Truck Accidents vs Car Accidents
First of all, trucks, 18-wheelers are governed by federal law and federal regulation, and these regulations set out safety rules to make the trucking industry safer. However, if a trucking company does not follow these safety rules, and that results in an accident in which someone gets hurt, then the trucking company and their insurance company are responsible for that injury or that accident.
The other difference is that trucking companies are required to carry insurance. There are states where that’s not required in a car, for example. Since trucking companies are required to have insurance, there is the ability to compensate you for your injuries and the harm that’s been done to you and your family.
Accepting the First Settlement Offer
First of all, you should never, ever accept the first offer that an insurance company makes to you to resolve your claim. The first offer is part of a strategy by the insurance company to try their best to pay you as little as possible. If the question is, “Should I accept the first offer made to me by the insurance company?” the answer is an absolute no.
