1. After a Truck Accident
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident in the state of Arizona, some of the things you should do first is make sure you get to your medical providers and get the treatment you need. Trucks can cause some serious injuries, and you want to make sure you get those evaluated and treated.
Next, you want to make sure that you follow your doctor’s orders, that you take care of yourself and do everything you can to get yourself back to full strength as soon as possible. If possible, you or someone with you should take photographs of the scene, all of the vehicles involved, and broad pictures of the scene to get as much information as you can. The next thing you should do is make sure you hire an attorney who can preserve the evidence. There’s a lot of electronic data on trucks that will go away quickly if it’s not preserved, so you want somebody to help you make sure you get all of that information preserved, make sure witnesses don’t disappear, that they’ve had a chance to be interviewed before all of that happens.
Make sure you hire the right attorney. Hire somebody who deals with trucking cases on a regular basis. Hire a trial lawyer so you’ve got somebody who knows what they’re doing, knows the process, and is willing to go as far as necessary to make sure that you get a fair settlement or resolution for your case.
2. Choosing a Truck Accident Attorney
If you’ve been injured in a commercial truck accident, you need to have an attorney who deals with that area of law. Commercial truck accidents deal with a lot of regulations. You need somebody who has the experience in reviewing those regulations, knows how they apply to your case, and knows how to deal with those. You need somebody who focuses on truck because they’re not just the same as a car crash in a lot of ways.
Another important thing is to get a trial attorney. A lot of these trucking companies push their cases to trial, so if you’re going to go to trial, you need somebody who’s preparing for it from the beginning and who the insurance companies will, in fact, go to trial and will take it there if necessary.
3. Truck Accident Attorney Fees
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident in the state of Arizona, you probably have a lot of concerns about how you’re going to pay for your medical bills and how you’re going to replace the income from not working. One of the other common questions is, “How can I afford an attorney to pursue this claim?” The good news is, when you hire us, we take on all of the costs, initially. We do everything that’s necessary to preserve the evidence, get the discovery, and get the case ready for settlement or trial, and you only pay us when there’s a successful resolution.
