What should I consider when hiring a truck accident attorney?
If you’re watching this, you may have been seriously injured in a truck collision here in Georgia, and you may be wondering how to select the best attorney to represent you in this case. First of all, you want a lawyer who does personal injury cases, not someone who practices in another field of law. Secondly, you want a lawyer who knows truck wrecks and knows the laws that go into prosecuting a truck wreck case. There are multiple federal regulations involved that are very complicated. You also want a lawyer who knows about the different types of evidence that he or she needs to look for, including electronic data that can be downloaded from tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles. Inexperienced lawyers may not be familiar with the intricate details that go into prosecuting a trucking collision case.
You also want a lawyer who has the resources to prosecute these cases. Truck wreck cases are different than regular automobile accident cases. They can be a lot more expensive to prosecute. For example, a case may require hiring experts to go out and reconstruct the accident. Does the lawyer you’re talking to have the resources to hire all those experts and bring them to bear right off the bat? These are questions you want to ask.
Finally, you want a lawyer who tries cases and goes to trial, not a lawyer who handles multiple cases at once and just turns them over and settles them. Consider whether a lawyer is going to be someone who will fold and take a cheap settlement or will take your case to trial and get the true value of your case.
