Proving liability in a trucking case is complex and expensive. Lawsuits against commercial truck drivers and trucking companies is not the same as other traffic accident cases. The trucking industry is heavily-regulated by both the federal government and state governments. There is, therefore, more to know and more documents to sift through (often boxes and boxes of documents).
In addition, to win a case generally requires hiring experts to help build the case. These experts are expensive. Our law firm is paid on a contingency basis, meaning we are not paid unless you win. This is important because of the expense of litigation. Our law firm has the resources to hire the best experts available.

Why Does it Matter What Attorney You Hire?
In personal injury and wrongful death cases against trucking companies you need a lawyer with experience. Within months of the accident, you could forfeit your right to certain types of evidence. Your attorney needs to take immediate action to preserve and protect all evidence that could be used to win your case.
As stated above, federal regulations come into play. Your lawyer needs to know these regulations inside out and upside down. It can affect both whether you win your lawsuit against the trucking company and how much money you get if you do win.
