Yes, if you have been injured in a truck accident then you likely need an attorney to represent you. Your time to file a truck accident case is limited by law and your recovery is important to your future. Accordingly, you want to have every advantage when it comes to negotiating a truck accident settlement or having your case decided in court.
How a Lawyer Can Help
Your attorney can:
- Complete a full investigation. This will help you get the evidence that you need to support your claim and identify the right defendants.
- Negotiate with insurance companies. The insurance companies have skilled negotiators working to limit your recovery. You deserve to have a skilled negotiator working to get you a fair recovery.
- Make sure that all deadlines are met. The statute of limitations creates a deadline by which a complaint must be filed in state court. If you miss this deadline, then your case may be dismissed and you will not recover damages. Once a case is filed, other deadlines also apply.
- Advocate for your full recovery in court. An experienced truck accident lawyer can represent your interests in court and help you get the legal recovery you deserve if a settlement is unattainable.
You do not have to worry about the cost of hiring a lawyer. Our experienced truck accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. That means that we are paid a percentage of your ultimate recovery and not an hourly fee. If you don’t recover anything, then we don’t get paid.
