How To Win a Personal Injury Claim If a Tow Truck Further Damaged Your Vehicle

If your vehicle breaks down, or if you have been in an accident, you may need to have a two truck take your car to a repair facility. While tow truck drivers have undergone training, they can still make mistakes and accidents can happen. If the tow truck causes further damage to your vehicle, you may be able to pursue a claim against the towing company to cover the costs of the damages that they caused when towing your vehicle.

When you are having a vehicle towed, you should always get photos of the vehicle before the tow truck driver loads it. If possible, you should get a video of the loading process because that may catch the incident that causes further damage if your vehicle suffers additional damages.

Inspect your vehicle right after it reaches the destination and is unloaded, and if there is more damage, then you should photograph those damages. Maintain supporting documentation that indicates your losses.

Evidence To Help Your Claim For Tow Truck Damage

You will need evidence that will support your personal injury claim so you can recover compensation for your property damages after a tow truck has caused further damages to your vehicle. Photos of the vehicle before it was towed, photos of the vehicle after it was towed, video footage of the vehicle being loaded, repair estimates, and so forth. The more supporting documentation that you have, the more likely you will be to succeed with your claim to recover property damages from the tow truck company.

Auto damages can be expensive. Just what seems to be a minor repair can cost well over a thousand dollars to repair.

With the advanced technology used on vehicles, and the added expense of cars, a car could suffer several thousand dollars of damages and not be totaled. You will want to have a qualified auto repair technician to inspect the damages and prepare a detailed and itemized estimate for making repairs to your vehicle and to get it looking as good as new again.

How a Lawyer Could Help Win Your Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury claims are challenging. If you have suffered property damage and you are pursuing a claim against a towing company because the tow truck damaged your vehicle even more, it can be tricky. A personal injury lawyer will take on the towing company and their insurer and will work to negotiate a fair settlement.

Personal injury attorneys don’t require upfront payment because they take claims on the contingency basis. That means that your lawyer will not be paid until you win your claim and recover compensation for your damages.

Personal injury lawyers will try to negotiate a settlement directly with the insurance company, but if the matter isn’t resolved, they will file a lawsuit and take the matter to court. To get your claim on track, complete the Free Case Evaluation Form on this page today.
