Insurance Companies Aggressively Fight Against Paying Truck Accident Settlements

by Staff Blogger | September 20th, 2018

When someone is hurt in an auto accident and pursues a compensation claim against the other driver’s insurance company, they may face an uphill battle. But unless the injuries are catastrophic, insurance companies often cede to victims and offer settlements—especially when victims have lawyers on their side.

But truck accidents are different. That’s because the insurance policies associated with commercial trucks are often several times larger than those associated with passenger vehicles. Naturally, insurance companies don’t want to pay the money involved in those policies to victims, and that means they fight even more aggressively to reduce or deny valid claims.

At Skolrood Law Firm, we deal with overzealous and aggressive insurance companies every day, but their truly combative nature comes out when they’re facing claims from truck accident victims.
