Holding the At-Fault Party Responsible for Paying for Surgery

In Virginia, the at-fault party's insurance company is typically responsible for covering the expenses resulting from the accident. For example, if the truck driver is found liable for the accident, their fleet company insurance policy usually covers the damages. 

An experienced truck accident lawyer can determine what party or parties to hold responsible and fight to ensure you’re fairly compensated for the damages you suffered. Your legal team also does the following to help with your truck accident claim:

Gather evidence

To establish the at-fault party's liability, obtaining clear evidence to support your claim is essential. This may include photographs, videos, witness statements, police reports, driver logs, employee records, and any other relevant documentation.

Negotiate with the insurance company

Your attorney initiates negotiations with the trucking company’s insurer. They present your evidence and argue for rightful compensation that covers your surgery expenses and other damages such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Provide court representation

If a settlement cannot be reached with the trucking company’s insurer, a skilled truck accident lawyer will take your case to court. They’ll advocate for your rights, present evidence supporting your claim, and seek a fair settlement that holds the responsible party accountable for their actions and covers your surgery and other expenses.
