The Challenges of Tow Truck Insurance Claims
Many things can go wrong with a truck towing another car or truck. Often, these mistakes put other people at risk, and the outcome can be devastating.
It would seem simple enough for you to file a claim with the tow truck insurance company for the losses you have so you can move forward with your life. Yet, there are many things that can make this challenging.
Determining Who Is to Blame
Tow truck insurance companies may work to shift the blame away from them and the driver. They may do this by:
- Claiming the towing equipment failed and it was the manufacturer that was responsible
- State that you, the victim, were responsible for the accident because you were distracted or in the wrong lane
- Another driver was responsible, not them
The key to remember here is that many tow truck companies are large and have powerful insurance companies who are trained to work to minimize what they pay out. One of the most important things you can do then is not to talk to them so you do not put your case at risk. Our Tulsa tow truck accident attorney can help you with that.
The Damages Can Be Severe
Another factor that makes these car accidents so challenging is the amount of damage they cause. Tow trucks are very heavy, and they carry a significant amount of weight.
As a result, they have an incredible amount of force when they hit another driver, even if they are slowing down. This can mean severe injuries.
Injuries Caused in Tow Truck Accidents
Some of the most common injuries we see in clients include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Broken or shattered bones
What makes these injuries even more worrisome is that they often come with a long road to recovery. As a result, when pursuing compensation for your losses, our goal is to, ultimately, work carefully to estimate the long-term impact on you. Your injuries may carry long-term financial compensation needs, especially if you are facing the following:
- High medical bills
- Ongoing rehabilitation needs
- Job retraining
- Mobility challenges due to permanent injury
- Medication needs
- Emotional and mental health therapy
- Changes to your home to make it accessible
Even something as simple as getting into the car to go to work may become physically and emotionally challenging. You are owed compensation for this in many cases. We fight to ensure you get it.

What You Should Do After an Accident with a Tow Truck
The initial steps should be to focus on caring for yourself and anyone else who is hurt, including calling the police, getting medical care, and filing a police report. But what should you do after that?
Focus on Your Medical Care
Always ensure that you are focused on recovery. That means that you are going to all of your doctor appointments, rehab appointments, and other therapy. Even if you have to see a specialist, do so. Ultimately, if the tow truck driver is responsible for these losses, they will foot the bill for these costs.
Work with an Injury Attorney, Not the Insurance Company
You do not have to communicate directly with the insurance company in this situation. Rather, it is better if you allow an attorney to communicate with the insurance company of the responsible party. Doing so helps to eliminate any risk that you may say something that jeopardizes your claim.
Your tow truck accident lawyer in Tulsa will help you to document what occurred and provide all the details necessary to the insurance company. Your attorney will also work to stay on top of the insurance company in the pursuit of compensation, reducing their ability to stall.
