18 Wheeler Accident Involve Serious Injuries

The injuries you can suffer from an 18 Wheeler Accident can be severe.  Unfortunately, in my experience, many injured people do not know the extent of their injuries until weeks and possible months have passed.

18 Wheeler  and other commercial vehicles generally have commercial policies that provide at least $1,000,000.00 worth of coverage. With one million dollars worth of risk, the insurance company has a lot of motivation to settle your case before you know the extent of your injuries.

I tell my clients to immediately seek medical treatment and to NOT give a statement to the adjuster. The statement will be used by the insurance company or their lawyer to try to hurt your case.

If you were injured in an 18 Wheeler Accident, call Simon O’Rourke now so that we can start fighting for you. 281-667-4081.
