A personal injury attorney is much like a doctor; there are generalists and specialists. While all attorneys who handle personal injury claims should be knowledgeable of the basic process of filing and settling a claim, not all of them will have experience with truck accident claims

Truck accident claims often involve more severe injuries and it may be more difficult to hold parties liable, which is why you should hire an attorney who focuses on truck accidents, rather than general personal injury. The following are some questions to ask a Georgia personal injury attorney before you start your claim: 

  • How much of your practice is dedicated to truck accident claims?
  • Can you show me a claim you settled that is similar to mine?
  • Are there any notable truck accident claims you have settled?
  • What are the unique challenges and advantages you see in my truck accident claim? and
  • What percentage of your claims do you take to court? 

If an attorney cannot provide answers to these basic questions, then he or she may not be as experienced with truck accident claims as you might believe. 

It’s important to have confidence in your legal team when going up against a trucking company or truck manufacturer if they are the liable party in your truck accident claim. When you need help getting through the truck accident claim process, make sure your attorney is up to the challenge.  

Give Your Truck Accident Claim Every Advantage Possible 

The settlement of your truck accident claim is an important matter for your future. Truck accidents can result in serious injury that can end in permanent disability or death, drastically changing your future plans. By seeking a fair truck accident settlement with the help of a Georgia personal injury attorney, you can help secure your family’s financial security.
