You might be asking: "How
do I deal with trucking companies or their insurance carriers
after a truck accident?"
The best advice is not to deal with them. The first
thing you should do is contact an expert truck accident lawyer
such as Attorney Bill Odum. The last thing you want to do is
personally negotiate with a trucking company about your semi
truck accident or semi rig injury. Most trucking companies are
highly skilled at semi truck accident investigation and
claims. Anything you say or sign may be held against you
further down the road.
