Q: Can I settle my Atlanta truck accident case with an insurance company now, and then recover additional damages later if my injuries persist?
A:Probably not. Once you sign a binding truck accident settlement agreement with an insurance company, the terms of that settlement agreement typically prevent you from seeking additional damages in the future.
That limitation makes it imperative that you work closely with Atlanta car accident lawyers prior to agreeing to a truck accident settlement. Experienced Atlanta truck accident attorneys understand the limitations on future recoveries and know how to account for future damages. We will, for example, work closely with your doctors to determine the likelihood of your future ability to work and the reasonably estimated amount of your future pain.
If you have been hurt in a truck wreck, our Atlanta truck crash lawyers understand your desire to settle your case quickly. However, we also want you to enter the right settlement agreement with full regard for the future impact of your truck wreck injuries.
