What should I do if I've
been run off the road?
When a semi-truck runs a passenger vehicle off the road, it can cause serious injuries and financial damages to the passenger vehicle occupant. If you were a victim of this, you could understandably be feeling very shaken up. The first thing you should do is get in touch with a truck accident lawyer in Southern Illinois to protect your rights. What you do now is critical.
The trucking companies can afford aggressive insurance that tries every tactic to pay you as little as possible. These include getting a statement right after the accident to try to place blame on you, making you an offer that is less than the settlement you could claim with a lawyer, and giving you a deadline for accepting their offer in an attempt to lowball you.
The best way to ensure that you aren’t taken advantage of is to hire an attorney. An experienced attorney can protect your rights, defend your claim, and negotiate for the maximum amount of compensation for your case.
