Truck Accident Cases in Stuart: FAQ
Stuart Truck Accident Lawyer
How do I determine what types of damages could be claimed in a truck accident case?
The injuries in such cases vary widely, from minor to catastrophic. Recovering the medical and rehabilitation costs are only part of the compensation that would likely be sought if you were represented by a Stuart truck accident lawyer from Lauri J. Goldstein & Associates, PLLC We carefully review every aspect of the injury case to ensure that a comprehensive claim or lawsuit is filed. We pursue maximum compensation for our injured clients.
What if the trucking company’s insurer offers
me a settlement?
You can be fairly certain that any settlement that is offered quickly is made in an effort to get you to accept less than you would with legal representation managing the case. Insurance companies know this and usually move quickly in the hopes that the injured will not contact an attorney. They may even urge the injured victim not to contact a lawyer. Who will protect YOUR best interests? Not the insurance company!
What if the truck driver was driving drunk?
When cases involve criminal negligence such as drunk driving, it is likely that our attorney will seek punitive damages.
What if the trucking company refuses to pay a valid claim?
Our attorney is a seasoned litigator and has no problem taking the case to court to fight for fair treatment. When the trucking company gets the claim or lawsuit, they usually realize that fighting the claim will not be successful. Our cases are well-researched and prepared. The majority of cases settle prior to a trial.
What if a family member died in a truck accident?
When negligence or reckless driving results in a fatality, the close family members have the legal right to file a wrongful death claim. This must be done as quickly as possible after the accident, as there is a statute of limitations that restricts the time in which such a case can be filed. Our attorney can help you determine how to move forward with a wrongful death lawsuit.
