What Experience do You Have in Truck Accidents?
Truck accidents are very different from car accidents. There are more parties at play. There is often a much higher level of risk and injury involved.
Because of this and the high-powered attorneys that are behind many of these cases, we cannot stress enough the importance of hiring an experienced truck accident attorney. Ask the law firm what experience they have.
You also want to know what type of experience they have had in obtaining compensation for clients. Just having experience with truck accidents is not enough. You want to know they are proven attorneys.

How Many Times Has the Law Firm Gone to Trial for Truck Accidents?
If they tell you that they do not go to trial and that they settle all of their cases, be a bit leery of this. Trucking companies are notorious for being difficult to settle with, and that often means pursuing losses in a court of law. You want an attorney that can go to court and that has experience doing so if it becomes necessary.
Find out the following:
- When do they go to court?
- What type of results they have had in a court of law?
- What is their experience in reaching a positive outcome with a jury trial?
The goal is always to settle a case out of court, but you want an attorney aggressive enough to pursue legal action in court when needed.

What Type of Legal Defense Strategies do They Use in Truck Accident Cases?
Truck accidents are not always simple to resolve. There are many situations where the accident attorney will need to have a strong legal defense to use to help you obtain compensation. Some of the ways that these attorneys can do this may include:
- Remaining up to date on commercial truck driving laws
- Fighting for driver medical records or accident reports to prove reckless behavior
- Using technology to recreate accidents
- Understanding complex truck laws fully
- Having resources available to help prove losses, such as doctors and nurses who can offer expert statements
What type of legal strategy do they expect to use in your case? After an initial consultation, they should be able to give you some idea of what to expect in this way, though they will likely need to do more research to provide a comprehensive example.

What Type of Losses do You Have?
Ask the law firm to provide you with clear guidance on this as well. Specifically, you want to see what they recommend that you seek compensation for. Are they thorough in providing you with insight into your legal rights to compensation?
Often, you want an attorney who is dedicated and aggressive and that is going to go after all of the losses you have. This may include:
- Medical bills
- Lost time and benefits at work
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Complex medical care needs
- Loss of ability to earn a living
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional distress
Look for a qualified attorney who is capable and willing to prove these and other losses you have. You should not have to settle for a claim that is not accurate and comprehensive enough.

Money for You
How Will the Law Firm Gather Evidence for Your Case?
Some truck accident law firms may not be aggressive in pursuing financial losses because they do not put the time and effort into truly understanding what occurred. The only way to do that is to gather evidence. For example, is the law firm willing to do the following if it would help in your case?
- Talk to witnesses
- Discuss your case with the police department and the responding officer
- Gather evidence from cameras in the area
- Seek out medical experts who can attest to the injuries you have and their severity
- Gather evidence from the truck driver and trucking company
- Use accident recreation strategies to help with truly understanding what occurred
The true level of gathering evidence is understanding all of these losses. If the truck accident firm will only use the police report, stating that is enough, they may be leaving money on the table.
