Choosing a Truck Accident Lawyer: What to Look For

If you’ve suffered an injury in a truck accident, you’re probably going through a lot of stress and confusion. You know you weren’t to blame, and someone owes you money for your medical bills and other expenses. But you’re not sure how to go about getting that money. Choosing a truck accident lawyer can be stressful, but The Eberst Law Firm is ready to help.

Our firm has the skill and resources it takes to help clients obtain the compensation they deserve for someone else’s negligence. Truck accidents continue to rise in Florida, and people are suffering throughout the state. We have a team of attorneys who know how to handle all of the complexities involved in this kind of case and how to take on huge insurance companies and defeat them.

Here are some tips for finding the best truck accident lawyer for your specific case. If you want a free consultation from The Eberst Law Firm, you can contact us online or call us at 1-888-CALL-JON.

1. Experience Winning High Settlements

The most critical factor in choosing a truck accident lawyer is results. What kind of track record does the firm have in cases like yours?

Getting the results you want will require investigating the accident. Once your attorney determines the cause of the accident, they’ll know who to target with legal action. It could be the truck driver, the trucking company, the manufacturer of a defective part, or another party.

Once your attorney has the facts of the case, they can then demand the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to lowball accident victims, but an effective attorney won’t let that happen. A strong lawyer will know exactly what you deserve and will settle for nothing less.

2. Experience Taking Cases to Trial

The vast majority of truck accident cases never get to a courtroom. The main reason is that the insurance company doesn’t want to go to the expense of a trial.

But there are some instances where an insurer will refuse to offer a fair settlement, and a trial will be necessary. You’ll need an attorney ready to present a compelling argument on your behalf to obtain the maximum compensation you have coming. If that attorney did an excellent job investigating the accident, they’ll have the strong evidence it takes to give you the best possible chance of winning.

3. They Have Good Reviews

Consider paying close attention to online reviews while researching truck accident law firms. Look at what others are saying about the firms on your list to get a good idea of what kind of service you can expect.

One thing you want to look for in the reviews is clients who feel they didn’t receive maximum compensation because their lawyer settled too soon. Several firms are known as “settlement mills.” They want to keep their caseloads as high as possible, so they settle with insurance companies much faster.

This approach often means clients won’t get nearly the money they deserve. As a result, they’ll be on their own when it comes to paying for all of their accident-related expenses. Please don’t let this happen to you. Find an attorney who will work in your best interests – not theirs.

4. The Size of the Firm

There are a lot of advantages to choosing a smaller law firm. Just because a firm spends a lot of money on advertising doesn’t mean it will provide the best representation. Some of the benefits of choosing a smaller firm include the following:

  • You’ll be a top priority – Clients who choose larger firms sometimes get lost in the shuffle or move down the priority list when a more significant case comes along. That won’t happen with The Eberst Law Firm.
  • Personal service – Working with The Eberst Law Firm will ensure your case gets the full attention it deserves. You won’t be “just another client.” We’ll keep you informed through every part of your case and always be here to answer your questions.
  • Availability – Larger firms often can’t go the extra mile, such as being available after hours, and they have too many clients. However, our attorneys can work with your schedule at The Eberst Law Firm.

5. They Have a Clear Fee Structure

You already have enough on your plate. Not only are you recovering from a severe injury, but you’re also worried about the medical bills and other expenses you’ve incurred due to the wreck. For example, you’re losing wages because you can’t work.

The last thing you want to worry about is coming up with the money to pay your truck accident attorney. That won’t be an issue when you turn to The Eberst Law Firm. We work on what’s known as a “contingency basis.” This means that we won’t make any money unless we achieve a positive result on your behalf.

If that happens, we’ll take our fee out of your compensation. This fee will typically be about a third of your settlement or what you receive if the case goes to trial and you win. That means we’ll be genuinely invested in delivering the best representation we can provide.

The contingency process will relieve a lot of your stress. You can focus on your recovery while we focus on getting you every penny you deserve.
