How Much Is My Truck Accident Claim Worth?
If you have been in a truck accident or any other type of auto accident, you want to know how much your claim is worth. This is a valid question. It is also a complex question.
The quick answer is that you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering. Add up all your costs, and you will have a rough idea of what your claim might be worth, right? Unfortunately, it is not quite that easy.
The insurance company will make it seem easy though. You may be contacted by an insurance adjuster while you are still recovering. You may be offered a settlement that, on the surface, seems reasonable, seems like it will cover the costs you have accrued.
The truth is that recovery from a serious injury takes time. Doctors do their best to prescribe effective treatment, from surgeries to physical therapy. They may offer predictions about recovery time, but that is all they are: predictions.
You do not want a settlement for a motor vehicle accident such as a truck accident to be based on a prediction. You want to be certain that you are getting compensation that will cover all of your costs. For that reason, your question, “How much is my claim worth?”, is not one that comes with a fast, easy answer.
