If you or a loved one have been harmed in an 18-wheeler accident, you and/or you loved one will tragically endure significant pain and suffering, economic burdens, property loss, and substantial medical costs. This can be an extremely stressful time for your family. Unfortunately, Insurance companies know that these accident cases carry substantial policy limits and the payouts could reach a million dollars or more depending on the facts and circumstances of the accident. Therefore, insurance company representatives and claims adjusters often try to take advantage of the claimants state of mind after an accident. Remember, insurance claims adjusters' top goal is to payout as little as possible or avoid paying on claims. 

According to an Insurance Research Council (IRC) study

  • 85% of accident injury victims who received an accident claim payout were represented by an attorney. 
  • Claimants injured and retained an attorney typically received higher payouts than unrepresented claimants. 
  • On average, accident injury victim claimants who retained lawyers received 300% more monetary compensation than those who did not retain legal representation.
