Choosing a Truck Accident Attorney

In a Truck Accident Don't Make These MistakesIf 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.

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.

Mistakes to Avoid After a Truck Accident

As part of our practice handling trucking cases, we find a lot of people that make mistakes in handling the trucking case. People don’t get treatment soon enough. You have to get into a doctor and get the treatment they recommend. The second mistake is not following the doctor’s orders. If the doctor asks you to do something, make sure you comply with the those orders. With trucking cases, a big mistake would be not retaining an attorney quickly enough. Specifically with trucking cases, there’s a lot of electronic data on the trucks. There’s a lot of information that will go away if you don’t act. You need to get an attorney involved for that reason. You also want to make sure that you get an attorney who knows what to be looking for to keep that information from going away, and you need to have somebody who’s experienced in and focuses on trucking cases.
