Will My Truck Accident Lawyer Deal with the Insurance Companies for Me?
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, the last thing you want to do is deal with insurance companies yourself. That’s frustrating, and you would much rather focus on recovering. However, if you hire a qualified truck accident lawyer, he or she can deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. This allows you to heal while your attorney fights to protect your rights.
Phillips Law Group has successfully secured compensation for many truck accident victims. Over the past 26 years, our legal team has collected over $1 billion in compensation for more than 155,000 clients. In addition, we work on a contingency basis, so there are no fees to pay upfront. You will only pay us a portion of your settlement if we successfully achieve compensation for you.
Not only do we understand the pain and suffering that often accompany truck accidents, but we want to hear your story and see if we can help you pursue the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
Talk to a Truck Accident Lawyer First
Most insurance companies require you to report all accidents within a certain timeframe, usually 24 hours. However, this does not mean you cannot speak to a truck accident lawyer first. In fact, that’s precisely what you should do to protect your rights, even when dealing with your own insurance company.
After a truck accident, you may be shaken, upset, and possibly in pain. As a result, you may be more likely to say something you don’t really mean. Unfortunately, the insurance company may record your call, and your statements could be used against you further down the line.
Rather than talking to the insurance company yourself, speak to a Phillips Law Group attorney. He or she can review your accident and determine whether our law firm can help. What’s more, our lawyer can handle the call to your insurance company and the ongoing negotiations personally or advise you on how to best handle your situation.
No matter where you are in the US, the attorneys at Phillips Law Group want to hear your story. Speak to one of our truck accident lawyers by calling us at (602) 222-2222 or reach out online today.
The Benefits of Hiring a Truck Accident Lawyer to Deal with Insurance Companies
After a truck accident, it can take a long time to pursue compensation. It may involve lots of discussions with insurance companies – both yours and the other party’s. There are several reasons why these discussions are best handled by a qualified truck accident lawyer.
Fully aware of insurance company tactics
The goal of any insurance company is to pay as low a settlement as possible or deny your claim. Their team of insurance adjusters may look for any reason to reduce the value of your settlement.
Some insurer tactics may include asking you to:
- Accept their first settlement offer
- Provide a recorded statement
- Admit fault or partial liability
By retaining a truck accident attorney, you avoid having to deal with this pressure yourself. Then, if an insurance company calls, you can refer them to your lawyer. That way, you won’t have to deal with them at all.
Our experienced truck accident attorneys have seen all these tactics before but know what to do. When we take on your case, we will only provide the insurance companies involved in your case with the information to which they are entitled.
Experience with complicated truck accident cases
In a truck accident, several parties may be liable, including the:
- Truck driver
- Trucking company/carrier
- Truck owner (if different from the driver or company)
- Truck manufacturer
- Local government
Truck accidents may also cause more catastrophic damage and injuries than other auto accidents, as they involve very large and heavy vehicles.
Given that these cases are so complicated, insurance companies may try to make use of something you say to hold you liable for the accident. They may also try to pressure you into quickly concluding the case, making you feel you have no other option.
Truck accident lawyers understand the complications involved in litigating these types of cases and the tactics insurance companies use. Phillips Law Group’s truck attorneys have years of experience in building strong cases on behalf of our clients. Our legal team has extensive resources at our disposal to source the evidence needed to prove negligence in truck accident cases.
We fight hard to achieve fair settlements that reflect the economic and non-economic losses our clients have experienced. Our lawyers can protect your rights by handling all communication with insurance companies for you and relieving you of the pressure of navigating a complicated case.
Completely on your side
It’s important to remember that the insurance companies are not on your side. They want to conclude your case as quickly as possible and to devalue or deny your claim. On the other hand, when you hire a Phillips Law Group truck accident lawyer, you know that he or she is 100 percent on your side.
You don’t have to worry about what you say to your Phillips Law Group personal injury attorney. Under Arizona state law, all communication between an attorney and a client is privileged. Therefore, anything you disclose to your lawyer cannot be used against you, allowing you to speak openly about your case.
Able to calculate a fair settlement
Without the help of an experienced truck accident lawyer, it would be very hard to know whether or not the insurance company is offering you a fair settlement. To calculate a reasonable level of damages, a personal injury lawyer may examine the economic and non-economic impacts of your injuries.
Your economic damages may include:
- Medical expenses, both past and future
- Lost earnings
- Loss of future earning potential
- Property damage, including damage to your vehicle
The non-economic impacts of your truck accident may be your:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of normal activities
The damages you may receive in a truck accident case may also depend on whether you share fault. If you think you may have been partly to blame, you should still schedule a free case evaluation with Phillips Law Group. It may still be possible for you to pursue a claim for compensation.
Don’t accept an insurance company’s settlement offer before speaking to one of our attorneys. Call us at (602) 222-2222 or fill out our online form to schedule your free case evaluation with one of our truck accident attorneys. Our lawyer will explain the legal options open to you so you can pursue a fair settlement.
