Truck wrecks are serious, especially here in the Rio Grande Valley. If you are in a car and involved in a truck wreck, you are going to know all about it. They are big, heavy beasts. A fully loaded 18-wheeler can weigh as much as 40 tons, whereas your car is probably only about 1.5 tons. Who do you think is going to come off worst if one of those hits you?
It is bad enough if you are in a car wreck, but at least the two only weigh about the same. Truck wrecks often result in serious injuries for the driver and passengers in a car, and of course if it is the fault of the truck driver, you will need to claim compensation for your injuries. Such injuries can literally be life changing.
One minute you might be a golfer, soccer player, swimmer, tennis player, or other sports enthusiast. In a matter of a couple of seconds you could find yourself in a wheelchair for life. So, it follows that the amount of compensation that the law says you are entitled to could easily run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.
However, actually getting that compensation is another matter entirely. Truck insurance companies do not like paying out hundreds of thousands of dollars. In fact, truth be told, they don’t like paying out – period! We have said this before, but it is logical when you think about it. Quite simply, the less an insurance company pays out, the more profit it makes. End of. And they are in business for profit.
You’re Involved In a Fight
So, the simple fact is that if you are involved in a truck wreck that wasn’t your fault, you are now involved in something else. And that something else is a fight, because the insurance company isn’t going to roll over on its’ back like a cat so that you can tickle its’ proverbial tummy. No. It will fight you tooth and nail.
The bad news is that if you try to fight it on your own, the big cat will win. An insurance company will happily spend $50,000 on a lawyer if that lawyer can save them $350,000! Think about it.
But most people who have been in truck wrecks don’t have $50,000 tucked in their sock, so cannot afford a lawyer.
However, there is some good news. At Villarreal Law Firm we don’t charge you a cent!
That’s right. If you have been in a truck wreck and need to fight the insurance company, we will take on your case for nothing. You only ever pay us when we have actually won your case for you. We simply agree a percentage of the compensation that we get for you.
That also gives us a great incentive to win your case for you because the more we get for you, the more we earn too. Everyone is happy.
Except, perhaps, the truck’s insurance company.
