Commercial Vehicle Accident Claims in Philadelphia
If you have been involved in a commercial truck or other business vehicle accident, getting compensation for your property damage or car accident-related injuries isn’t always as easy as filing a claim with the driver’s or company’s insurance provider. You may need the help of a commercial vehicle accident attorney.
Why You Need a Commercial Vehicle Accident Attorney’s Help
Insurance companies do not want to pay out large sums of money, and they have powerful legal representation fighting to say they do not have to. Insurance companies may try to prove that you are liable for the commercial vehicle accident or offer you a settlement that doesn’t adequately cover your expenses.
Fighting back on your own can be time consuming, frustrating and possibly ineffective if you do not have the right resources. Experienced commercial vehicle accident attorneys give you the edge you need to build an effective case for a fair settlement.
Calculating a Fair Commercial Vehicle Accident Claim
Initial settlement offers from insurance companies may look attractive as a lump sum, but when you calculate the real cost of property damage and injuries sustained in a commercial vehicle accident, chances are the settlement is too little.
A fair claim amount should reflect all damages—physical and emotional:
- Vehicle repairs or replacement
- Alternate transportation while your vehicle is being serviced
- Medical expenses, including future treatments and therapy
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If you lost a loved one in a commercial vehicle accident, you may be eligible to claim further damages in a wrongful death lawsuit.
