How Do I Find a Good Truck Accident Lawyer?

How Do I Find a Good Truck Accident Lawyer? | Truck Accident Lawyers | High Stakes Injury Law

How you find a good truck accident lawyer could depend on your personal preference. You have your own criteria for what you want in a lawyer. However, you might also consider a lawyer’s experience, what their previous clients say about them, and how you feel during your personal interactions with the attorney’s team.

Some ways that you can evaluate prospective lawyers include:

  • Reading online reviews
  • Speaking with your friends, family, and colleagues about any personal injury lawyers they have used
  • Participating in a free consultation

The free consultation process allows you to interact directly with law firms that you are considering. It could be particularly valuable in determining whether a lawyer is a good fit for your truck accident case.

Seek a Lawyer with a Track Record of Success

Any criteria used to evaluate a lawyer may include their record of success. You can seek a lawyer who has:

  • Handled truck accident lawsuits in the past
  • Completed truck accident-related insurance claims in the past
  • Won compensation for clients through truck accident claims and lawsuits

The process of seeking compensation for a truck accident differs from car accidents and motorcycle accidents. A lawyer who is familiar with trying truck accident cases could be one that is a fit for your case.

Contingency-Fee Arrangements

Truck accident lawyers generally offer you a contingency-fee payment arrangement, as the American Bar Association (ABA) explains. This pay structure may be preferable for you, considering the benefits that it can provide. A lawyer who charges through a contingency fee does not ask for any upfront or out-of-pocket payment from you as their client.

Instead, they command a percentage of any winnings that they secure through a settlement or judgment. Two primary benefits of a contingency fee are:

  • You do not have to pay your attorney anything unless they win
  • You do not have to pay out of your own pocket for legal services

You can therefore evaluate truck accident lawyers based on whether they offer a contingency-fee payment arrangement.

Making the Decision to Hire a Lawyer

Truck accident victims can bring a lawsuit or insurance claim on their own. There are several reasons why victims may instead choose to have a lawyer handle their case. A lawyer has experience with truck accident claims and lawsuits.

If you do not have the experience yourself, then handling your case on your own requires you to conduct research into:

  • The legal process
  • Relevant laws and rules
  • Other subjects common to lawsuits and insurance claims

Someone who is recovering from serious injury may find the responsibility of completing an insurance claim or lawsuit to be particularly distressing. The same may go for someone who has lost a loved one in a truck accident. A lawyer can deal with your insurance claim or lawsuit.

What a Lawyer Can Do for You

Clients agree to pay their lawyers a percentage of their winnings because they expect services in return. For most clients, a lawyer can handle the significant majority of what it takes to complete a lawsuit or insurance claim.

One critical service of a lawyer is ensuring that you are not taken advantage of. Your lawyer will defend your rights from insurance companies, attorneys, or any other party that may try to infringe upon your rights. Your lawyer will also calculate the value of your losses, which can include:

  • Injuries with long-term or permanent symptoms
  • Loss of your ability to work
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering, which you may have already experienced and could experience in the future
  • The loss of a loved one, and related costs
  • Damage to a vehicle
  • The cost of medical care
