How West Palm Beach, FL Truck Accident Claims Work 

When you’ve been in a truck accident, it is often more severe than a typical car accident, and the claims process looks a lot different. Since these accidents involve commercial vehicles, there are more parties that can be held responsible for your damages, including the truck driver, the trucking company, and the trucking company’s insurance provider. In rare cases, more parties can be held liable, such as the truck manufacturer.

When the trucking party is responsible for the damages, you’ll likely be contacted by the company’s insurance adjuster, who may offer you a low settlement to keep his client’s expenses down. Any commercial truck accident lawyer in West Palm Beach will tell you that you don’t have to take a less-than-acceptable settlement offer. 

With the help of a leading West Palm Beach truck accident lawyer at Lytal, Reiter, Smith, lvey & Fronrath, you can negotiate the settlement outside of court to meet your actual expenses and suffering in full. If settlements outside of court don’t meet your needs, we can pursue a legal claim to recover the maximum compensation possible.
