Truck Accident Case Value | Factors
In order to know how much your case is going to be worth, we have to determine just how injured you are and how long you are going to be affected by this. We encourage patience in this process. If you are taking a very long time to heal, it is better to know the full extent of your injuries and get complete compensation rather than a low settlement for speeding up the process.
Truck Accident Case Value | What if I Am Partially to Blame for the Crash?
The first thing that everyone should know about truck crash cases in California is that you will be able to receive compensation even if you are found partially at fault for the crash. You cannot, however, be deemed completely and entirely the cause of the crash and still receive compensation. But if you are 20% at fault, you will. The only catch is that you will have your award reduced by that amount. Let’s say you are awarded $100,000 for your injuries, and you are 20% at fault. You would be allowed to collect $80,000 from the award. Therefore, when insurance companies want to know about the crash and your injuries, it is best not to talk to them to avoid getting pegged as the at fault party. Once we understand that, and determine fault, we can go after the compensation.
