Insurance Companies and Truck Accidents
We build strong cases to help you recover financial compensation
If you were injured in a truck accident caused by the negligence of another, you deserve financial compensation. But recovering that compensation can be challenging. Insurance companies want to pay you as little as possible and have many ways of delaying your claim. Gervelis Law Firm helps injured victims get the compensation they deserve.
Our attorneys are very familiar with the tactics insurance companies use to avoid their responsibility after a truck accident. These cases can be very complicated, but we know how to overcome the obstacles and get results.
Following a truck accident, there may be:
- Multiple insurers – For example, in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, there may be separate insurance companies for the cab and the trailer. Another vehicle may have been involved, with another insurance company. Your own insurance company may be involved as well.
- Challenges collecting evidence – Some of the evidence in truck accidents is under the control of the trucking company. Examples include electronic data modules and electronic logging devices. Holding on to this evidence helps the insurance companies pay you less. We often have to go through legal channels to get this evidence.
- A lot of money at stake – Truck accidents typically cause serious injuries that require very costly medical treatment. Trucking companies typically carry polices with high limits, so even a minor accident can mean a big payment for the insurance company. That’s why insurance companies try to reduce their responsibility or delay paying the claim.
