At Daniel Stark, we deal with a lot of insurance companies. Our job is to negotiate fair compensation for our clients. If the insurance company is unwilling do the right thing, we take them to court. The level of resistance the insurance company puts up depends on the case type. In our experience, some of the toughest fights are truck accident cases—here’s why.

In an auto accident case, there are essentially two parties: the at-fault driver and their insurance company on one side, and the accident victim on the other. Most often we’re able to successfully negotiate these cases because it’s in the best interest of both parties to settle quickly. Truck accidents are different. In a big truck case, there’s the at-fault driver and his/her insurance company, the trucking company and their insurance company, and finally the accident victim. The trucking company has teams of lawyers on their side, as does the at-fault driver’s insurance company, all working to pay you as little as possible for your injuries.

Sound like a fair fight? It’s not.

That’s why it’s vitally important that you don’t try to go it alone after a big truck accident. Doing so could mean you’ll receive a fraction of the settlement you may have with legal representation. If you’ve been injured in a big truck accident, we encourage you to get sound legal representation as soon as possible. The trucking company has probably already started their case against you, and the longer you wait, the harder the fight will be. The trucking company has a team of lawyers fighting for them. Who’s fighting for you?
