As a motorist, you have a few options when it comes to pursuing a claim for damage to your property. The option you choose is likely to depend on the type of commercial insurance coverage available to take care of the damages to your property. This includes whether or not you had collision coverage at the time of the tractor-trailer accident, which can be a huge deciding factor on how to move forward with your claim. Collision coverage protects you and your family and prevents from being unable to repair your automobile or motorcycle if you are in a tractor-trailer accident. This type of coverage protects you if the trucking company’s management failed to maintain commercial insurance on their 18-wheelers before allowing their truck drivers to drive them recklessly on the roads.

Collision coverage helps you get back on the road quicker by giving you the option of working with your own insurance company to repair and replace your automobile, SUV or motorcycle, however this type of coverage is not required to own and operate a motor vehicle in the State of Illinois.

If there is no collision coverage available, then your only option is to pursue a civil claim against the trucking company’s commercial insurance carrier. The trucking company will have Property Damage Liability Coverage (PDL), which pays for the damages trucking companies and their reckless truckers might cause to an individual’s property if they are careless while operating and/or driving a semi truck on the roadways. Every driver who owns a vehicle in the State of Illinois must carry property insurance in an amount equal to or greater than $15,000.00. If you are unable to resolve the severe property loss issue with the trucking company’s carrier and/or management, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Attorney Dan Newlin may need to file litigation and potentially have a jury trial to hold the negligent truck driver liable for recklessly driving on the interstate and causing your property loss. On many occasions we find that accident involving tractor trailers many times involve more severe injuries and greater property loss and that these semi-truck accident often times leave the injured victims with permanent incapacitating injuries. Attorney Dan Newlin and his team of experienced lawyers will fight for you.

Once the trucking company has accepted liability and agreed to repair your vehicle, the insurance company will decide what to do with your vehicle. Normally, the commercial insurance company for the truck involved in the crash has the sole option to legally repair, replace or reimburse you and your family for the vehicle’s actual cash value or the “fair market value.” Fair market value is normally calculated by checking what your automobile or similar truck is currently selling for in the local classifieds. It is usually a question of cost efficiency for the insurance carrier. In the instances where the vehicle is economically impractical to repair, the insurance company will choose to replace your vehicle or simply cut you a check for the vehicle’s value. When damage to a vehicle is 80% more than its cash value, most insurance carriers will consider it a total loss. Finally, if your vehicle is a total loss and you owe more money on the vehicle than what it is worth, the insurance company will not pay more money to you simply because you are “upside down” with your car loan and a lawsuit may be necessary. .

You have the absolute legal right to handle the determination of which Chicago professional repair shop will fix the severe physical and mechanical damage to your property. However, you do have to choose a local professional repair shop that is licensed. The liable insurance carrier will then work with the Chicago professional community repair shop of the your choice and provide the resources to get your property damage properly repaired.

If you were involved in a tractor-trailer collision caused by a fatigued or negligent truck driver and suffered damages to your property, the at-fault driver’s insurance provider is legally required to immediately provide you with a rental vehicle while your car or motorcycle is being repaired.
