Benefits of Legal Representation After a Truck Accident

Insurance adjusters are not there to help you. Their job is to minimize the losses their company suffers and mitigate the amount of money they pay out to you. Insurance adjusters do their best to shift the blame onto you, and they are backed by a team of West Virginia Truck accident lawyers in Princeton who will try to ensure your claim is denied or that they can settle for the smallest amount as possible.

Many people receive calls from insurers within days of the accident to offer a nominal settlement. These settlements are usually the bare minimum, and they are issued in order to be done with the case before it moves forward. You should always first speak with a lawyer first. Let the representative you will not discuss the case or consider a settlement offer without first doing so.
