Insurance Companies are in Business to Make Money
The federal government requires trucking companies to purchase sizable insurance policies to protect against the inevitable accidents that occur. Many people hold the misconception that the trucking insurance compensation process is quick and relative free of surprises just because the companies have insurance. Well, guess again!
All insurance companies are in the business of taking-in as much in premiums as possible and paying out as little as absolutely necessary in claims. Since insurance policies for 18-wheelers involve huge sums of money, much greater than your personal car insurance, the insurance company’s main focus is to avoid paying you fairly, in order to maintain its high profits. Insurance companies fear rising settlement expenses. So it comes as no surprise that they habitually deny every claim possible, whenever possible, and for as long as possible. Without the right attorney on your side, pulling hens’ teeth is easier than collecting a fair settlement from an insurance company.
While the Texas Civil Practices and Remedies Codes provide the right for someone who has been injured in a trucking accident, or the family of someone who has been killed, to seek compensation for the harm done, the law doesn’t say compensation is automatically granted whenever a victim claims an injury. This is the dirty little secret that insurance companies don’t want you to know until you find out the hard way by having to deal with an out-of-hand claim denial by an insurer.
You, as plaintiff, must first prove the liability of the party (or parties) responsible for the accident and the injuries that you suffer as a result of that accident. Furthermore, in any liability case, the injured plaintiff holds the burden of proof to clearly demonstrate that the compensation requested fairly reflects the loss produced by those the damages. The best way for a victim in an 18-wheeler accident to ensure full compensation is to find assistance from an experienced 18 wheeler accident injury lawyer who knows how to clearly investigate, and then prove the defendant’s undeniable liability. That’s the way to win equitable damages.
