The Role of Your Attorney

The insurers of the parties responsible for your accident are likely to do all they can to assign you a high percentage of fault and offer you a quick, low settlement in order to save money for their shareholders. You should not accept any such offer without consulting a lawyer. Your attorney may work to prove the at-fault parties were primarily responsible for your damages by:

  • Thoroughly investigating the accident to prove the liability of the defendants
  • Calling in an accident reconstructionist if necessary
  • Obtaining important data from the truck’s “black box” recorder before it’s erased by the trucking company
  • Consulting with your doctors to establish your present and future medical needs and expenses, as well as your total lost income and diminished earning capacity, all of which are the responsibility of the liable parties.
  • Presenting your medical evidence convincingly and calling in expert medical witnesses if necessary
  • Interviewing any witnesses to the crash
  • Obtaining video footage of the wreck from any nearby security or red-light cameras
  • Negotiating with insurers
  • Taking your case to trial and fighting for you in court if necessary.
