Being injured in a collision with a truck while driving or riding in a passenger car is often the start of a long, painful ordeal. Truck or tractor-trailer accidents can cause extensive damage and serious, life-altering injury. On top of injuries, commercial trucking companies behind most truck accidents have the resources and the will to deny responsibility and payments to the injured.

There are typically multiple factors and actors in a serious accident involving a commercial truck (tractor-trailers, tankers, transfer trucks, dump trucks, etc.). This makes it important to obtain help quickly if you’ve been in a truck accident that will have lasting consequences for you and/or your family.
Very soon after a truck accident, you may find yourself dealing with parties intent on stopping you from obtaining the compensation you are truly due for your injuries, property damage, and other losses. The trucking industry is big business, and those involved have a lot to protect.
A truck accident may involve a:
It is not unusual for a trucker to deny he or she has done anything wrong and, instead, blame the driver who has been hit or someone or something else.
Any combination of the factors above may be involved in your truck accident. As your attorneys, Zlotolow & Associates will conduct the investigation required to identify all parties truly responsible for the crash you were injured in. We will follow up with one or more truck accident claims that seek compensation from all responsible parties.
In the meantime, you may hear from an insurance company that represents a party liable (legally responsible) for your truck accident. Particularly after a catastrophic truck accident that gets a lot of attention, it is not unusual for a trucking company to send insurance company representatives out to offer what looks like big settlement checks.
If you are offered a fast settlement after a truck accident, you should reject it. It is important that you turn down any offer from any insurance company until your accident and injuries have been thoroughly investigated and explained. Accepting a settlement closes your claim, and doing so prematurely can cost you the money you deserve. This is what the insurance company wants.
