How Does a Truck Accident Lawsuit Work?

Truck accident lawsuits are similar to auto accidents but often involve a few extra steps. The injured party should report the crash directly after the accident and collect as much evidence as possible. This can include photos, videos, written statements, witness contact information, and more. 

The injured party should then call a truck accident lawyer and explain the details of their accident. Depending on the situation, the attorney will advise the injured party on whether they should move forward with pursuing damages or not. The work will begin if the injured party decides to move forward and hire a lawyer.

A truck accident attorney will investigate the collected information, witnesses, and scene of the crash to find evidence proving the other involved party was at fault. 

Determining fault in a truck accident lawsuit can be difficult because many different parties are involved. When dealing with commercial vehicles—like in a Walmart truck accident—a lawyer must consider the driver, the company that loaded the truck, the company that hired the driver, the truck component manufacturers, and more. In some cases, more than one party will be held responsible for the injuries sustained after a crash. 

Sometimes, the lawyer for the injured party (plaintiff) will communicate directly with the alleged at-fault party’s insurance company before even filing suit and trying to reach an agreement or settlement. Determining the value of a settlement is the primary responsibility of your attorney. 

If the lawyer and insurance representative cannot reach an agreement, the case may proceed through litigation. While the majority of cases do get settled prior to trial, your WKW team works every trucking case up like it will go to trial and is not afraid to try your case if needed.

Determining the Average Settlement for Commercial Vehicle Accident Claims

There is no perfect method for calculating the average semi-truck settlement in Indiana. Each settlement is so dependent on the unique details of the case that estimating any benefit amount is difficult. Lawyers may have a better idea of how much your truck accident is worth after a case evaluation, but they will usually need to speak to several experts and the insurance company for the trucking company first before attempting to provide that sort of evaluation. 

The payout for a truck accident settlement may depend on the following factors:

  • Injuries sustained by the defendant
  • Cost and duration of required medical treatment
  • Emotional and physical pain and suffering
  • Income lost as a result of the defendant’s injuries
  • Insurance policies of both parties
  • Percentage of fault held by both parties
  • Level of negligence that led to the injury
  • Other expenses and costs accrued as a consequence of the accident

The goal of a truck crash settlement is to provide the necessary resources for an injured party to rebuild their life after an accident. WKW wants to be a part of that process.
