How should you choose a truck trailer accident lawyer? You’ve got to do at least three things if you’re looking for somebody to handle a serious case involving a tractor-trailer. First, find a lawyer that has experience in handling trucking cases. Find out if they have a proven track record or not. It’ll also tell you if they’re not afraid to go to court or if they’ll accept the first settlement offer you get.
Funding is the second thing you want to look for in a lawyer. Trucking accident cases aren’t cheap, and you want to have the money to pay for it. According to this recent study, the average cost to the victim of a tractor-trailer accident can range from $15,000 to $1.3 million. When it comes to serious injuries, hospital bills, lost wages, and other damages, the outcome of the case is important. It can determine if somebody has enough money to get their life back.
Finally, the last thing you should do is make sure you actually like your lawyer. You need to meet their staff and make sure they’ve got the manpower to get the job done. The average trucking case is a full-time job. We’ve got the manpower at Simpson Law Group. We’re a small, focused firm that can devote all of our time and attention to one case. We make sure our client has a powerful team backing them up.
I can send somebody to a junkyard or a tow yard tomorrow to look at the car that was involved. I can send somebody else to going to a different tow yard to look at the big rig that’s involved. Whether it’s going to the hospital or trying to get the police report, we can do that. Overall, that’s the kind of team you need.
If you don’t get on fast, horrible outcomes can result. You can miss critical evidence and opportunities can pass you by. In conclusion, timing is everything in a trucking case. This is why we have people that can go different directions and make it all happen together collectively as a team.
