Most people are hesitant to hire an 18-wheeler accident lawyer for at least one of several reasons. Here are some of the most common hesitations our clients ask us about:
They think they can’t afford a lawyer.
Fortunately, there’s nothing to afford. As personal injury lawyers, our fee is based on a contingency fee. If you are awarded a settlement, we earn a percentage of it. If you don’t, we eat the cost and you pay nothing. So you have no financial obligation or out of pocket expenses when you hire the Biggs & Greenslade Law Firm as your truck accident lawyers.
They believe their accident will not qualify for a claim.
Each accident is a unique event that has unique challenges. The only way to know for sure whether your claim is worth pursuing is to consult an experienced legal professional. Instead of choosing not to pursue a claim, the best first step is to call Biggs & Greenslade and set up a free consultation with one of our truck accident lawyers. We will discuss the facts of your case and advise you on your best next steps.
They’ve already been offered a settlement from an insurance company.
Often, insurance companies will offer what seem like generous settlements to victims of truck accidents. Many people accept the offer without knowing that they may be owed much more. That’s why it’s essential to consult a personal injury lawyer before accepting a settlement offer from an insurance or trucking company.
When it comes to truck accident victims, we’ve won millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. However, each case is different. We can’t provide an estimate without examining the details of your case. What we can tell you is that the settlement amount for these claims is assessed using several factors. Two primary categories are used to determine the amount you deserve for your personal injury case: economic and non-economic damages.
Losses, or “damages,” that have a definite monetary value are called economic damages. They include:
Damages that do not have a definite monetary value are called non-economic damages. They include:
If an insurance company has offered you a settlement, it is unlikely they have accounted for all these damages, which means they are not paying you what you deserve. That’s why we urge you to please contact the Biggs & Greenslade Law Firm today to schedule a free legal consultation with one of our professional truck accident attorneys. We will work hard to win you the highest settlement possible.
