We know that after you’ve been in an accident with a truck, you have many questions and concerns. The costs of medical treatment can be very high, and it may be tempting to meet with the insurance representative from the trucking company. This is especially when they are offering you what seems like a generous check, available to you immediately. The insurance company may ask you to sign a waiver in exchange for a check, or they may try to confuse your memory of exactly what happened in your accident.
It is common for the trucking company’s insurer to try to minimize blame on their client's driver, or even to try to convince you that the accident was your fault. Don't be fooled by their offer or their tactics. Though the insurance company may indicate that their concern is for your wellbeing, remember that it is their job to limit the amount of money that they have to pay you to the lowest amount possible.
They will follow a very specific set of procedures designed to try to relieve their client of liability or to reach a quick settlement that will relieve them and the trucking company of responsibility for any future medical expenses, lost wages or other damages that may arise down the road as a result of your injuries. Do not get caught in this trap.
Injuries from truck accidents can take years to resolve, and some do not become evident until weeks after the accident. Refer the insurance company to your attorney, and if you don’t have one yet tell them that you will have your attorney contact them once you have selected one.
The number of trucking accidents taking place on America’s highways climb every year, and many result in significant injury and even death. There are many reasons why a truck accident may occur, and far too frequently the cause is determined to be trucking company negligence. The most frequently seen instances of negligence on the part of trucking companies include:
In addition to negligence on the part of the driver, who has a duty to exercise proper care while operating his vehicle, trucking companies can also be negligent in the condition of the vehicle that was involved in the accident. If the truck is being operated in a way other than that which the manufacturer intended or was not properly maintained and that played a part in your accident, that is also considered negligence.
