What we do
Processing A Claim After A Trucking Accident
In Colorado, commercial trucking companies must follow all Federal Motor Carrier Administration regulations. They must ensure that their drivers don't exceed the appropriate driving schedule set forth by these regulations. They must also ensure that their drivers stop at designated weighing stations as directed. Any failure to comply with these regulations increases the odds of a trucking accident. The following is information about processing a claim after a trucking accident through a nationwide claims adjuster.
Presenting All Injuries of the Victim
The claim must include all injuries by any victim that was injured during the trucking accident. All victims must provide medical records and invoices for their medical treatment. These details are vital for processing the claim as they determine if any victim is entitled to a higher award through the insurance coverage.
Auto Repair Costs
All auto repair costs must also be submitted with the claim. The drivers who were involved in the accident must present the claims adjusters with at least three estimates for their auto repair requirements. The adjusters will determine what estimate is most appropriate based on the repair requirements identified. This includes other commercial or consumer-owned vehicles that were involved in the accident. Any other forms of property damage must also be included in the claim with a clear estimate of requirements.
Settlements for Permanent Injuries and Disabilities
Any victims that developed permanent injuries or a disability must present full evidence of these circumstances to the insurer. Under these conditions, the victim could receive a larger settlement through the insurance. The policy defines the type of coverage that is available to these victims based on their total loss in the trucking accident.
Coverage for the Commercial Vehicle
The auto repair requirements for the commercial vehicle are also included in the claim. An estimate presented by the trucking company is needed to complete the claim. If the driver was injured all information about their expenses should be included in the claim when processed. However, if the driver violated federal regulations, they may not receive any coverage.
Mitigating the Risk of a Lawsuit
The insurance claim could also provide options to mitigate a possible risk of a lawsuit. If the trucking company has liability coverage, they could submit a claim for a settlement. The claims adjuster must review the policy based on the projected lawsuit award.
In Colorado, commercial trucking companies must process an insurance claim at any time that an accident occurs. They must provide coverage for victims if their driver is at fault. They must also present options that could lower their risk of a lawsuit. Commercial business owners who need to review their options with insurance adjusters contact Aspen Claims Service right now.
