Will the Insurance Company Settle or Dispute My Tractor Trailer Injury Claim?
If you’ve been injured in a tractor trailer accident, you and your First Coast tractor trailer injury lawyer will most likely have to deal with the insurance company of the person, persons, or company responsible for your accident. Whether the insurance company disputes your claim or tries very hard to reach a settlement depends on the degree of fault between the parties.
If, for example, it is clear-cut that the insurance company’s insured is fully responsible and thus liable for your accident, then the insurer will double its efforts to settle a claim with your First Coast tractor trailer injury lawyer. However, there are certain circumstances in which the insurer will dispute your personal injury claim. These situations include:
- Claims where someone other than the insured person is at fault. The person at fault could have been you or a third party.
- Claims where the insurance claims adjuster doubts that you really have an injury or that you were injured at the level of severity that you claim. This is why it is advisable for you to keep meticulous records of your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses arising out of your injury. Documentation will bolster your credibility and support your assertion that you really do have an injury.
- Claims where either you or your witnesses embellished, made up, or lied about the nature of the injury that you sustained from the tractor trailer accident.
