All motor vehicle accidents are life-changing experiences, but this is especially true for truck accidents. Because trucks weigh significantly more than regular cars—sometimes 25-50 times more—the injuries and consequences of the accident are usually more severe and oftentimes fatal.
Unfortunately, there are countless trucks on the road that are accidents waiting to happen. Overworked truck drivers, improper tires and equipment, and overweight cargo are just some of the many reasons why trucks cause accidents that change lives forever.
Once a truck accident occurs, a long and complicated process begins of filing an insurance claim, determining who is responsible, and getting a resolution so the person injured can move on with his or her life. The process can be very intimidating.
At Slater | Grant, our attorneys have worked on the other side, defending trucking companies. We know how they and their insurance companies defend cases. Insurance companies for trucking companies try to pay you as little as possible. They tempt you with an early settlement check that is less than the claim is truly worth and leave you without enough money to cover your future medical bills, job losses, pain and suffering, and other problems.

How The Process Works At Slater | Grant
At the beginning, we gather information from you about the accident and your injuries. We then gather documents and records from medical providers, insurance companies, the police, and others.
Investigate and Analyze
We then investigate and analyze your claim deeper, reviewing new medical information as you get treatment and procedures, interviewing witnesses, potentially hiring investigators and reviewing surveillance, and taking other steps to help us evaluate the value of your claim.
Our attorneys then talk to you about the value of your claim and prepare a written demand to the at-fault person or company and their insurance company, requesting that they pay you money. If appropriate, we will negotiate with them and attempt to settle your claim for an amount that fairly compensates you so you can recover and move on with life.
Go to Court
If the defense is unwilling to pay what you deserve, we will file a lawsuit and take your case to trial. Along the way, we talk with the defense lawyers about settlement to see if their clients are willing to pay you to fairly compensate you for your injuries.
