Accidents that involve commercial trucks of drivers attract additional compensation above what is offered by the truck’s cover. This is why having the right information is important especially when it comes to accidents. Chicago Personal Injury Attorneys are now offering professional broker and shipper liability services to help people looking for such legal help through the process of court cases or settlement.
According to the personal injury attorneys in Chicago site, “If you are in an accident that involves a commercial truck or driver, you may be entitled to additional compensation above and beyond that truck’s insurance coverage. Broker and shipper liability is a highly specialized and often missed area of trucking liability cases. If this financial area of recovery is missed, or not pursued for a seriously injured or dead client, the results can be financially devastating for that person and their family.”
The website further explains that, “Most motor carriers (truck driver) only carry the required minimum of $1M in insurance coverage for the interstate transport of goods. When one of these carriers or their drivers negligently injure or kill someone, they offer up their $1M policy and walk away essentially judgment proof. However, if the broker or shipper involved in the load are found liable, there can be additional insurance coverage that can greatly increase the $1M ceiling from the carrier’s insurance policy.
Failure to pursue these additional valuable claims results in hundreds of millions of dollars in protentional settlements and judgments never being collected for very deserving clients and families. Unfortunately, many attorneys and law firms never pursue these claims or even know to look for them.”
