Dealing With Trucking Insurance Companies

Contact the Atlanta attorneys dedicated to trucking litigation

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, navigating the claims process can be frustrating. Dealing with insurance companies is a crucial aspect of seeking the compensation you deserve. But insurance companies are profit-driven entities and may use many different tactics to minimize the compensation they pay out.

The experienced truck accident attorneys at Fried Goldberg LLC are very familiar with these tactics and know how to fight back. We understand the impact that a serious injury can have on victims and their families. That’s why we are determined to help you recover the maximum compensation possible.

Our attorneys have extensive experience with insurance companies

Here are some of the tactics insurance companies may use in an attempt to get you to settle for less:

  • Quick settlement offers – Insurance companies often make quick settlement offers soon after an accident, hoping to resolve the claim swiftly and for a minimal amount. These offers are typically far less than what you may be entitled to. We advise against accepting such offers without proper evaluation. We will carefully assess your case, considering medical expenses, lost wages, future treatment, and other factors, to determine the true value of your claim.
  • Disputing liability – Insurance companies may attempt to shift blame or argue shared fault to reduce their liability. They might question your actions, driving skills, or attempt to prove that you were partially responsible for the accident. Our legal team will gather evidence, consult experts, and build a strong case to establish the other party’s negligence and hold them accountable for their actions.
  • Delaying tactics – Insurance companies may intentionally prolong the claims process, causing frustration and financial strain. They hope that the mounting pressure will force you to settle for a lower amount. Our experienced attorneys understand the importance of prompt action. We will diligently handle paperwork, negotiate on your behalf, and keep moving your case forward until we get results.
  • Underestimating damages – Insurance adjusters may downplay the extent of your injuries or undervalue the damages you have suffered. They may argue that your injuries are pre-existing or unrelated to the accident. Our team works closely with medical professionals to thoroughly evaluate your injuries, consider long-term effects, and calculate the full extent of your damages. We will fight for your right to fair compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earning capacity, and more.
  • Surveillance and social media monitoring – Insurance companies may hire investigators to conduct surveillance or monitor your social media activity. They search for any evidence that contradicts your injury claims or suggests you are less injured than you claim. It’s crucial to be cautious about what you post online and to seek legal guidance to protect your rights. We will help you understand how to handle social media and navigate the tactics used by insurance companies.

We think you deserve better

Dealing with insurance companies after a truck accident requires knowledge, experience, and a strong legal advocate on your side. At Fried Goldberg, we are well-versed in the tactics employed by insurance companies to minimize compensation. Our goal is to protect your rights, advocate for your best interests, and secure the maximum compensation you deserve.

We start with the facts. Our legal team investigates your accident to find out what really happened. This involves reviewing accident reports and medical records, taking action to preserve evidence controlled by the trucking company, and interviewing witnesses. We may also consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.

Our investigation helps us to identify the negligent parties. These may include the truck driver, the trucking company, the company that loaded the cargo, the cargo owners, or the manufacturer of defective parts.

Our attorneys determine the total amount of damages you have suffered and demand the compensation you deserve. This may include compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries – such as surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, and follow-up appointment. You may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages and other damages such as pain and suffering.
