Do I really need to hire a lawyer to handle a trucking accident case? Won’t the at fault party take care of my expenses?

While the at fault party may say they will take care of your damages, their main job is to pay you as little as possible. They do not want to make large payouts on accident claims and will do everything possible to make sure you do not get what the accident may possibly be worth. In other words, if you have serious injuries, which are likely if you were involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, do not expect the trucking company to pay the amount of compensation your case is likely worth.

You need to hire an experience trucking accident attorney for a number of reasons. Do you know what your trucking case is worth? Do you know what experts need to be hired to investigate your claim? Do you know what type of evidence needs to be collected to pursue your claim? Do you know what parties face liability? An experienced truck accident attorney knows the answers to these questions and will be able to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
