FAQ: Negotiating a Truck Accident Claim in Frederick, MD with the Help of Lawyers

truck accident lawyers Frederick MDIf you or someone you love has been injured in an accident with a truck, or if someone you love has died because of this, discussing your rights with truck accident lawyers Frederick, MD accident victims and their families can rely on, may help you to decide what your next steps should be.

If you are considering a truck accident claim, chances are you have a number of questions surrounding the process. If you have been injured, you will want to focus on your recovery as much as possible. A truck accident attorney may be able to provide you with all the answers you require and more important, a resolution to your truck or car accident claim.

How does the settlement process differ from a lawsuit?

A personal injury claim with the at fault driver’s insurance company, is usually the first step in attempting to gain compensation for your car or truck accident. Filing a claim does not (typically) involve the legal system at first but usually requires filing a claim with the insurance company. An insurance adjuster employed by the insurance company, will begin to look into your claim. They will take the time to assess the validity of your case and make a determination regarding how much the insurance company is willing to pay.  One way to help insure that you will receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to is to enlist the help of truck accident lawyers that are licensed to help people in Frederick and throughout MD (or wherever the accident occurred).

Lawsuits are often the next step to be taken in the event that the insurance company denies your claim, or you are unable to reach a fair agreement. Lawsuits involve the courts, often leaving the decision surrounding the damages you are requesting up to a judge, or a jury with a supervising judge. This process can be a much longer process then a settlement.

Should I negotiate with the insurance adjuster? Or accept their settlement offer?

It’s all too common for a truck or auto accident victim to receive a low initial offer from the insurance company. Remember, they are looking to save their company as much money as possible. Because of this, it’s vital that you have the appropriate evidence to prove your claim. As a result, it’s likely that you or your truck accident lawyers from Frederick, MD will need to negotiate with the insurance company. The result of this is usually a bargaining process between the insurance company and claimant or their attorney. Although it can be tempting to endure the settlement process without legal representation, ultimately, having lawyers on your side can work to your benefit in the long run.

Do I need an attorney to file a truck accident claim with the driver’s insurance company?

Whether you need an attorney really depends on the specifics of your case. Depending on the severity of the injury and the damages you are seeking, it may be more economical to file a claim on your own. It’s important to carefully weigh your options. The insurance company will look to shift as much fault or blame to you for the accident as possible. This is a strategy utilized in efforts to reduce the settlement you are entitled to. Truck accident lawyers who are experienced with successfully defending the rights of injured people in Frederick and throughout MD, have a higher likelihood of negotiating a settlement for you that is higher than if you had represented yourself.

How can I obtain a fair settlement for the damages I have suffered?

Your best bet to obtaining a settlement in your favor is with a truck accident attorney by your side. Attempting the process on your own can be difficult. Attorneys are skilled and savvy negotiators. It’s their job to negotiate with insurance companies to obtain a settlement you can agree to.

Following an accident involving a truck, you will want to put your life back together as quickly as possible. An attorney can help you build your case and negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
