Imagine you’re driving along Hampton Boulevard on your way to MacArthur Center Mall in Norfolk, Virginia (VA) when a truck suddenly veers into your lane and slams into you. As a result, you suffer a serious injury that leaves you incapacitated for weeks.
You may be thinking, “What can I do to make sure my medical expenses are taken care of?” You may also be worrying, “When will I be able to go back to work?” These are common questions pretty much everyone involved in a serious truck accident contemplates.
Consulting with a Norfolk truck accident lawyer can help you get answers. A very important piece of advice is not to listen solely to the trucking company claims adjuster. They might say you don’t really need to hire an attorney to handle your claim, just work with their legal department to get a settlement offer. Do not be fooled. This is an attempt to reduce their financial liability by making a low-ball offer in the hopes that you accept.
Our trucking accident injury attorneys encounter this situation all the time. Victims who’ve been hurt in major tractor trailer wrecks on Interstate 264 (I-264), I-564, I-64, Route 60, Route 13, in and around Northampton Boulevard are given “advice” by the trucking insurance company like providing a recorded statement immediately after the accident or signing documents without much explanation as to what’s in those documents. Again, these are tactics they use to reduce how much money they have to pay out for your injury claim.
This is why it is so important to speak with a Norfolk truck accident injury lawyer. We’ve seen all the tricks and tactics to delay and deny legitimate personal injury claims. Hiring a competent Norfolk truck accident attorney also provides peace of mind.
