Frequently Asked Questions
Unlike car accidents, you often do not deal with just another driver and his or her insurance company after a truck accident. Instead, truck accidents often involve many different entities. One company might own the tractor-trailer's cab. Another company might own the trailer. A third company might own the contents of the truck. A fourth company might be responsible for loading the truck. And a fifth company responsible for unloading the truck.
In each case, there are often several different insurance companies and lawyers representing each company. That's why it's critical that you have someone you can trust on your side looking out for your best interests.
Initially, the Virginia State Police or police department where your accident took place will investigate your crash. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) also occasionally investigates serious or fatal truck accidents. In addition, insurance companies and trucking companies often conduct their own investigations, sometimes within hours of the tragedy. If you or a loved one was injured or killed, you will need someone on your side looking out for your best interests and searching for evidence on your behalf.
Don't try to debate the truck driver. Don't answer any questions if you're contacted directly by the trucking company or the insurance company for the truck driver. Any statements (verbal or written) you make to the truck driver, the trucking company or the other driver's insurance company could be used to deny or reduce your claim. Simply refer all questions to your attorney. If you haven't retained a lawyer, call us as soon as possible. We can deal directly with them and launch a thorough investigation to clear your name and get you the money you rightfully deserve.
