Hiring the best California truck accident lawyer to work on your case can be one of the most valuable decisions you make after an accident. Crashes with big rigs are particularly devastating, and only an attorney with deep experience in this area can help you receive the highest recovery and get your life back on track.
Unfortunately, a layperson usually does not have the knowledge or resources to compete with trucking industry law firms. Law firms that represent trucking companies have deep pockets and are skilled in finding and exploiting every weakness of an injured person’s case. That’s where having an expert attorney of your own comes in.
Here in California, trucking accident lawyers who know applicable laws inside and out can deliver the best result in a bad accident case. Here are a few of the strategies we use:
- Identify every potential person, organization, or company who might have played a part in causing your injury. This is one of the most important steps in these cases, and it can affect your monetary recovery substantially.
- Locate and evaluate every piece of evidence that can prove your case. Although trucking cases are more complex than standard passenger car wrecks, there is much more evidence available—if you know where to look.
- Determine who caused the crash. In truck accident cases, this can be complicated. However, attorneys experienced in federal and California law that govern the trucking industry can be invaluable in making this determination.
- Present your case in the most favorable light at settlement negotiations and trial. Because experienced California trucking accident attorneys know the law and facts, they are best suited to make your case to third parties like claims agents, other lawyers, and judges.
