What Is The Truck Accident Claim Process in Philadelphia?

On behalf of Soloff & Zervanos, P.C.

If you or a loved one gets injured in an accident caused by a truck driver or trucking company, you will want to know how you can secure compensation for your losses. The truck accident claims process can be more complicated than traditional car insurance claims. At Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., our Philadelphia truck accident attorneys want to discuss this process and what you can do to ensure maximum compensation.

Understanding this process

The truck accident claims process is any effort used to obtain compensation for someone injured due to the negligence of a truck driver or trucking company. There are generally two ways that victims have to recover the compensation they are entitled to:

  1. Through negotiations with the legally liable party or their insurance carrier.
  2. Through a personal injury lawsuit filed against the legally liable party.

The first step in this process for any truck accident injury victim is to find a skilled attorney with the experience and resources necessary to conduct a thorough investigation and exert pressure on the liable party. An attorney will get to work immediately on this case by:

  • Obtaining all evidence related to the incident, including photo and video surveillance, accident reports, eyewitness statements, and more.
  • Securing data from the truck’s “black box” as well as data related to the trucker’s hours of service.
  • Obtaining records related to the truck driver’s safety history as well as the safety and maintenance history of the trucking company.

Your Philadelphia truck accident attorney will use all this information to build a case against the liable party. Your attorney will obtain your medical records and properly calculate your total losses in order to negotiate a settlement that covers all of your accident-related expenses.

Most truck accident cases are settled out of court in an agreement with an insurance carrier. However, if a fair settlement offer is not made or if a claim is denied, your attorney will file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable parties on your behalf.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, there were more than 7,000 total heavy truck crashes in the Commonwealth during the latest reporting year of data available. According to PennDOT, many of these incidents were caused by vehicle failure and truck driver negligence.
