There’s an old saying “there is no substitute for experience”. That is true in many endeavors but certainly true with respect to maximizing compensation from a commercial vehicle accident.
Everyone knows that big rigs or tractor-trailers operate differently than passenger cars. Not only are tractor-trailers much larger and heavier but they also operate with different systems such as air brakes.
Not only are the vehicles different, but also the rules and regulations that apply to professional drivers are much more strict than those faced by everyday drivers. It is imperative that the attorney you select to help you after your truck accident be proficient in the rules and regulations that apply to trucking companies and truck drivers and have substantial hands-on experience in litigating truck accident claims.
Everyday we see advertisements on television and postings on the Internet for lawyers seeking truck accident victims and claiming vast experience in the area.
With that in mind we have formulated some questions that potential truck accident victims can ask a lawyer to help them determine whether this is the right person for their case.
- When was the last verdict you received in a truck accident case?
- How much was that verdict?
- How many multi-million dollar truck accident cases have you handled?
- How many truck accident cases do you currently have open?
- Who will I actually talk with if I hire you?
- Who all will actually do work on my case?
- How many current cases do you have open?
Each of these questions is an important indicator on whether or not this is the right person for your case. If you asked these questions and cannot get a direct and straightforward answer, I would suggest that you might consider interviewing other firms.
Trucking cases require special experience and finding the best truck accident attorney for your case may require you to speak with several different law firms. By asking the questions set forth above you can get a very clear and quick understanding of the actual experience of the attorney you are considering.
