What makes commercial truck drivers different?
When it comes to commercial truck drivers, it is important to understand that they are held to seriously high safety standards. This means there are more rules for how long they can be on the road, what kind of a load they can carry, and how well their truck is operating. That said, commercial vehicle drivers often find themselves under pressure from their company or the company they are delivering to. They may be asked to drive for longer periods of time without taking a break so that they can meet their deadline or drive in unsafe circumstances. A truck accident lawyer DC offers knows that this can make accidents more likely to happen.
Should I speak with the insurance company about getting compensation for my injuries?
We understand that getting into an accident can be devastating and that you may need compensation quickly so that you can pay off medical bills. That said, trying to negotiate on your own with the commercial vehicle driver’s insurance company is not the first thing you will want to do. They have no qualms about giving you a low, unfair settlement offer and may even try to convince you that the accident was your fault. Instead, feel free to say you will not be speaking to them without your attorney present or simply state you will have your attorney conduct all negotiations on your behalf. You want to ensure you have someone who will:
- Examine the evidence from the accident scene
- Understand the injuries you received from the accident
- Not take the first lowball offer you get from the insurance company
- Fight to get you the settlement you deserve
