Special Considerations in Truck Accident Cases

Unlike car accidents, tractor-trailer accidents often involve several different liable parties – each of which may have violated certain laws and regulations that led to the circumstances of your accident. In order to construct the strongest case possible, you will need a truck accident lawyer who is intimately familiar with both state and federal trucking laws, and who has experience winning cases similar to yours.

Questions to Ask Your Truck Accident Injury Lawyer

Most Washington D.C. truck accident lawyers offer free initial consultations. Take advantage of this meeting to ask questions like:

  • How often do you handle truck accident cases similar to my own?
  • How much trial experience do you have?
  • What are some examples of truck accident verdicts and settlements you have obtained in the past?
  • What factors in my truck accident case will work in my favor, and which may work against me?

The lawyer should answer your questions clearly and honestly, in a way that puts you at ease. If they dodge a straight answer or otherwise make you feel uncomfortable, look elsewhere. Reading client testimonials is another good way to determine whether or not a truck accident attorney is trustworthy. Ultimately, however, the most important characteristics to look for in a truck accident lawyer are background and experience.

Background and Experience

The more success a lawyer has had handling truck accident claims in the past, the more prepared they will be to thoroughly investigate your own claim, building a strong case from the ground up that powerfully argues for your right to compensation. Truck accident cases can be notoriously complex; you need an attorney who not only has experience, but also a trusted reputation among their peers.
