After a semi-truck accident, you’ll need more than just the driver’s info
To determine who is responsible for paying the claim after a serious truck accident, you must first figure out which insurance coverages are available. Since there are many different parties involved in a truck’s transportation, you must determine the following at the time the accident occurred:
– The name of the driver
– The company the driver worked for
– The owner of the truck
– The owner of the trailer
– The owner of product that the truck was transporting
– Any other holding companies, leasing agents, rental parties involved
Of course, all of the insurance companies will initially deny liability and try to point the finger at someone else and claim that it is a different insurance company that should be responsible for footing the bill. But even if a company does not accept liability right away, it does not mean they are not supposed to pay.
