Trucking Company Liability Insurance Covers Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims

When we sue a trucking company on behalf of a client (personal injury or wrongful death), we negotiate with the trucking company’s legal team and its insurer.  The trucking company’s insurance provider is involved because it is the insurance company that ultimately pays the settlement or verdict.  In some cases, more than one insurance company  is involved because more than one company is liable (legally responsible).

Commercial trucks governed by the U.S. Department of Transportation must carry liability insurance for accidents that result in bodily injury or wrongful death. States require minimum liability coverage for commercial vehicles not regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

If you have a claim, you can sue to get money from the trucking companies insurance provider. You can click here now to contact our attorneys about your case. It is free to talk to them, and they have decades of experience winning multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts.

What to Do When You are Contacted by an Insurance Company Representative

You will be contacted by at least one commercial truck insurance adjuster.  DO NOT TALK TO THEM. Their job is to get information from you that will result in less compensation for you. If you are contacted, tell them you are hiring (or have hired) an attorney and give them our phone number, 612-338-0202.

Most people do not realize that even a friendly conversation with an insurance representative can be used against them.  For example, most insurance representatives will express concern and ask how you are and/or how your child is, if the child was involved in the accident.  Do not answer them. Remember that insurance representatives are trained to get information from you that the insurance company can use in its favor.

Report Your Accident to Your Insurance Company ASAP

Your insurance company is also involved.  You need to report the accident to your insurance company.  When you do, do not tell them how you feel or provide any information other then what is in the accident report.  If your insurance company asks you a question that makes you uncomfortable, tell them to contact the lawyer at our firm who is representing you.  Do not sign anything without contacting our truck accident lawyers first.
