You’ve been involved in a crash with a semi-truck or another commercial vehicle, it’s critical that you find the right attorney. You need somebody who’s got the experience; not just experience of being an attorney, but of actually doing truck injury cases. The regulations that exist on that are extensive. You need somebody who knows and understands those. You need somebody who deals with that on a regular basis and understands how to deal with the regulations.
These big trucking companies also have a lot of money and are willing to fight their cases. It’s critical in these cases that you get somebody who is willing to go to trial, knows how to go to trial, and knows what to do when they get there. The insurance companies also know if your attorney will go to trial. That greatly affects your settlement value in the case.
