Do I need a truck accident attorney, or can I handle my own claim?

Car Involved in a Truck WreckSimply put, if you were seriously injured or sustained significant losses in a California truck crash caused by another person or company's negligence, you need the representation of an experienced personal injury attorney.  Even if you've successfully handled other car accident claims in the past, the complexity of truck accidents require the right experienced attorney.

Ways That Truck and Car Accident Cases Differ

Truck crash cases aren't like other auto accident claims. Here are a few of the ways these two types of cases differ:

  • Greater injuries and damages in truck crash cases lead to the potential for larger settlements and financial awards. Just because your losses are substantial doesn't mean that the liable party's insurance company or legal team will be eager to compensate you fairly. The right attorney balances out the imbalance of power so you can obtain full financial recovery.
  • Multiple liable parties may mean multiple avenues for compensation. In some cases, the commercial truck driver may not be the only one at fault. Depending on the circumstances of the claim, negligent drivers may share liability with a trucking company, truck owner, trucking repair company, or a parts manufacturer.  An attorney you does not look for the simple and quick settlement can identify liable parties, investigate all potential avenues for compensation and can fight the legal battle to secure the best outcome for you.
  • You're likely to face an aggressive corporate and insurance legal team. Insurance companies and the businesses they insure are focused on protecting their bottom lines. They are not in the business of giving away money.  To that end, they often bring in savvy and experienced attorneys to handle litigation with claimants.  Having a knowledgeable and accomplished attorney of your own helps level the playing field and sends a message to everyone involved that your case is one to take seriously.
