have to examine the injuries, what it took to heal, how much it will cost, and whether or not the insurance company will be fair. If the insurance company doesn’t bring forward a reasonable offer, then that makes us have to file suit. If we have to file a suit, then we have to look at the court’s docket to see how many cases are in front of us before we can have a trial date.

2. Case Timeline

Predicting the timeline of a truck accident claim can be difficult at the beginning. It’s going to depend on the type of injury you’ve suffered, how long the healing process takes, and whether the insurance company agrees to offer full and fair compensation.

3. Insurance Investigation

When you open an insurance claim, it’s important to avoid common mistakes that can damage the value of your claim. Hiring a truck accident lawyer is extremely helpful because your lawyer knows how to avoid these mistakes.

When you’ve retained a truck accident lawyer to handle your claim, communicating with one voice will help protect your claim’s value. The best way to present a unified front is through your attorney.

The best way to achieve this is to speak with your lawyer and allow them to investigate the case. Your attorney will put the insurance company on notice and speak on your behalf. This ensures you’re not giving conflicting information to the insurance company, preventing confusion and damage to your claim.

4. Injury Claims

In a car-to-car accident injury, you’re dealing with what we call “the rules of the road.” You know, whether someone failed to stop at a stop sign or whether or not they failed to yield the right of way, things like that.

In a truck accident injury claim that involves a commercial vehicle, however, you have what we call “federal motor carrier safety rules and regulations.” These are rules and regulations both federally mandated and adopted by the state of Texas that dictate what professional truck drivers should or should not be doing.
