Injured By A Truck Driver?
An experienced attorney can 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 often true if your 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. That's why we work tirelessly at Chad Jones Law, P.C. We can stand up to insurance companies on your behalf. They don't intimidate us. And our legal team can protect your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Here's what you need to know about insurance companies after a truck wreck
- There can 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 should contact an experienced attorney right away to 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. If you retain us to represent you, we can contact the trucking company and their insurance carrier to let them know you have hired an attorney. From that point forward, they can direct 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 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 often get moving immediately. Trucking companies and their insurance carriers often act fast in the aftermath of a truck wreck. They'll dispatch rapid response teams to the accident scene and start gathering evidence 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 can take immediate legal action to protect your rights and demand evidence to try to build a strong case. We're not afraid to take on insurance companies in negotiations or in court, and we're prepared to fight for you.
