Taking on the Insurance Company
Not long after a Riverside commercial truck accident, you will be faced
with pursuing a claim for compensation from an insurance company. You
need to keep in mind that you do not need to go it along when it comes
to your claim with an insurance company.
You need to bear in mind that an insurance company exists for one primary
reason. An insurance company is in business to make money for its shareholders.
An insurance company can increase its profits each year by limiting the
amount of money paid out in claims, including claims for semi-truck accident.
You best protect your legal interests during the claims settlement process
by being proactive in retaining the professional services of tenacious
Riverside semi-truck accident lawyer. The Doan Law Firm understands the
tactics employed by insurance companies to dodge even legitimate claims
The Elements of a Negligence Claim in a Commercial Truck Accident Case
In order to prevail in your Riverside semi-truck accident claim, you must
demonstrate the existence of four elements. First, there must be a duty
of care. In the case of a semi-truck, a big rig must be operated in a
reasonable safe manner.
Second, the duty of care must be reached. For example, a breach of a duty
of care would occur if a driver texted while operating a big rig. Third,
the breach of duty must be the proximate cause of the accident and injuries.
That means it must be the actual and legal cause. Finally, real injuries,
damages, and losses must be sustained.
