Brian Kent, an experienced truck accident attorney, shared the following insight for victims and loved ones who may find themselves under similar circumstances:

“When most people hear about truck accidents, they’re often inclined to believe that any injuries or damages resulting from it will be completely covered by an insurance company.

However, the business model of an insurance company entails that insurance policies can’t all be paid out or the business will run out of money and go out of business. For this reason, these insurance providers hire expert adjusters whose sole job responsibility is to find ways to offer fewer benefits when a claim on a policy is made. In some cases, they will even deny insurance policy payouts completely.

For this reason, victims and their loves ones are left with few options that will allow them to receive the financial help they desperately need. Filing a truck accident lawsuit is one of the most effective avenues for victims to achieve the compensation they deserve.

The lawsuit can be filed against a party, entity, or individual who is believed to have acted in a negligent fashion and therefore caused the incident. If successful, the legal case will pay out a compensation to the victims that will be based on medical bills, emotional trauma, loss of income, physical pain and more.

To determine if you’re liable to file a lawsuit after suffering injuries in a truck accident, make sure to discuss your case with an experienced truck accident lawyer.”
