Why is Experience So Important When Hiring a Big Rig Accident Attorney

Why is Experience So Important When Hiring a Big Rig Accident Attorney

Car accidents are the most prevalent sort of personal injury litigation. Most personal injury lawyers who have been practicing for any length of time will be familiar with these types of claims. When it comes to big rig incidents, this is not the case. While they are less common than vehicle accidents, they are typically far more dangerous due to the sheer size and weight of a big rig compared to a typical car.

If you've been in an accident with a big rig, there are a few things you should remember. First and foremost, you must pick an attorney who has knowledge in more than just basic personal injury law — they must have experience especially in trucking accidents. Read on to find out why this is the case, and then call The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker for a free legal consultation at 800-333-0000.

Essential instincts are brought about by experience

A competent personal injury attorney has several responsibilities, but one of the most crucial is to anticipate what will happen next. They must be proactive, able to predict the opposing side's anticipated next move, and know where to get the proof they require tomorrow, now. This is referred to be instinct, but it is not mystical; it is learned through experience.

You will be represented by a skilled attorney who will fight for you

In the end, most personal injury lawsuits are complicated and nasty. It is uncommon for the at-fault party to accept their mistake and simply send a cheque to compensate any losses. Instead, both parties must negotiate and, if they are unable to reach an agreement, proceed to court. Only a seasoned attorney will have the confidence to actively bargain and fight for your case.

The manner vehicle and truck injury accidents should be handled is different

While automobiles and large trucks use the same roads and must all obey the same laws and regulations, truck injury cases are more complicated. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration imposes extra requirements on big trucks. Many regulations are similar, but trucking rules regulate how long a truck driver may be on the road, how often they must stop, and other factors.

Frequently, more than one side is to blame

It is normal for a victim to believe that the person who drove the vehicle would be sued. This isn't always the case, however. It's possible that their job compelled them to drive longer than the law permitted. It's possible that a truck repair shop did a terrible job. It's possible that the truck's maker or some of its components designed defective equipment. It's possible that the goods were loaded incorrectly.

Any of these factors might have contributed to or caused a truck accident. You'll need an attorney who understands how to consider all options. The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker is where you'll find it. For a free legal consultation, call our offices at 800-333-0000 right now.
