The legal process involved in a personal injury claim varies depending on the circumstances of the automobile accident that the claim in being filed in relation to. Most car accident claims are able to be completed relatively quickly, but claims that follow in the wake of a truck accident tend to take much longer. This is because there are more factors surrounding the claim and legal considerations that may bog down the process.
Firstly, truck accidents tend to be more severe that car accidents and the injuries are correspondingly worse as well. Lawsuits that involve more severe injuries tend to take longer as well due to the fact that more compensation is being sought after to cover greater medical expenses. Of course, this isn’t true to all truck accidents, but it does cover enough to be worth noting.
More likely however, truck accidents involve not only individual drivers, but the trucking company. Dealing with corporations is much different than dealing with people because they tend to more carefully look into the claim and have the resources to do so. There is also the insurance company of the trucking company to contend with as well and all of the lawyers of both.
To counter the other side, it is highly recommend that you hire your own lawyer, one that has the skill and experience to see your case through and have it end in victory.
