Bridge Claims Adjusters- Expert Investigation to Mitigate Losses
Rule 1: Use An Experienced Bridge Claim Adjuster
When an accident occurs involving one of your insured’s commercial vehicles and a bridge, why leave it to anyone else besides a knowledgeable expert?
There are over 600,000 bridges in the United States and there are thousands of accidents involving bridge’s every year. Many of these bridges are structurally deficient. If one of your vehicles hits one of these deficient bridges, how do you know if you are needlessly paying pre-existing damages from prior accidents, or upgrades to current federal standards?
When one of your commercial auto’s does hit a bridge, your first step should be to call an experienced bridge claims adjuster. Give yourself the peace of mind that your settlement will be fair and accurate.
Rule 2: Make a plan and stick to it.
Many times the DOT will try to force a settlement based on the threat of litigation and undocumented claims amounts. When negotiating settlements, it is important to know your facts going in, making a plan for mitigation and then sticking to the facts and your plan.
Many claims can be settled for far less than the original amount, simply by having a knowledgeable expert working for you. We can assist in developing a course of action, documentation required and negotiating a fair settlement.
