How Can You Best Prepare For Filing A Truck Accident Claim?

When filing a truck accident claim, you may be unsure of what to do next. Here are some simple steps to follow after a truck accident and ways to prepare your truck accident claim.  

Gather Information/Evidence

If you are able to, collect as much information and evidence as possible at the time of the collision. Here are some important things to document:

Contact a Truck Accident Lawyer

While you may feel jarred and confused after being involved in a truck accident, it’s crucial to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a collision. An experienced truck accident lawyer will be able to walk you through filing a truck accident claim and build you a strong case. They can also help you with collecting additional evidence, dealing with insurance companies, and filing paperwork.

 

While your first instinct may be to reach out to your insurance company, a lawyer should be your first call. Your insurance company may ask you to make sworn statements where you may unintentionally admit fault. A truck accident lawyer will know what kinds of questions will be asked, and how you can answer them without accepting blame.

Negotiate A Settlement

Once your lawyer has collected the information and evidence you need, they will send a notice of representation to the responsible party and their insurance. This means that your lawyer will become the point of contact between you and the other party’s insurance adjuster. 

 

After they receive this notice, the other party’s insurance company will either offer a settlement or deny your claim. It’s important to remember that these companies are for-profit businesses that are interested in cutting costs, not giving fair compensation. Before formally accepting any settlement, talk to your truck accident lawyer. They can advise you on whether the settlement can be negotiated.
