Choosing a Truck Accident Attorney
Watch this video to learn what you should be looking for when choosing a truck accident attorney to handle your Miami injury claim.
What should I look for when choosing a truck accident lawyer?
I got a phone call from somebody that was hit by a truck. They had not realized how different a truck accident is from a regular car crash case. There are many things that go into working a truck accident case, and you need a lawyer who understands this. Consider this case: a woman’s car was hit by a truck on the Expressway and, thinking it was going to be the same as any car accident – she exchanged information. Little did she know that the case would actually involve a good deal of extra investigation on the part of the police officers called to the scene. This is because there are extra rules that apply to truckers that don’t apply to anyone driving a regular car. Truck drivers have driver logs. They have requirements regarding speed, changing of lanes, distance. A skilled lawyer would know to look for these things.
These insurance companies representing truck drivers are not looking out for your best interests, either. They have teams that go out and try to get all the information they can, then “hide the ball” to protect their interests. You need to make sure that you get a lawyer that has experience with these things and who knows what to look for and knows where to look for it. If you’re looking for the best lawyer for you, regarding your truck accident case, don’t think that somebody who just handles regular car accidents is going to be able to take this case on for you.
At the end of the day, these unreasonable truck insurance companies would rather have these things go into litigation; it’s part of their delay process. You need to make sure you get a lawyer that isn’t afraid to go to court and isn’t afraid to try the case, because at the end of the day, you need to make sure you get the compensation that you deserve. A lot of the injuries involved in truck crashes can be quite serious. Make sure you take photos and get as much information as possible. Get the insurance information. Go see a doctor. These truck accident cases are only similar in the sense that your health is the most important factor involved. Finally, make sure you get the right lawyer for you.
