If you’ve been seriously injured in a semi-truck accident, you probably have a lot on your mind, wondering whether you will need long term medical care, whether you will be able to return to work and how you will pay your bills. Finding an experienced truck accident lawyer in the North Charleston area to help you with your claim can help you protect your livelihood.

Before you meet with an attorney, prepare to bring any bills, letters, or other documents related to the accident that you may have so that the attorney can better understand your case. The more information and evidence you provide will help your attorney build a strong case.

What to expect from a North Charleston Injury Attorney

While you may feel anxious about meeting with an attorney to discuss your accident and your injuries, the right attorney will listen to you and not force you into any legal action. During a consultation, the attorney should gather information about your case and then provide an explanation of what your options are as well as what your case could entail.

At The Derrick Law Firm, our attorneys will ask questions about your accident and your injuries. They will explain the law and how it applies to your case. They will also discuss potential damages like your medical bills, property damage, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. You may also ask questions to better understand your legal rights. It is important to ask questions if you have any. 

The Derrick Law Firm will also give you a fair evaluation of your case and describe the strengths and weaknesses that they see. To give a fair evaluation, it is important for you to:

  • Be honest and open: A lawyer cannot be successful or effective if they do not have truthful information regarding your accident. Be sure to give all of the details. By hiding details, your attorney cannot prepare for any risks associated with your case.
  • Bring all related documents: Be sure to bring accident reports, medical bills, letters or notes related to your accident for the attorney to review.
