Did you know? You may have the right to recover lost income for the days your equipment was down and unable to operate. Being an owner operator means there are a lot of things you have to do on your own. Recovering lost income due to an accident shouldn’t be one of them. We help owner operators and fleets recover money lost through not-at-fault accidents. We also handle insurance subrogation. We pursue property damage losses, including diminution of value, as well as lost income.
Downtime, Lost Revenue, Loss of Revenue, Loss of Use, Lost Income, and Business Interruption Losses are terms often intermingled within the insurance industry.
When your equipment isn’t operating, you can’t make money. For owner operators – truckers, wreckers, rideshare or delivery drivers, it’s important to get back on the road as quickly as possible after an accident.
But…your bills keep coming even if your truck isn’t bringing in the money. Owner-operators, motor carriers, and fleets who lose the use of their vehicles following an accident are stripped of their income-making capacity, playing havoc with their livelihood and bottom line profit.
Large losses of revenue add up quickly. It’s important to take action immediately.
Documents vary depending on the case. Has the adverse party admitted wrongdoing and accepted liability? If not, we will need the documents and evidence proving they were at fault. If they have agreed they were at fault, we will need documents and evidence proving the financial loss your business had because of the accident. We will provide you with a list of the documents needed.We will request a breakdown of your income and expenses. If the accident occurred during a high-income time of the year, we will want the data which proves these higher-than-normal figures. We will calculate lost profit on a daily basis and multiply this loss by the number of working days down to arrive at your lost income figure.
