Fighting the Big National Insurance Companies for You
Fighting a truck company and its insurance carrier for full and fair compensation for your injuries resulting from a truck accident means going against the largest corporate interests in America. Make sure your attorney has the experience and trial skills to win.
Why does experience matter in truck accident injury and wrongful death cases? Because truck accident injury cases require an in-depth understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations and the strategies truck companies use to defend themselves against damages. Having the right personal injury lawyer on your side can mean the difference between accepting what the insurance company offers and recovering the full and just payment you will need for a lifetime of financial costs.
We will use every resource at our disposal to fight aggressively to help you recover maximum money damages from the trucking company, its insurer and other parties who may be held liable for negligence. Quick Law Group
Protecting Your Rights
Truck companies know they are exposed to heavy liability if a motor vehicle accident is caused because of negligence by their driver or their truck is unsafe for the road. Because of the massive size of the trucks, physics often prevents the driver from making a safe driving maneuver or stopping in time to prevent a serious accident.
Truck accidents in Washington roadways, particularly on I-405 or I-90 or State Highway 519, Highway 520 or Highway 523, can result in multiple car wrecks. Truck companies may have one of their own investigators on the scene within minutes, looking for evidence that will point blame at a car accident victim, and away from themselves.
We Never Represent Insurance Companies or Truck Companies
Some common truck company insurance defense bad faith strategies include:
- Offering a quick settlement before the injury victim has a chance to speak to a lawyer
- Delays in processing the claim until the plaintiff gives up and accepts a low settlement
- Covering up violations of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations (FMCSA regulations)
- Requiring excessive and frustrating amounts of medical records and police reports
- Blaming the plaintiff for causing the accident
- Blaming a third party such as a contracted maintenance company or freight loader
- Removing or changing evidence from the scene of the wreck
- Destroying damaging evidence and records
Overcoming these aggressive strategies means knowing the regulations and pursuing an intelligent, effective case, backed by hard evidence of truck company or truck driver negligence. We will use every resource at our disposal to fight aggressively to help you recover maximum money damages from the trucking company, its insurer and other parties who may be held liable for negligence.
