An Attorney Explains What You Need To Know

Dealing with insurance companies after a truck accident can be very complicated. Even when a truck driver clearly caused your crash, that doesn't mean you will automatically be compensated by their insurance company for your accident.

Issues Involving Insurance Companies and Truck Accidents

The main reason why dealing with insurance companies after a truck accident can be so complicated is because of the large number of companies that may be involved. Depending on the circumstances of your crash, the negligent parties may include the:

  • Truck driver
  • Trucking company
  • Owner of the truck trailer (if different)
  • Company that loaded the truck
  • Company that packaged materials in the truck
  • Truck manufacturer
  • Truck parts manufacturer
  • Company whose cargo was being transported at the time of accident

And the insurance company for each party will have at least one attorney working on your case - if not an entire team. Add all the lawyers and insurance company representatives together and you could find yourself dealing with dozens of people in order to obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your accident. That's why it's so critical to contact an experienced attorney right away.
