Another critical part of securing a top settlement is whether a lawyer has a really good track record. Most lawyers have never taken a truck accident case all the way to a jury verdict in a trial. And that’s incredibly important, because the trucking companies and insurance companies, when they’re determining your exposure (or their potential liability) in how much money they want to offer to settle a case, want to know about the sophistication and experience of the lawyers on the other side. The trial of a truck accident case is different from any other personal injury trial. And you want to make sure you’re dealing with a law firm that does have the financial resources to be able to hire the experts that are able to do aggressive discovery, no matter how expensive the discovery might be. That includes downloading black boxes, hiring accident reconstructionists, doing animation to show how this accident unfolded, and why it was preventable. We need to hold these trucking companies accountable, so there’s no trucking company amnesty, where these companies get away with really endangering public safety.
