Rob Rosenthal: 

If you're injured in a crash with an 18-wheeler or a commercial vehicle, should you accept an offer from the insurance company instead of hiring an attorney? Let's ask a Denver lawyer Samantha Pryor for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Samantha Pryor: 

No, you should not accept the first offer that an insurance company makes, because the insurance company is going to want to settle the case for as little as possible, and they oftentimes try to do that early on in the case, because they don't know and understand the full extent and severity of the injuries involved, and so it's really important to try to get an attorney to help with your case and your claim if you are hit by a semi-truck because there are special rules and laws that apply.
