Your Truck Accident Lawyers questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does a truck accident lawyer cost?

Most truck accident lawyers work on contingency, which means they are paid a portion of your settlement only if you win the case. Most contingency fees for truck accidents are 25% to 40% of the amount awarded. You may be able to negotiate a lower fee percentage if you have a strong case or severe injuries.

Any money you win in a truck accident case compensates for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral expenses if applicable
  • Pain and suffering
  • Vehicle damage

How can a truck accident lawyer help?

A truck accident lawyer can help you by filing court documents, representing you in court, and negotiating compensation. Most people don't know that they don't have to accept the first settlement amount the truck company offers. Truck accident attorneys have the experience necessary to advocate for you and get the highest compensation possible.

Do different laws apply to truck accidents?

Yes, different laws apply to large truck accidents. Truck drivers follow the same federal and state laws as other motorists as well as specific laws that govern commercial trucking companies. Truck accident attorneys are familiar with these laws, which are made by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Most accidents happen because the driver or company cut corners to maximize profits.

How long does a truck accident case take?

Most truck accident cases take 3 to 6 months to resolve, as long as there are no major interruptions or complications. Complex cases may take 1 to 3 years to resolve and involve:

  • Liability investigations
  • Medical treatment
  • Disputes with insurance companies
  • Settlement negotiations

Who pays for the settlement in a truck accident case?

The negligent party in an accident is responsible for damages. If the driver is responsible for the crash, you may receive payment from one or more of the following parties:

  • The driver's insurance company
  • The trucking company that employed the driver
  • The truck manufacturer
  • The company that loaded the truck
