Truck Accident Attorneys

What does a truck accident lawyer do?

Truck accident lawyers are personal injury attorneys who focus on representing people injured in crashes with large commercial vehicles, such as tractor-trailers. Truck accidents tend to be more complex than most other personal injury matters, because:

A truck accident attorney may need to take timely legal action to preserve and obtain evidence, like the truck’s “black box” GPS data or hours of service (HOS) log. These attorneys know how to coordinate multiple insurance policies, retain the right expert witnesses, and build a strong case for the full amount of compensation a victim deserves. These are complex, high-value cases that often take a great deal of time and resources to successfully litigate.

How much does a truck accident lawyer cost?

Like almost all personal injury attorneys, truck accident lawyers typically work on a contingency fee basis, which means there is no fee paid to the attorney until and unless the case is successfully resolved. There is no hourly fee and no up-front cost to hire the lawyer. If your case results in a financial settlement or jury verdict in your favor, the attorney’s fee will be a percentage of the recovery. This percentage is usually about one-third but may be higher or lower depending on the firm, the jurisdiction, and the complexity of the case.

How do I choose the right truck accident lawyer?

Again, truck accidents often give rise to complex, high-stakes cases that require specialized knowledge and experience. It’s important to look for a lawyer with trial experience and a track record of successfully resolving truck accident cases. As with any case, you’re also looking for an attorney who understands the law and the courts in your jurisdiction.

Truck accident lawyers generally offer a free consultation, so if you’ve been involved in a crash with a semi-truck, it pays to talk to a lawyer about your rights and options. An attorney can assess whether you have a viable case and whether it’s something they can handle.
