Injured By A Truck Driver?
An experienced attorney will handle the insurance paperwork and adjusters
After any sort of crash, you'll quickly learn that the insurance companies aren't on your side. That's especially true when the wreck involves a commercial truck. Truck accidents are high-stakes cases for insurance companies because the injuries sustained are often severe and the policy limits are very high. And they have plenty of opportunities to cut their own liability - at your expense.
That's not justice, and that's not what you'll get when you work with Chad Jones Law, P.C. We've been standing up to the insurance companies for many years, and they don't intimidate us. Our legal team will protect your rights and fight for all of the compensation you need.
Here's what you need to know about insurance companies after a truck wreck
- There will be multiple insurance companies involved. You'll be dealing with your own insurance, of course. If the wreck involved a tractor-trailer, the cab and the trailer have separate insurance policies. Remember that accepting an offer from one insurance company may affect others' liability as well. That's why you absolutely need to contact an experienced attorney and review any offer before you take money from the insurance company.
- You don't have to speak with them directly. As with any crash, you need to notify your insurance company promptly so that they can begin processing your claim, but you certainly don't have to speak with the trucking company's insurance. Once you've retained us to represent you, we will contact the trucking company and their insurance carrier to let them know that you have hired an attorney. From that point forward, they can direct all further inquiries to our office so that we can protect your rights and interests.
- You don't have to give a recorded statement. Remember, anything you say to the insurance company can be used against you. A recording can always be edited, cut or taken out of context. If you need to give a statement to the trucking company or their insurance company, we strongly recommend that you come to our office and sit down with one of our attorneys to prepare a written statement. That way, you can take your time and make sure your statement accurately reflects your side of the story.
- They will get moving immediately. Trucking companies and their insurance carriers act fast in the aftermath of a truck wreck. They'll dispatch rapid response teams to the accident scene and start gathering the evidence they need to build their case against you. The sooner you have us on your side, the better your outcome is likely to be. That's because we can take legal action to counter the steps taken by the insurance company.
When you're dealing with claims adjusters and insurance red tape after a truck wreck, you deserve a level playing field. That's where we come in. We'll take immediate legal action to protect your rights and get the evidence needed to build a strong case. We're not afraid to take on the insurance companies in negotiations and in court, and we know how to win.
