According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics, well over two million people are injured in traffic collisions every year. The variety of injury scenarios is endless. A driver momentarily looks down at a mobile device and slams into the rear of another vehicle. An elderly driver, unfamiliar with a neighborhood never sees a stop sign and crashes into a pedestrian crossing the road. A truck driver, weary from too many hours on the road, doesn’t notice the icy patch of road ahead, loses control of his vehicle and veers into oncoming traffic.
Insurance companies have shown increasingly aggressive tactics as they defend these cases. Carriers move in quickly after the incident and request tape-recorded statements, under the guise of “investigation.” To the contrary, they are seeking admissions from the injured party to use against that party if the matter goes to court.
If you have been injured in an automobile or trucking accident, you need an attorney with the expertise to fight the insurance carriers all the way to trial if necessary.
