Steps to Take After a Trucking Accident in New Jersey (Part B)

Notifying Your Insurer After a New Jersey Truck Accident

When filing your New Jersey truck accident claim, you should notify your insurer of any injuries and property damage that you suffered. If your injuries are serious, you may also claim damages for: 

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost wages as the result of time away from work; and
  • And pain and/or suffering that you've experienced

Once your New Jersey truck accident claim had been filed, you will be contacted by an insurance adjuster. This may be an adjuster from your insurer or from the truck driver's or trucking company's insurer.

When speaking to an adjuster, it is important to say as little as you can. Even the most seemingly innocent comment may affect your ability to collect the full value of your accident claim.

An insurance claims adjuster may ask you questions such as: 

  • How have your injuries made you feel?
  • What were you doing just before the accident occurred?
  • What did you do immediately following the truck accident?
  • How have your injuries affected your daily life?
  • What medical treatments have you received?
  • What other non-medical damages have you suffered because of the accident? 

Any of your answers to these questions can be used to reduce the value of your claim. Therefore, before speaking to an adjuster, it is best that you speak to a New Jersey truck accident lawyer. A lawyer can advise you on how to speak to the insurance claims adjuster, or better yet, handle all of the communications on your behalf. Furthermore, a New Jersey truck accident lawyer can talk to you about all of the elements that will impact the potential value of your claim.

How can a New Jersey truck accident lawyer help?

When filing a truck accident claim, a New Jersey truck accident lawyer can represent your interests. By advising you throughout the insurance claims process, a New Jersey truck accident lawyer can prevent you from making costly mistakes. If your insurance claim is denied, an attorney can file a lawsuit in the proper court of law.
