Say, you were in a truck accident; your top priority should be to report the accident to the insurance company. But a truck accident makes for a lot of questions. Who is guilty? Who pays the damages? Who will settle the medical bills? Am I worthy of compensation for my pain and suffering? Can I ask my insurance company to recoup me for loses? And so on.

Negotiating a car accident insurance settlement is a very rigorous process. It requires a great deal of organization and documentation skills from your personal injury attorney. Patience is also crucial to the negotiation process as there would be several repetitive sessions where you will have to meticulously sit through discussions and legal processes before you ultimately receive the settlement you need and want.
With help from Clay Jenkins and Associates lawyers, this process would be simplified to the maximum. With our expertise and negotiation skills in dealing with car accident insurance cases in Dallas and neighboring areas, you can ensure that you get the maximum compensation possible.
A Truck accident attorney uses the base concept that the insurance is an agreement among the insurer and the insured. Even if the insurance firm can’t or won’t settle a claim, which should be settled below the conditions of the insurance policy, it is going against the deed. And the insured can engage the usable legal amends for the infraction, including lodging a lawsuit versus the insurance firm. Hinging on Texas Federal law and the contexts of a particular case, amends may also include other costs like the cost of the lawsuit.
Your Truck accident attorney can help you when your insurance claim is refused by your insurer. Once they put denial on paper quoting the particular policy terminology that concerns to your claim, your next move should be to confer with a Truck accident attorney specialized in claim denials. This is another complex scenario that Clay Jenkins and Associates are specialized in.
Apart from auto accident claims, we deal with wrongful death, brain injuries, workplace injuries, product liabilities, premises liabilities, dog bites, condemnation, and litigation, and more.
