Top 5 Ways to Maximize Your Semi-Truck Accident Settlement in Idaho
Semi-truck accidents often lead to complex issues when dealing with the insurance company. Though you may be tempted to try to settle the case yourself, hiring an experienced semi-truck accident lawyer from Brent Gordon Law Firm will get you more money, faster. A commercial truck company is sure to be represented by a big insurance company with deep pockets. Brent Gordon Law Firm believes every client deserves fair representation against big insurance companies with deep pockets. Our experienced truck lawyers will fight for every penny you deserve. It is important for you to understand the steps you as the client need to take to help us maximize your trucking accident settlement. The following are the top five ways to maximize your semi-truck accident settlement in Idaho.
1. Immediately Seek Medical Attention
Semi-truck accident often leads to serious or even deadly injuries. It is important to first seek medical attention following a serious semi-truck accident. Seeking treatment will not only get you on the path to recovery, but the medical professional who treats you will create medical records that can later be used to help your case.
2. Follow All Instructions from Your Medical Professionals
It is important to follow all instructions from your doctors and go to all your scheduled appointments. Failure to show at medical appointments gives the insurance company an excuse to reduce your settlement value claiming that you are not seeking medical treatment they are paying for. They may also claim that your injuries were not that severe because you didn’t even bother to follow the doctor’s treatment plan.
3. Avoid Speaking with the Insurance Company
Trucking companies are known for having resourceful insurers who known how to make you settle for less, so they pay out as little as possible. It is their goal to try and get you to settle quickly so as to only pay out the minimum amount. Though it may be tempting to resolve the case quickly, in the end it is likely you will lose out on hundreds or even thousands by choosing to settle quickly. Instead, trust the semi-truck accident attorneys at Brent Gordon Law Firm to get you a fair settlement from the insurance company. Avoid speaking with the insurance without your attorney. If they do call, only answer the bare minimum and instead direct them to your attorney.
4. Provide Proof of All Lost Income
If your injuries caused you to miss work, you will need to provide detailed documentation to your attorney in order to be fully compensated for any lost income. Often truck accidents cause serious injures which can keep a victim from returning to work for several weeks. This loss of income can be compensated for during the settlement, but proper documentation is needed. Documentation includes paperwork from your employer stating the amount of compensation that you normally would receive along with the amount of time missed.
