Many times injured victims are surprised at how quickly representatives, investigators, or insurance adjusters for the trucking company arrive at the scene after an 18-wheeler accident. Why are these representatives so aggressive and fast at responding to trucking accidents? Because, with insurance policies that provide $Millions in insurance coverage, the trucking companies and their insurance carriers have a lot to lose if their driver is found at fault for a serious crash.
This is why trucking companies and their insurance carriers employ every tactic they can to protect their driver and their money. If they can manipulate the situation, remove or tamper with evidence, interview witnesses, and influence law enforcement investigators, they can often shift some (or all) of the blame to the injured person – leaving the injured person or their families with expensive medical bills, car repairs, lost wages, and other bills.
Trucking company insurance companies use these aggressive tactics to either reduce the value of an injured person’s claim or to completely deny payment at all.
That is why it is so important to get an experienced 18-wheeler accident attorney on your side as quickly as possible after a trucking accident. The trucking company and their team of lawyers and investigators start their investigation immediately after the accident, putting the injured person at an immediate disadvantage.
Another reason that you must have an aggressive trucking accident lawyer working for you quickly is because much of the evidence that you will need to prove your case must be obtained from the trucking company itself – every hour, and every day that passes increases the chance that important evidence will be altered, destroyed, or lost.
