1) Choosing the Right Truck Accident Attorney
When deciding on a truck accident attorney, there are four things you should ask yourself and the lawyer you’re considering. The first is that whether or not the lawyer is a personal injury trial lawyer. By personal injury, I mean, first of all, that’s all he does: personal injury cases. He doesn’t handle wills, divorces, or bankruptcies. Second, is he a trial lawyer? Is he a lawyer that will take this case from beginning to end? Will he go to court with you? Will he fight for a verdict for you in front of a judge and jury? The other thing you should ask is if they are a trial lawyer that has achieved successful results in the courtroom. He should be able to show you his past results.
Lastly, that he has board-certification, the highest honor the state bestows on a lawyer. Only 3% of the lawyers in the state are recognized as board-certified in a particular area of law. By asking those four questions, you should be able to build trust between you and your lawyer. If you have any questions for us, feel free to call our office.
2) Settlement Timeline
A case involving a commercial tractor-trailer accident can often take 18 months to resolve. That’s on the low side. If it’s a severe truck accident, it could take up to three years. Why? Because those are some of the most devastating accidents there are involving some of the most horrific injuries there can be. We have to examine the injuries, what it took to heal, how much it will cost, and whether or not the insurance company will be fair. If the insurance company doesn’t bring forward a reasonable offer, then that makes us have to file suit. If we have to file a suit, then we have to look at the court’s docket to see how many cases are in front of us before we can have a trial date. If you have any questions about how long your case will take, please contact our office.
