When a driver of a car causes an accident, the passengers of that car can make a claim to try to get a car accident settlement against the bodily injury coverage of the driver’s auto insurance.

Tractor-Trailer (18 wheeler) Accident Settlements
I've had over $740,000 in settlements - before attorney's fees, costs and medical bills - for people who are injured by a tractor-trailer (18 wheeler) while in Florida. I also settled a claim for $200,000 for a Florida truck driver who was rear ended by another 18 wheeler in Georgia.
Some of my settlements in 18 wheeler cases are: $445,000, $210,000, $100,000, $19,000. I - along with another law firm - have had workers compensation settlements for injured truck drivers.
While it can be difficult for the average person (or attorney) to know how much a tractor-trailer accident case may be worth, I look at past cases (both my own and other attorneys) to help determine the value.
Which is why I write about tractor-trailer (18 wheeler) accident settlements from time to time.
