Truck accidents are far more complex than auto accidents, and often result in debilitating injuries that impact families on many levels. To recover proper compensation for your losses, contact the capable West Virginia personal injury law firm of DiTrapano Barrett DiPiero McGinley & Simmons, PLLC.
Accidents involving commercial trucks require the help of skilled truck accident attorneys to ensure correct handling of insurance matters and consideration of all possibilities for compensation. Truck accident lawsuits often involve a number of defendants—including the truck driver, truck owner, and maintenance company, among others—each with their own individual insurance policy, investigators, and adjustors.
Immediately following an accident, insurance companies contact those involved to request a statement. The insurance company is hoping to use your words against you to limit liability of the defendant and reduce compensation. It is important to limit what you say, stick to simple facts, and have an attorney review any statements you may give.
Insurance companies may also ask questions about your activities before and after the accident, the medical treatment you received, injuries you sustained, and other damages incurred from the accident. Do not sign any forms authorizing access to your medical history and records, and refer all questions to a skilled personal injury law firm expierenced in dealing with motor vehicle accidents.
The goal of insurance companies is to limit the amount of compensation paid out on claims. To do this, insurance companies employ several tactics. Insurance companies seek to solicit evidence that will place liability on you, the victim. They may also use delay tactics to extend the case until the statute of limitations is reached so they are no longer required to pay.
