Whose Insurance Covers Your Damages?

Sometimes, the question of why a truck accident happened is not as important as the question of who will pay for it now that it did. You know that you are owed significant damages for your medical bills, lost wages, vehicle repairs, pain, suffering, and so on. But you might not know whose insurance covers those damages. This is where our team can step in and make sense of everything.

In the average truck accident case, there are two policies to file against:

  • Truck driver’s personal policy: Many truck drivers are independent contractors when working. If they cause an accident, it can be difficult to pass liability entirely upwards to their employer. During such a case, we might first have to file against the trucker’s privately held insurance policy.
  • Trucking company’s policy: If damages remain unpaid after filing against the truck driver, or if the trucker was an official employee, then we can consider filing against the trucking company’s insurance policy that covers all their workers. Such policies are usually much larger and, therefore, can provide more damages before capping out.

How to Determine Liability

Figuring out what party owes you what compensation and how much depends on the liability for the accident. In this way, your actions before, during, and after the truck accident matter, too. If you did something negligent that contributed to the crash, then your liability will go up and your total recovery will go down. You might even lose the ability to recover anything if you were mostly liable for the wreck.

Our team can use convincing evidence in various forms to prove you weren’t liable, such as:

  • Dashcam footage
  • Testimonies from drivers who stopped to help
  • Police and EMT reports
  • Truck “black box” data

We want to bring your liability down to 0%, which will give you the right to demand 100% of your owed damages from the defendant or defendants. We are ready to go to great lengths to make this happen, such as hiring accident reconstruction experts if necessary. The cost of hiring such an expert can even be added to your owed compensation.

Catastrophic Injuries Call for Serious Counsel

Catastrophic injuries often follow truck accidents, such as:

  • Amputations: A violent truck accident can cause life-changing injuries in an instant. For example, if a victim’s arm or leg is severely injured in the crash, then doctors might need to amputate.
  • Back and neck injuries: Chronic back pain and whiplash are not uncommon in truck accident survivors, especially when the injury was caused by a rear-end accident.
  • Brain injuries: If a motorist hits their head on the steering wheel or elsewhere during a truck accident, then they can suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that will require lifelong specialist care.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord damage can cause immediate and permanent paralysis. The higher the injury on the spine, the more body parts will be paralyzed.

To make sure that you can live as comfortably as possible after a bad truck accident, our team will calculate the full extent of your damages, including those that will be owed to you for harm or hardships that happen years in the future. Commonly, truck accident claims can reach millions of dollars of compensation when future damages are calculated.
