Truck Accident FAQ

Truck accidents can be some of the most severe that can arise. It’s easy for questions to arise after a crash, and we want to help you have answers. We want you to have vital answers so that you can move forward in your case with confidence. Check out our frequently asked questions and answers below!

How Much Is My Truck Accident Case Worth?

There are varying factors that impact your claim’s worth. Some of the most important factors to consider are how much you owe in medical bills, the costs of property damage, pain and suffering, and more. In many situations, you can factor in lost income as well for money you’re unable to make while dealing with your injury.

Who Investigates a Truck Accident?

While the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) will conduct investigations and issue truck accident reports, an attorney can be vital in investigating the collision. To determine fault, an attorney can review the truck’s onboard devices, key witness statements, and more.

What Can I Expect In a Truck Accident Case?

Trucking insurance companies are often quick to offer you a settlement for your damages. Before accepting anything, be sure to speak with a lawyer. A lawsuit can last months or years, depending on how long it takes to investigate the claim, go through depositions and discovery, and potential trial. Working with a lawyer is one of the most beneficial ways to get through a case quickly.

Does Insurance Cover Everything?

Insurance coverage is typically only enough to cover the costs of your losses up to the limits associated with the trucking company’s policy. However, you may also file a civil lawsuit to pursue your full compensation for your damages.

In any case, be sure to hire a lawyer to stand in your corner. Our Melbourne truck accident lawyers at Nance Cacciatore commit to your needs. We stand in your corner and pursue the maximum compensation you deserve after a severe collision.
