Reasons To Hire a Houston Truck Accident Lawyer With Trial Experience

Trucking accident claims have unique issues that are not involved in other car accident cases. Reasons to hire an experienced truck accident lawyer include:

Preserve Key Evidence

Trucking companies and their insurance providers aggressively defend truck accident claims. Therefore, you need an attorney with the resources and experience to mount an immediate investigation to preserve evidence. You have the burden of proving your case. If evidence disappears or is destroyed, proving liability can be much more difficult.

For example, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require trucking companies to hold critical evidence for a limited time. An experienced truck accident attorney knows this and will move quickly to preserve this evidence.

Identify Damages

The economic and non-economic damages in a truck accident case can be much higher than in other cases. Truck crashes result in catastrophic injuries. You may have past and future damages in your case.

Estimating future damages for permanent impairments can be challenging. A truck accident lawyer with trial experience works with expert witnesses in numerous fields, including medical specialists, vocational experts, financial professionals, and others. These experts are required to provide opinions and proof of the value of future damages.

Multiple Parties May Be Involved

Truck accidents often involve multiple vehicles. More than one driver could have contributed to the cause of the crash. Additionally, loaders, shippers, maintenance and repair facilities, and other third parties could have contributed to the cause of the truck crash.

Sorting out liability in a truck accident claim can be daunting. An experienced attorney understands how to determine liability when multiple parties are involved.

Deciding Whether To Accept a Settlement Offer

The insurance company and/or trucking company may make a settlement offer. A truck accident lawyer with trial experience can evaluate the offer effectively. They understand the risks of going to trial versus accepting a settlement offer. The attorney bases their decision on the facts of the case, the evidence proving liability, and the probability of winning at trial.
