The Advocates Semi-Truck Accident Claim Process

Step 1: Investigate the Accident

First, your attorney will investigate all the facts from your accident and collect evidence. The Advocates do this by obtaining the police report and any photos or videos of the scene of the crash, your injuries, and the damaged vehicles, as well as contact any witnesses and record their statements. After we have determined fault, we will begin building your injury claim.

Step 2: Build Your Claim

Building a successful truck accident claim is one of the longest steps in the claims process. Your attorney must wait until you’ve completely finished all your treatment before we can compile a comprehensive file of all your medical records. While this is a time-consuming step, it is the most important step so please be patient.

Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement

After you’ve finished treatment for your injuries and we’ve collected all your medical records, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Once these documents have been received, The Advocates will begin the negotiation process. Most insurance companies try to low-ball accident injuries, but your attorney will get you the best settlement offer you are legally owed.

Step 4: Litigate Your Case

If you are not satisfied with your offer, then you have the option to file a lawsuit and litigate your case in court. Keep in mind, this is the longest step in the claim process and you may need to appear before a judge and a jury should you take this route.
