Here is a list of the Top 6 Reasons to hire a Truck Accident Lawyer to protect your rights.

1. The unique regulations and rules of the trucking industry.

The rules established by the federal regulatory and state agencies are extremely specific on how trucking companies operate and the expected behavior of their drivers.

Being experienced with these rules and laws is crucial to establishing the most powerful claim possible against all those liable for damages, especially the truck driver and their employer. Unfortunately, not every accident lawyer is well versed in the complexities of the trucking industry regulations. Isaacs & Isaacs professional team of attorneys are deeply knowledgeable with all the regulations that involve truck accident claims putting us in the best possible position to handle your claim.

2. More than one party can be held liable

The driver and the trucking company they work for are typically the first parties held responsible after a truck accident, right? But there may be more parties who are liable for your injuries depending on the details of the accident. You want an experienced truck accident attorney who will meticulously investigate your claim to make certain all those who may be liable are held accountable.

Among others and in addition to the driver and the trucking company, the owner of the truck and trailer, the owner of the freight, the shipping company, the truck maintenance company, and the equipment manufacturer are potentially liable.

3. The insurance company may not offer you enough compensation.

When it comes to a truck accident claim, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interest not yours. Their priority is protecting their bottom line while minimizing any liabilities for the driver or the trucking company they represent. Deflecting liability to avoid compensating you the complete amount of your damage is most likely what they will attempt to do.

If you want to seek the best settlement possible it is crucial you have a truck accident attorney. Only an experienced truck accident attorneys can prove the full extent of your injuries and the damages that arise from them. Economic damages (lost wages, medical bills, etc.) and non-economic damages (pain and suffering, mental anguish, etc.) are included.

4. You need the appropriate legal strategy for your claim.

When pursuing truck accident claim there is no standard blueprint for success. Not all truck accidents are the same in the same way as car accidents being different from truck accidents. Patience, the correct legal skills, and special knowledge is required.

You need a lawyer who will put together a winning strategy for your unique claim, not some one size fits all magic formula. That means hiring a truck accident attorney who is knowledgeable in the specific details of your case and works to build the strongest potential claim on your behalf.

5. A lawyer can handle complex negotiations on your behalf.

A rigorous legal process is part of the time-consuming truck accident claims. There are lots of legal issues to handle, paperwork to complete and many lawyers and insurance agents to speak to. You’re not likely in any condition to handle the complex proceedings if you’ve been recently involved in a truck accident. Focusing on healing and getting back to normal is the best thing you can do.

Your truck accident attorney will handle gathering evidence, all the necessary legal communication, performing legal research, and negotiating a possible settlement, while preparing your case for trial (should that become necessary while you are recovering.) While you recuperate they can answer any questions and keep you informed along the way.

6. Efficiency

Some people may go to a regular lawyer because they think someone in a niche truck accident field may be expensive. But one of the advantages you get with a specialized and experienced lawyer is efficiency. They’ll know how how to go about the discovery process, all federal trucking laws, how to spot negligence in this area, and they’ll do it as soon as possible before the leads turn cold. Any evidence that needs to be collected with speed, they’ll know how to do it. And they’ll also file motions as early as possible so that liable parties don’t get the chance to cover their tracks. On top of this, our firm works on a contingency basis, which means we only get paid if we win your case.
