When the immediate chaos that followed your truck accident has settled, you need to find legal representation. The trucking companies already have their team hard at work investigating the crash, and in some cases, hiding evidence that could prove the driver they represent is guilty of causing the collision. The faster you get someone on your side in the case, the better.
Do Not Trust the Insurance Adjuster
The insurance adjuster will claim to be on your side. She will pretend to have your best interest in mind. This is a false display of comfort. The sole job of an insurance adjuster is to find ways to reduce how much she has to pay in a settlement. With a lawyer on your side, you get honest representation from someone working with your family’s future in mind.
Finding the Right Bucks County Truck Accident Lawyer for You
Finding the right lawyer is not as easy as you might think. Here are three key things to look for when searching for someone to represent you after a Bucks County truck accident.
- Experience with truck accidents – Truck accidents are very different from auto accidents. You need someone who knows how trucking company insurance adjusters work and who understands the details that go in to these unique types of cases. Ask the lawyer you’re considering for case results and references of types of truck accident claims they have worked on in the past.
- Regular updates – The injuries you sustained go beyond the physical damage to your body. You are most likely emotionally traumatized and shaken up by the accident. When you hand off something as important as your case to a lawyer, you want to remain in the loop on what’s happening. Not having updates could make the emotions and panic more difficult to bear. Look for someone who is accessible and will provide you with regular updates throughout your claim.
- Direct contact with your lawyer – As shocking as it is, many lawyers talk to you at your initial consultation and then hand your case off to a less skilled employee. You don’t deserve that. Your case is more than just another form to fill out. Choose a lawyer who respects that—an attorney who will work directly with you from start to finish.
It is not enough to hire just any lawyer to represent your case. You need the right lawyer on your side to work with you and follow through on every detail that impacts your case.
