Large trucks cause thousands of accidents each year. Injured victims or their loved ones can hold negligent drivers or their employers liable for any injuries. Choosing the right lawyer to champion your case is one of the most important decisions you will make. How can you make this critical decision? What are the top qualities to look for in a truck accident lawyer in Columbus?
Experience Handling Truck Accident Cases
Just as you would not go to a doctor who had never had a patient with your condition before, you should expect the lawyer who handles your truck accident case to have extensive experience handling truck accident cases.
Do not be afraid to ask prospective lawyers about their experience. In addition to finding out about experience, ask how those cases turned out. It is great if your prospective attorney has experience with truck accident cases; it is not great if they have never won any of those cases.
Accident Reconstruction Knowledge
The lawyer who handles your truck accident case might have to work with accident reconstruction experts. It will help your case if your attorney has relationships with experts in the field.
If your prospective attorney does not have long-standing relationships with local experts, make sure they have had experience working with them at the very least.
Familiarity with Large Trucking Companies
In many cases, the defendant in your case will be the trucking company, rather than the driver. Truck accident cases require a familiarity with how a large trucking company operates and the tricks it might play to avoid liability.
Get an attorney who has years of experience studying truck accident law and who has successfully fought numerous trucking companies.
Not Afraid to Take On Large Insurance Companies
Accidents involving trucks often result in serious injuries and high dollar claims. With so much at stake, insurance companies will likely act aggressively, in an attempt to intimidate a lawyer to accept a low settlement for his client.
You need a lawyer who is unafraid of the tactics insurance companies may use when handling these serious cases. You need an attorney who will fight for you and ensure the insurance company gives you what you deserve.
Integrity and Openness
When you have been in an accident involving a truck, you need to be able to trust that your lawyer will fight for the best possible result in your case. You need a lawyer who will be honest with you about your case.
Be sure your prospective attorney has no prior ethics violations that could jeopardize your case.
