|How do I select the best lawyer for my truck accident claim?|
I met with a gentleman earlier this week, from Aiken, South Carolina, who had been involved in a bad truck wreck on Interstate 20. He asked me the question, “What do I look for when choosing a truck wreck attorney?” I’ll share with you what I shared with that gentleman.
I told that gentleman that he needed to meet with the attorney himself, face to face, and ask the attorney questions. Ask that attorney what his experience with tractor trailer cases is. Are personal injury cases, automobile wrecks, and tractor trailer accidents a core focus of that attorney’s practice? Is that attorney a trial lawyer? Does he take cases to trial? Trial lawyers get better results for their clients if they’re continually trying cases. Does the attorney have experience with the federal rules and regulations governing truck drivers? Does that attorney have the resources to hire accident reconstruction experts and engineers? Does that attorney conduct focus groups of cases going to trial? Focus groups are important to help prepare the case for a successful trial.
I also explained to the gentleman that it’s important to do online research. Get online and see what past clients say about that attorney. What do the clients say about the professionalism and results that the client receive? Look at Google reviews, Avvo reviews, Facebook reviews. Also look at lawyer-to-lawyer recommendations. Are lawyers rating the truck wreck attorney highly? Are lawyers on sites such as Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell, and 100 High Stakes Litigators giving the potential attorney high ratings?
