Arizona insurance laws are complicated. Let us help you deal with your claim after a Phoenix truck accident.
There may be numerous insurers involved. While a single insurance company typically represents a motorist, several may represent a truck driver. The driver himself will likely have an insurance policy, and the tractor and trailer may be covered under two additional insurance policies. Dealing with multiple companies can make getting fair reimbursement for injuries and damages complex.
Trucking companies often employ their own accident investigators. Trucking companies stand to lose a lot after an accident, so most have measures in place to help them avoid making payments to victims. Many trucking companies even employ their own accident investigators. These individuals will be on the scene quickly to assess the situation, collect evidence and interview witnesses. The mandate of these professionals is to minimize the liability of the trucking company whenever possible, which is why it's so important for victims to hire a lawyer who will work for them.
Crucial evidence may be lost. Analyzing a trucking accident to determine who was at fault involves the collection of many different types of evidence. Evidence can include skid marks, impact marks, gas stains, driver's logs and drug and alcohol test results. Rain and wind can destroy physical evidence if it is not collected quickly, and the trucking company may lose or even alter records in an effort to avoid compensating the victim.
Insurers may offer victims less than what the law entitles to them. A truck accident can irrevocably change a person's life. Often, insurance companies will offer unfair settlements to accident victims in an attempt to simply make the problem disappear. Hiring an Phoenix big rig accident attorney familiar with the complex insurance regulations of the trucking industry can help ensure that individuals get all the damages they are eligible for under state and federal law.
