Insurance After a Truck Accident

Being in a truck accident is frightening enough, and having to deal with insurance after you have been injured or suffered car damage can be frustrating and upsetting. Insurance companies often make big promises when you are signing up for their services and paying the premiums. However, when it comes time to file a claim you may have a hard time getting the insurance amount than you think you deserve.

It’s not your imagination: insurance companies make money by collecting insurance premiums and by not paying out the full amount possible in every claim. Insurance companies have a vested financial interest in resolving claims quickly and inexpensively.

Unfortunately, after a truck accident your expenses tend to be significant. You may have spent time in a hospital or emergency room, may have needed surgery or other expensive treatment and may have ongoing costs as well. If you have had to have a limb amputated, for example, you may have to lose months or years of work or may not be able to return to your job at all. You will also need a lifetime of prosthetics and treatment as well as physical therapy and other medical support. All of this can add up. Even a laceration or fracture which can result in full recover can mean lost income, doctors’ visits, and other costs. Even if you’re lucky enough to walk away from a truck accident with so-called minor injuries, though seemingly minor injuries can add up to significant expenses.

Due to the high cost of medical care in South Florida as well as the likelihood you have been injured, it is important to consult with a truck accident attorney in Hollywood or your community if you have suffered any injury in a car or truck accident. After reviewing your situation, an attorney can offer legal advice and can represent you if you decide to file a legal claim. A legal claim allows you to seek compensation for your injuries so you do not face financial distress by having to pay for your costs out of pocket. If your insurance company is acting in bad faith or is not honoring your claim, an insurance attorney in Hollywood or Florida can negotiate with your insurance carrier to ensure you get the money you are entitled to.
