Your truck accident lawyer will handle your insurance company for you in a number of ways. In fact, dealing with insurance companies is one of the biggest tasks for truck accident lawyers when helping clients with their cases.
The attorneys at our law firm understand the way insurance companies handle truck accident claims. We use this knowledge to build cases that are difficult for insurers to refute and encourage them to agree to a settlement that addresses our client’s damages.
Four Ways Your Truck Accident Lawyer Can Deal with the Insurance Company
We understand how to handle interactions with insurance companies in ways that help your claim run smoothly and avoid hurting your chances of securing a settlement. When we represent clients in an insurance claim, our services include:
If you file a personal injury claim after a truck accident with help from our team, we will be your legal mouthpiece for the entire claim. This includes:
- Talking to the insurance representatives during calls
- Reading and/or responding to their emails
- Handling negotiations
Everything you say to an insurance company in the days following the truck accident is crucial. Our team will make sure you do not say anything that could hurt your claim.
2. Presenting Evidence to Support Your Claim
Even when filing a no-fault claim with your insurance, you will still need to present evidence of the damages you suffered. This allows you to request compensation to address the expenses and losses you have experienced.
Our team will not only present proof of your damages to your insurance company, but we will also collect this evidence for you and estimate the value of your claim.
3. Settlement Negotiations
As negotiations begin, a lawyer from our team will go head-to-head with the insurance adjuster to negotiate a fair settlement. This part of the process may involve multiple back-and-forth exchanges. We will stand our ground, fighting for a settlement amount that is worthy of the damages you have suffered.
4. Preparing Your Case to Court
If the settlement offer does not fairly address your damages, our team will prepare to take your case to court. You may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver who caused your injuries if those injuries—and/or your financial damages—meet the necessary threshold under NY Insurance (ISC) §5102.
Benefits of Allowing a Truck Accident Lawyer to Handle the Insurance Company
Truck accidents can leave victims with devastating injuries that make it hard to deal with insurance companies, which is why a lawyer from our firm is willing to handle this task for you.
In addition to easing the burden for you, letting a truck accident lawyer handle your insurance company can provide several advantages, including:
Avoiding the Hassle
Working with your insurance company, especially after a severe collision, can mean countless calls, emails, requests for documentation, and more. You will need to present proof of your damages, which can take time to collect, not to mention the time you may need to spend negotiating a settlement.
This can be taxing if you are still trying to heal from your injuries. If you have been able to return to work, it may be difficult to dedicate time and resources to your case. Allowing a lawyer from our team to take on these interactions can remove the pressure associated with them.
Staying Up to Date at All Times
You have three years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit, according to the statute of limitations under NY Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214. If your claim gets rejected or delayed, this deadline can pass very quickly, especially if you are in recovery or returning to work.
When we take on your case, we will keep an eye on this timeline while dealing with the insurance company to maintain your right to file a lawsuit, if necessary. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on the progress of your case at all times.
Our team will offer you the comfort of knowing that you are in good legal hands and that no efforts have been spared to secure compensation from the insurance company or the liable party.
