How do I deal with trucking companies or their insurance company after a Florida truck accident?
Generally speaking, you shouldn’t deal with the insurance company for the trucking company because they are specializing in protecting the truck or the truck driver or the company. They will have an expert at the scene within 24 hours of a trucking crash. All major insurance companies that insure semi tractor-trailers have an expert on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The best thing to do is to get an expert on your side. Hire an attorney who has experience in trucking cases. He’ll have access to an expert that go to the scene right away. If you are contacted, get their name, phone number and you’ll have a claim number but do not give me a statement. Just have that information available when you find somebody who’s going to go work for you and help you.
