Why Experience Matters When Hiring a Trucking Accident Lawyer
Finding an experienced lawyer is important when you’ve been in an accident with a truck. There are regulations that govern trucks that do not govern our cars on the road. Law firms that have experience dealing with trucking companies and insurance companies will have the resources to take your case to trial if needed providing you with the best legal representation to protect your rights. Whereas as firm without experience or resources may not have the money to collect evidence, investigate what happened and then take your case to trial, and may end up taking the first offer your insurance company gives even when you deserve more.
Ask your truck accident lawyer how many cases he or she has taken to trial and how many years experience they have. Also you can check with the Bar Association to see if they have any disciplinary actions against them. You can also see if they have accreditations by AVVO, Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell and more.
