An Experienced Attorney is Your Only Reliable Weapon against Well-Funded Defendants
Would you try out for the 12th man kickoff squad without the proper training and experience; much less the physical capability? Of course not; you’d be carried off the field after the first workout.
A non-attorney doesn’t have the necessary knowledge or experience to effectively investigate a complicated big rig accident, or negotiate a fair settlement with insurance companies, or successfully litigate their case in court. Winning a big rig accident-related injury case or successfully winning an insurance claim against such a defendant is extremely complex. And attorneys who don’t have a deep background in personal injury or commercial truck accident cases don’t have any better chance than you of winning any sort of compensation; much less reasonable. So why would you even entertain such a foolish idea, especially when tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars are on the table?
Under-representation in personal injury commercial trucking accidents is like asking to get creamed by your opponents. And they’ll be more than happy to accommodate you. The laws and procedures involved are so complex, and the playing field is so clearly tilted in the favor of the trucking companies, their insurance providers, and attorneys. Your opponents have deep pockets and years of experience winning these kinds of cases.
Successful litigation in a truck-related personal injury lawsuit demands that the representing lawyer have a very thorough knowledge of civil procedure and an ability to devise the perfect strategy, based on the evidence, to battle the defendants, their insurance companies and defense lawyers. Legal novices don’t have any of that. And legal rookies don’t’ have enough. So if you do it this way, you’ll feel like Rodney Dangerfield when he said: “I don’t get any respect.” And without respect, you won’t get paid. It’s that simple. This is why an experienced and highly, respected big rig wreck lawyer who has spent years taking on the insurance companies and their lawyers and beaten them, is a powerful weapon in your fight for fair accident injury compensation.
And if you’re thinking about taking up the offer of a relative or friend who is a lawyer to represent you, you might want to seriously reconsider that plan. For even though he or she might be looking out for your best interests to fight hard for your rights in a big rig accident case, unless this person is an experienced personal injury lawyer with experience beating trucking companies and their insurance companies, your attorney’s good intentions with little experience to back them up is akin to taking a knife to a gunfight.
Often, your personal friend/lawyer might have difficulty emotionally detaching him or herself from issues surrounding your case because of that personal association. Personal injury law is quite intense and extremely contentious. Your attorney must be pragmatic, focus solely on the facts of a case, and be very cool under fire in order to succeed for you. What happens if that friend or relative attorney doesn’t win the case, or accepts a less-than-fair settlement because he knows how badly you need the money now? How will you feel about your friend or relative then? You will be very wise to keep your family members and friends out of your legal business when deciding who will represent your big rig injury liability lawsuit most effectively.
