When you really need to have a good lawyer on your side, wasting time on lawyers and law firms that don’t provide the services you require could be a costly mistake both for your health and your wallet. With personal injury cases, like trucking accidents, the costs could be even higher financially and physically. Therefore, it is extremely important to enlist the help of a firm that has quality experience in personal inquiry law.
Below, please find a few tips on how to find a reputable lawyer who can help you through the legal aftereffects of a major car crash:
Ask for recommendations: Over 37,000 people experience fatal injuries stemming from car crashes each year in the U.S., about 98% of all semi truck accidents result in at least one fatality, and within the past 20 years the number of trucking accidents has increased by about 20%. All of these statistics mean that you likely know many people who have dealt with a car accident before and have already gone through the process of finding a lawyer — and the majority of these people will be more than happy to give you some advice on choosing a personal injury lawyer.
Experience is another thing that you really need to pay attention to, and not just in terms of how many years a personal injury attorney has been practicing or how many cases he/she has won. It’s important to look at specific details, like if a lawyer has experience dealing with crashes similar to yours, and if he/she has experience with car accident cases in your state. Traffic laws and personal injury laws vary from state to state, so it’s imperative that you find a lawyer who is familiar with the legislation in your state.
Last but not least, don’t be afraid to contact any personal injury lawyers or law firms and ask for a meeting face-to-face. Car accident cases can be very sensitive — especially if a fatality occurred — so it’s important that you feel comfortable with a lawyer before getting started.
