Q: Are all personal injury lawyers equally skilled at handling truck accident cases?
There are a lot of law firms in Maryland and many personal injury lawyers who want to represent you; however, not all of them are experienced in truck accident claims. Although a lawyer may have experience representing victims of car accidents, handling claims for victims of truck accidents is much different. For this reason, you should learn what’s important when hiring an attorney to handle your personal injury claim against a trucking company, such as:
- Past successes. Many people can talk the talk, but not every lawyer can show you successful results in past trucking accident cases. If you are considering hiring a certain law firm, ask them what kind of results they received in cases similar to yours. A lawyer who has successful results won’t be shy about sharing them with you.
- Trial experience. Some lawyers don’t have experience taking cases to court, and the other side knows which attorneys always settle. It’s not uncommon for insurance companies to base their settlement offer on your lawyer’s experience. This is why it is critical to your case that you choose an attorney who has experience in court and isn’t afraid to pursue your case at trial, if needed.
Hiring the right attorney matters in getting the financial recovery you want and deserve. This is why it is important that the lawyers you are considering provide you with a free consultation so you can get to know them and ask them questions about their experience and past case results.
