Why So Many Car and Truck Accidents Settle

Why So Many Car and Truck Accidents Settle

If you have been in a car crash or truck accident recently, it may have been a very traumatic experience, whether you were in a mild fender bender or a major crash resulting in serious injuries and property damage. Sadly, traffic incidents just continue to rise throughout the US—and in the Houston area—whether you are a motorist driving a car, truck or motorcycle, or if you are on a bicycle (especially worrisome when children’s safety hangs in the balance) or walking. 

Far too many tragic fatalities still happen on the streets and highways near you every day; however, traffic incidents often result in major injuries that could include serious harm to the neck and spine, traumatic brain injuries, amputations and fractures, and many other issues that can be long-lasting—as well as causing you to lose time at work either temporarily or permanently. These types of cases may be deserving of substantial financial compensation in many cases, and that is exactly what adjusters will be worried about as they begin calling.

If you have been injured, and especially due to the negligence of another party, adjusters may be calling before you can even get home from receiving medical treatment (and going to get treatment is priority!). If there is a valid issue, their goal will be to spend as little time as possible on your case, offer you as little money as possible, and move on. If you have been injured, dealing with the insurer could be extremely stressful, and in some cases, completely overwhelming. Many claimants are made to feel like they will not receive anything except what is a lowball offer, and that they should take it or look forward to nothing. Do not fall for the intimidation tactics!

It is in your best interest to consult with an attorney like of Andrew ‘Pike’ Piekalkiewicz, as soon as possible so he can handle all communications with the insurer and fight for your rights, whether that means going to trial or accepting a fair settlement. Without legal help, it will be very difficult to handle the insurance company and get the financial compensation you are owed.

Attorney Sgt. Pike has developed a system to combat the various forces in the trucking industry attempting to defeat the rights of those wrongfully injured or killed. Based on his training and experience as a Special Forces Operator (Army Green Beret), Attorney Sgt. Pike activates the Truck Accident Response Team or T.A.R.T. ™ immediately after being hired in appropriate cases. T.A.R.T. ™ then deploys to the area of the crash.
