Insurance Companies & Truck Accidents
Fighting for the rights of the injured in Middle Georgia
After a truck accident, financial compensation is usually ultimately paid by the insurance companies. But getting that compensation isn’t easy. Trucking companies and their insurance carriers often deny responsibility, and won’t agree to pay without a fight. The Macon law firm Jon R. Hawk, Sr., LLC is always ready for that fight on behalf of people injured in truck accidents.
Truck accident attorney Jon R. Hawk began his career 20 years ago representing insurance companies. He knows how the claims process works and what insurance companies do to try to reduce or deny claims. He’s learned how to build strong cases that get results for clients.
Claims involving truck accidents can be complicated. But Jon and his legal team are experienced at sorting through the confusion to get the facts and build a winning case.
One of the obstacles often encountered in truck accident cases is multiple insurers. For example, if your accident involved a tractor-trailer, several insurance companies can be involved in the resolution of your claim. This can include your own insurance company, one for the trucking company, one for the owner of the trailer and one for the owner of the cab.
Another obstacle involves the insurance policy limits. Trucking companies often buy policies with high limits, and even a minor accident could mean a big payment. They are always looking out for their bottom line, so will put up a big fight to keep their payments as low as possible.
Jon will fight back on your behalf
He doesn’t put up with any attempts to minimize your injuries or put the blame for the accident on you. His legal team finds evidence of negligence. This includes getting evidence that belongs to the trucking company, such as maintenance records, hours of service logs and black box data.
A truck accident can leave you with serious injuries, mounting medical bills and lost income because you are unable to work. You may not be able to take part in your favorite activities or care for loved ones as you could before. Jon will meet with you to learn the true extent of your damages, and is determined to hold negligent parties responsible.
