Do You Have to Go to Court for a Truck Accident? 

If you have been injured in a truck accident that was caused by the trucker’s negligence, the path forward toward just compensation and complete recovery is likely to be long and winding. And if you’re worried about having to take the matter to court, it can add an additional layer of complication and concern. The good news is that the vast majority of truck accident claims are settled out of court, and if yours is one of the rare cases that does land in court, your experienced Clearwater truck accident attorney will be well prepared to effectively and efficiently handle the matter.

Negotiating a Settlement

From here, you’ll proceed to negotiations with the insurance company – in pursuit of a just settlement that adequately addresses every category of loss you experience. If the insurance company engages in fair negotiation practices and is willing to address the matter honestly, there is every chance that your claim will settle. If not, however, your attorney will likely advise you to file a lawsuit against them. You may even find that by filing, you motivate the insurance company to redouble their negotiation efforts.
