James Fox: A Lawyer to Protect Your Rights in a Truck Accident
When it comes to a truck accident, most people look to their insurance as adequate coverage. Trucking companies insure their trucks and tractor-trailers for much more than a regular car. This is due to the large amount of time and distance on the road, and the increased chance of a catastrophic injury or wrongful death.
Injury and accident victims can expect the insurance adjuster to use pressure tactics to avoid payment of insurance benefits. Their goal is to limit payments. Some adjustors know how to use strategies that can be labeled abusive; anything to convince you into settling for less than your actual damages and what you deserve. This is when you need an experienced professional who knows how to deal with the insurance companies for you.
