How the Truck Accident Insurance Claim Settlement Process Works
The insurance claims settlement process following a semi-truck accident can be highly complicated. In nearly any accident involving a semi there are likely multiple parties that are somehow at fault for the accident and any injuries sustained.
Potentially responsible parties include:
- Trucking company
- Rig operator
- Another car driver
- Truck manufacturer
Because multiple parties may be involved in the liability mix, you may need to pursue claims with multiple insurance companies. Dealing with one insurance company is a challenge. If you are left dealing with more than one insurer, the process can overwhelm.
You also must understand the underlying mission of a car insurance company. An automobile insurance company is in business for one primary reason. It exists to make money for its shareholders. An insurer will do whatever it can to maximize profits for its stockholders. One strategy an insurance company employs is limiting the amount of money paid out in claim settlements. The less money paid on insurance claims, the more profit available to shareholders.
Research reveals that injured people who retain lawyers in the direct aftermath of an accident ultimately receive better settlements than do individuals who try to maneuver through the claims process on their own. Therefore, you need to take a proactive stance in retaining a Lubbock truck accident lawyer to better ensure you obtain the settlement to which you are entitled.
With that in mind, an insurance company is apt to try and contact you immediately following an accident. A representative of an insurer will try to pressure you to answer questions about the accident or your injuries. The insurer’s objective is to try and coerce you into making statements that may prove to be against your interests. Understanding that insurance companies engage in this type of conduct, you should not agree to answer their questions until you retain an attorney. You can politely advise a claims settlement agent or other insurance company representative that you are in the process of hiring a lawyer and your attorney will be in touch with the insurance company shortly.
