How do I deal with Insurance Companies after an 18 Wheeler Accident Injury?

Dealing with insurance companies after an 18 wheeler accident can be a complicated and stressful process, but it's important to remember that insurance companies are not on your side. They are in the business of making money, and they will do everything they can to pay out as little as possible. Here are some tips on how to deal with insurance companies after an 18 wheeler accident:

  • Contact your own insurance company: Even if the accident was not your fault, it's important to notify your own insurance company as soon as possible. Your insurance company can help you navigate the claims process and may be able to provide you with coverage for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
  • Don't give a recorded statement: Insurance adjusters may try to get you to give a recorded statement about the accident. While it's important to provide accurate information, it's also important to be careful about what you say. Anything you say in a recorded statement can be used against you later on, so it's best to avoid giving one unless you have consulted with an attorney.
  • Don't sign anything: Insurance adjusters may also try to get you to sign a settlement agreement or other documents. Before you sign anything, make sure you understand what you're agreeing to and what your rights are. It's always a good idea to have an attorney review any documents before you sign them.
  • Keep records: Keep track of all of your expenses related to the accident, including medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. This information can be helpful in negotiating a settlement with the insurance company.
  • Get an attorney: Dealing with insurance companies can be complicated, and it's often in your best interest to hire an experienced personal injury attorney. An attorney can help you navigate the claims process, negotiate with the insurance company, and make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Remember, insurance companies are not on your side. They may try to deny your claim or offer you a low settlement amount. By following these tips and working with an experienced attorney, you can protect your rights and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve after an 18 wheeler accident.
