Why Is It Important to Hire a Tow Truck Accident Lawyer?
Our truck accident lawyers can help you in many ways. Even though you can fight for your settlement on your own, we recommend that you get a lawyer to help you for the following reasons.
Handling Insurance Companies
Even if you’ve been in a serious tow truck accident, most insurance companies won’t care. While it’s hard to believe anyone would ever be so callous, insurance companies are businesses, and they only care about protecting their bottom line at the end of the day. You should always assume that the insurance company is trying to get you to settle for less.
With years of experience dealing with insurance companies, our tow truck accident attorneys will handle the insurance companies for you. Our team has successfully recovered over $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for our clients in the past. We know how to deal with them and how to get them to actually listen to the demands you have for your settlement.
Filing Your Claim on Time
Many tow truck accident victims aren’t aware that the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (OCGA) §9-3-33 only gives them two years from the date of their accident to file a claim. Because of this, many end up letting their accident expire, and they can no longer file for any compensation. We won’t let this happen to you. Our attorneys will help you make the most of the time you have and help you build a strong case for your claim before the deadline is up.
Providing You with Answers and Advice
You may have a lot of specific questions regarding your tow truck accident case. Since every case is different, you may not find all of the answers you’re looking for online. Our attorneys are a one-stop resource for you to get all the answers and legal advice you need for your claim.
We always put your needs and requests first before anything else. We aim to serve our clients honestly, openly, and with compassion.

What If I Can Settle Fast with the Insurance Company?
If the insurance company reaches out to you offering you a settlement offer, don’t accept it. The first settlement they offer you will never be the accurate amount that you deserve. More often than not, it’s a meager amount that won’t even amount to a fraction of the damages you’ve sustained.
Once you accept their offer, they no longer have any obligation to provide you with any additional compensation. Please don’t let the insurance companies trick you out of the settlement you truly need. Always remember that everything the insurance company does is to try and get you to accept less compensation.
What Should My Settlement Amount Be?
The average tow truck accident settlement falls around several thousand dollars. It’s not possible to tell you an actual average because tow truck accidents vary wildly from case to case. One tow truck accident victim could walk away with $20,000 while another can walk away with several million.
How much your settlement will be depends on various factors such as:
- The severity of your tow truck accident.
- How extensive your injuries and damages are.
- What kind of lasting negative impacts you’re facing after the accident.
- What kind of effect your accident has had on your loved ones.
Our team here at John Foy & Associates will assess the entirety of your case and come up with accurate calculations on how much your settlement should come out to.
