How to Pick the Best Lawyer for Your Truck Accident Case

If you were involved in an 18 wheeler accident, your choice of attorney will prove vital to the success of your case.  Your attorney can often make the difference between a full recovery that makes you whole once again and years of unpaid medical bills or uncompensated time off work.

The process of selecting a truck accident lawyer can be stressful.  Advertisements for attorneys abound on the web, billboards, newspapers, and television commercials.  It can be difficult to ascertain an attorney’s true experience and qualifications through advertisements alone.

The first step to selecting the best lawyer for your case involves scheduling a consultation. These consultations can be in person or over the phone. During the consultation, your goal is to essentially interview the attorney to uncover whether they are a good fit for you. The following is a list of factors you should consider in choosing your truck accident attorney:

Experience

Experience is an absolute must and should be among your primary considerations in selecting an attorney.  The field of trucking accidents is complex and differs drastically from car accident law.  You need an attorney who has handled a number of truck accident cases so that they knows how to guide you to a full recovery.

Resources

The law firm you hire will need to have sufficient resources to pursue your truck accident case to the fullest extent.  Consider the size of the firm and the firm’s contacts.  Most small firms will have the resources to dedicate to your case, but some solo practitioners will not.  As your potential firm about its man power and other resources, including investigators or truck accident re-constructionists.

Communication

You should look for an attorney who will listen to your input and questions, update you on the status of your case, and be available when you need them.  Select an attorney who is able to devote time and attention to your case, meeting your individualized needs.  Look for someone who values client communication and understands the needs of clients who experienced injuries in a truck accident.

Avoid Guaranteed Outcomes

Nothing in life is guaranteed and you should avoid any attorneys who promise a certain outcome.  Rather, look for an attorney who promises to pursue your case to the fullest extent and fight for your best outcome, even when the outcome is uncertain.

Consider Financials

Ask your potential lawyer what the fee arrangement will be if you retain their firm.  Many truck accident firms operate on a contingency fee basis.  Ask about the fee and compare among firms.  Do not simply go with the least expensive, however, as this can equate to inexperience.

Find the Perfect Fit

You need a truck accident attorney who truly cares about your case and your recovery. Selecting someone you trust will ensure your case receives the dedication necessary to achieve a full recovery.
