Insurance Companies and Truck Accidents
Experienced Nashville attorney who gets results
When you're dealing with an insurance company after a truck accident, don’t be surprised if it feels like you’re getting hit twice. After a bad truck accident, the focus should be on your healing. Unfortunately, that’s not always possible. At The Law Office of Eric Beasley, we know there’s often an insurance company standing in the way demanding that you prove your injuries or that you weren’t at fault before providing you with the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
If you or a loved one is the victim of a truck accident, it is important that you contact a lawyer experienced in Tennessee personal injury law as soon as possible. Don’t fall into an insurance adjuster’s trap. A simple “yes” or “no” at the wrong time could ruin your whole case.
Insurance company tactics
Here are just some of the tricks we’ve seen insurance companies try to pull:
“We’re on your side”
After a truck accident, insurance company adjusters will be in contact with you. The adjuster you meet will most likely be pleasant and friendly. They want to build trust to make it easier to pull information out of you that they can twist around and use against you later. You do not have to, nor should you, talk to the insurance company of an at-fault driver. It may seem odd - because you’ve been a paying client for years - but you cannot fully trust the adjuster from your insurance provider, either. Say as little as possible.
“This is the best we can do”
Insurance companies know that you are likely unsure of what to do after a serious truck accident. They try to exploit this difficult time in your life by offering you a tiny settlement and bullying you into believing that this is the best offer you’re going to get.
You do not need to settle right away. Your winning verdict or settlement should cover past, current, and future expenses related to the accident. We understand no one wants to take part in a long and drawn-out claim process or lawsuit. The Law Office of Eric Beasley will work quickly to get you the compensation you deserve, but we will never accept a lowball settlement.
“Say it again”
After an accident, insurance adjusters – yours and/or the at-fault driver’s – are collecting evidence to build a case against you and your claim. They will often ask many versions of the same question in the hopes of getting you to contradict yourself or show even the slightest bit of uncertainty about your claim. They want to make it sound like the accident was your fault, that you don’t know what you’re talking about or that you’re a liar. If they’re successful, they may be able to get out of paying you anything on your claim.
