Liability insurance coverage is not just a federally mandated requirement for all motorists. It is one of the best ways for victims to acquire at least some financial compensation after a crash. As you might expect, having liability insurance is particularly important for truck drivers and/or trucking companies. This is because truck accidents between large trucks and smaller passenger vehicles typically result in severe physical harm.
Our attorneys know how desperately Illinois truck accident victims need compensation after a collision. Without adequate finances, these victims cannot get all of the medical care they may need to make a full recovery. Unfortunately, even the insurance payout victims do acquire is still not enough to meet their financial needs in many cases.
This is one of the main reasons we always encourage accident victims to seek legal representation. Help from an injury lawyer can open the door to all forms of compensation. For example, the experience attorneys have in dealing with insurance companies ensures that victims receive the maximum policy payments that they deserve.
An attorney can also help if you decide to pursue a personal injury claim against a truck driver, a trucking company or an auto part manufacturer. Such action may enable you to acquire additional compensation on top of the insurance claims you have filed.
When you or a family member suffer catastrophic injuries in a truck accident, exploring all sources of compensation is a critical way for you to make ends meet in the aftermath. We urge you to reach out to us for help if you are an accident victim. You may also continue exploring the resources that are available on our firm’s website.
