Already Offered a Settlement? Why You Should Still Talk to a Lawyer

Victims are not required to hire an attorney to pursue a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, and if you have already been offered a settlement it may seem unnecessary to hire one. It is, however, still incredibly important to consult with a professional who will advocate for your rights, negotiate the best settlement, and protect you from any unforeseen difficulties.

Hiring a professional can benefit victims in the following ways

  • Evaluate your case to determine all potential negligent parties and damages you are entitled to.
  • Gather evidence, ensuring it is as strong as possible, and calculating all applicable losses.
  • Negotiate with powerful insurance agencies, the trucking company, and potentially other third parties.
  • Provide you with expert guidance, meaning you are making the best, informed decisions for you.
  • Reduce your stress by dealing with deadline compliances, paperwork, and communicating with the opposing parties and their insurance companies. Being involved in an 18 wheeler wreck can be difficult, and your time should be spent focused on the recovery and healing process.

When you accept a settlement, you typically are giving up the right to sue for further compensation. Insurance agencies will often offer you a settlement that is less than you are entitled to. A truck accident attorney in Victoria, TX on your side ensures you are better equipped to pursue justice.

Potential Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Damages You May Qualify For

Damages for personal injuries are generally broken into three categories. Personal injury plaintiffs in Texas are eligible to file for the following damages:

  1. Economic: Losses like hospital stays, loss of income, ongoing treatments, physical therapy, and more.
  2. Noneconomic: Losses like pain and suffering, mental anguish, anxiety, depressions, PTSD, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of companionship, loss of society, and more.
  3. Punitive: These damages are assigned at a judge’s discretion when they feel a defendant’s, or accused party’s, actions or inactions were particularly harmful, dangerous, or extremely careless.

If your damages following the incident are severe, the trucking accident lawyers in Victoria, Texas at Carabin Shaw can help. If you or a loved one are looking to pursue a wrongful death claim on behalf of someone who lost their life due to a trucking collision, you may also qualify for additional damages including:
