Truck Accident Lawsuit FAQ

You may feel overwhelmed if you have been injured or a loved one was killed in a truck-related accident. Every case is different. During more than two decades in practice, our legal team has been asked countless questions about truck accidents, filing a lawsuit, and obtaining financial recovery. Below are answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions.

How are truck accident lawsuits different from other accident lawsuits?

Due to the massive size and weight of tractor trailers, truck crashes often result in more injuries for other motorists involved as well as their vehicles – sometimes without causing visible damage to the truck.

Further, the defendants in a truck accident lawsuit may extend beyond just the driver. Injured victims may also be able to seek compensation from the trucking company and other parties who acted negligently and contributed to the cause of the crash.

The police blamed me for the crash, but I know I wasn’t at fault. Can I still sue?

Even if the police initially blamed you for the truck accident, you could still win your case. In fact, in one small Pennsylvania town alone, Jon Ostroff recovered millions of dollars for two different clients, even though the police blamed each of them for their accidents.

Other lawyers may have also told you that you don’t have a case. It’s important to contact our truck accident lawyers anyway, because we have recovered millions of dollars for clients who were told by other lawyers that they didn’t have a case.

What if I have limited tort insurance? Does it prevent me from bringing a case?

If you have limited tort insurance and were told that you cannot seek recovery for your injuries related to the truck accident, call the team at Ostroff Injury Law anyway. We know a list of legal exceptions that could mean the stipulations of limited tort do not apply to you, even if you chose it for your insurance policy.

What is accident reconstruction and how does it help my case?

Truck accident experts use scientific principles to investigate details of the crash including the moment of impact, the speed of the vehicles involved, weather and road conditions, and more. The complexity of truck accidents leads many attorneys to seek the help of investigators to help get answers and build a strong case.

How long will my lawsuit last until I receive compensation?

Every case is different, and there are countless factors that change the timeline between filing suit and obtaining compensation. Ostroff Injury Law aggressively represents each client to ensure the process is as efficient and successful as possible. We work hard to obtain a substantial settlement for clients, but we are also prepared to go to court if the defendants won’t pay what we feel is fair.
