If you and your rig have been involved in an accident and your company doesn't cover you under their insurance, you need help. If you think the fault lies with another driver, then you could have real compensation coming. The trick is to avoid settling with any insurance company before you speak with good accident lawyers.
If you have been hit by a truck be aware that trucking accident
insurance law is not as straight forward as automobile insurance law
For the past several years, the lawyers of Peterson Law Offices have dealt with accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, boats, and more. If your accident happened in Oregon or southern Washington, we can work with you to obtain the best settlement possible. The key is to get us on your side before you attempt to work with insurance companies.
Insurance companies are simply businesses. This means that even your own insurance company is looking to pay out as little as possible to you. They will often try to settle with you quickly after your accident. For any undetected, delayed-onset injuries, however, you will not be covered. Insurance companies are well aware that often the worst injuries take time to arrive
or show the full extent of their damage to your life. They know that
if they can settle with you before the extent of those injuries are clear, then they have, essentially, won.
We've seen too many accident victims too late in the game, which is too late for us to help. Contact Peterson Law Offices as soon as you can after a trucking accident to find out which steps you need to take next. You can reach us in Portland at 503-280-0888.
