A simple fender-bender can often turn into something more. A claimant pursuing you for damages may result in a seemingly minor settlement. But frequently these are false claims, schemed to exploit your liability. One or two cases may not cause much harm, but the potential for an ongoing caseload of this nature can bring financial ruin to a trucking company. It can also set a bad precedent, and damage a company’s reputation.
To stop the bleeding, it is crucial to prepare for these accidents, execute your plan, and defend these claims when you are not at fault and/or there were no injuries. Turn the tables on the plaintiffs’ attorneys and give them an economic downside by making it clear they are in for an uphill fight that will be fought to the end. The keys to the low impact care are to PREPARE, EXECUTE, and DEFEND aggressively. For more on this matter, contact us today.
