Choosing a Commercial Trucking Accident Attorney
Trucking accident cases differ significantly from ordinary motor vehicle accidents, and victims of these accidents do not often understand all the potential issues. Federal trucking laws apply, video and GPS information may get lost or destroyed, trucker logs may be altered, and top insurance adjusters handle these high-dollar insurance cases. You need a top trucking accident lawyer on your side.
Finding a Truck Accident Injury Attorney
The trucking company, and their insurance carrier, will have a team of attorneys, investigators, and adjusters hard at work within hours of an accident, assembling favorable evidence and defending their side of the case. Victims of trucking accidents are advised to be just as diligent in contacting a trucking accident attorney to explore their rights to compensation and justice. A few considerations when choosing a Denver trucking accident attorney
Competence: Always make sure that a prospective attorney is licensed in the applicable state, and is experienced in trucking accident law. Our attorneys are licensed in Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming.
Fees & Costs: Make sure there is a full understanding of the attorney’s fees, as well as any additional costs that are the responsibility of the client. We do not generally ask for a cost retainer and there is no attorney’s fee until we recover for you.
Procedure: A competent attorney will be able to provide a detailed game plan and a timeline of expected events.
Personal Service: Some work (record-keeping, information gathering, etc.) will be designated to paralegals and assistants, but the core tasks of the case should be handled personally by the attorney, and there should always be accessible communication between client and attorney. Our clients are each represented by two personal injury attorneys and given the cell phone number of our founding partner, Dallas Norton.
The metro Denver personal injury law firm of Western States Law, P.C., offers free consultations, and always takes almost all cases on a contingent fee basis. Although the hub of our personal injury law firm is in Aurora, Colorado, our injury attorneys practice in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming.
