A regular contributor to Legal Herald and experienced truck accident attorney, Marc Lenahan shared the following info with families of victims involved in truck crashes:

"When a catastrophic truck crash occurs, the families of those invovled usually believe that their existing insurance policies will not only pay out quickly, but also ensure that all damages resulting from the incident are covered. Unfortunately, this could not be further from the truck. Simply put, insurance providers generally have a single goal, and that is to save as much money as possible.

To accomplish this mission, they will often hire experienced adjusters whose main responsibility is to decrease the amount of benefits that each individual policy pays out to victims. These adjusters have extensive experience seeking reasons that allow the insurance company to reduce the amount of compensation or even deny it outright. In the cases when the full amount of a policy is actually paid out, it is often not enough to cover all the physical and emotional damages that a truck accident can cause.

For these reasons, the law permits the families of victims, as well as the victims themselves, to purse a full compensation via a truck accident lawsuit.

Aside from paying for past and future medical bills, a truck crash lawsuit can also provide a compensation to cover other damages such as loss of income or diminished quality of life, among others. Moreover, since this is civil case, a criminal conviction of the opposing party is not required for the plaintiff to win the case.

The amount of compensation will always vary from case to case. As a result, it's vital for victims and their loved ones to find an experienced truck crash attorney who will analyze their case, determine all the applicable avenues for compensation, and then fight for every bit of it on behalf of their clients in a court of law."
