Don’t automatically reject truck accident settlements
Seeking compensation after a semi-truck accident can be a long and drawn out process. There is a way that you might be able to shorten it up some — a settlement. Trucking accident settlements are actually one of the more common ways that these cases are resolved. Before you automatically reject a settlement offer, you must think about a few points.
Settlements Could Mean Less Money in Less Time
One important point is that accepting a big rig accident settlement can get you money faster than if you wait for a trial. That can be a positive thing when you have bills that are piling up because of the accident.
While you might end up getting the case resolved faster with a settlement, that settlement will often be for less money than you would get at trial. That might not be a bad thing because you likely won’t have as many bills to pay when you do get your money. The fees that are associated with your case might not be as high if the case is resolved faster.
