Filing a truck accident claim

Truck accidents in Illinois can be some of the most devastating types of motor vehicle collisions. When a large commercial truck hits a much smaller passenger vehicle, the passenger vehicle occupants usually suffer the gravest injuries. If the truck driver was at fault for the accident, injured victims can sue the truck driver and their employers.

Truck accidents can take longer to settle

Personal injury claims involving truck accidents typically take longer to settle than regular car accident claims. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first reason is that truck accidents usually involve more severe injuries and more extensive property damage. The second reason is that truck driving insurance providers usually conduct their own investigations and may engage in lengthy negotiations with the victims’ lawyers.

Some truck accident claims are settled within a few months while others take more than one year to be settled. The length of time will depend on how serious the accident was, how expensive the damages are and how many victims and negligent parties are involved.

Evidence in a truck accident claim

If you have been involved in a serious truck accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your medical records will be a key piece of evidence in your truck accident claim, and your case may not be settled until the extent of your injuries is documented. In some cases, truck accident claims are not settled until the victim has recovered, because it is only then that the full extent of damages can be calculated.

You should keep careful records of all of your financial damages that resulted from the truck accident you were involved in. Some examples of records to keep include your medical bills, your missed workdays and your car repair bills.
