Most victims assume that the quicker they settle their truck accident lawsuit, the quicker they are able to recover the money they need for the unexpected expenses they are now obligated to pay as a result of the wreck. While this is true, it doesn’t mean you are going to receive the amount you are actually entitled to. Did you know that when you rush to reach a settlement, you could be closing yourself off from receiving thousands or even millions of dollars? Not only could this money pay for your future medical care, but it could also cover the cost of everyday expenses if you are no longer able to work, provide for your family, and even help you live an easier life given you sustained permanent injuries that impact your physical and/or cognitive abilities.
Although it is known that truck accident cases tend to take longer than most types of cases, a majority of the time there is a reasonable explanation for why. You can read about a truck accident case that recently settled although the incident occurred back in 2014.
You see, truck accident cases are among some of the most complex types of personal injury cases that exist. There are usually several parties that are involved and these incidents often result in some of the worst damage and debilitating injuries. That means the evidence along with any other pertinent information will take time to sort through.
Aside from that, you have to consider the degree of your injuries and what your physician’s prognosis is. Sometimes, doctors foresee certain types of injuries healing within a certain timeframe only to learn later on that the damage was so extensive that they won’t and that your injury will, in fact, impact you for the rest of your life. Now, because it can time for this to be determined, a victim shouldn’t rush into accepting a settlement offer that compensates them for their current condition. Instead, they should take the necessary time to heal and when their doctor is able to give them a more realistic prognosis, that is when an amount should be agreed upon.
Now, there are times when truck accident cases will carry on for longer periods than necessary, but that is why you should retain a Chicago, IL truck accident lawyer who can be there and step in when necessary to help speeds things up.
