I think I made a mistake after my recent truck accident. I didn’t do what my doctor suggested, and I may have made my injury even worse. Is that the end of my case, or should I still contact a Virginia truck accident lawyer?


Everyone makes mistakes. Some of those mistakes may have an impact on your eventual truck accident settlement, but they do not change what happened. They do not take away the responsibility of the trucker, trucking company, and/or insurance company to help you recover from the accident injuries that you suffered because of someone else’s negligent or deliberate acts.

Accordingly, you should not assume that you have ruined your entire case because you think you may have made a mistake. Instead, you should contact an experienced Virginia truck accident attorney and explain what happened. You should be truthful with your attorney and let your lawyer know your concerns. In turn, your lawyer will be truthful with you and advise you about your rights and possible recovery.

A mistake should not bar your entire recovery. However, you and your Charlottesville truck accident lawyer may need to make that argument to the insurance adjuster in order to get the recovery that you deserve.

For more information, and to speak with an experienced Charlottesville truck accident attorney about your case and possible recovery, please call 434-985-6000 today for a free consultation. We will work hard to get you the fair and just recovery that you deserve after your truck accident injuries.
