If you become seriously injured in a tractor trailer truck accident,or any kind of auto accident, the at-fault party's insurance company will contact you about your claim.
Before speaking with them, know that the trucking company and their insurance adjusters are experienced and will want to limit damages early on if possible.
The adjusters represent the truck company, and owe you no loyalty. They do not look out for your interests. Do not give them statements or sign any releases for medical records or employment records.
In serious auto accidents, trucking companies and their insurance companies will start investigating the accident immediately. We recommend retaining a truck accident attorney immediately after the wreck so that he or she can participate in this investigation or conduct an independent investigation if necessary.
Accident Attorney Dirk Derrick of Derrick Law Firm Injury Lawyers has over 31 years of experience in personal injury law including auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls, workers' compensation, wrongful death, and insurance claims.
