You Need an Experienced Attorney: Do You REALLY Think You Can Handle This Yourself?

You Need an Experienced Attorney: Do You REALLY Think You Can Handle This Yourself?

It’s remotely conceivable. But let us ask you this. Would you play professional football without the proper training and experience; much less the physical capability? Of course, you wouldn’t. You wouldn’t last past the opening kickoff.

A non-attorney doesn’t have the accumulated – and vital – knowledge or experience to effectively investigate a complicated big rig accident, or negotiate a fair settlement with insurance companies, or successfully represent him or herself in court. Litigating an 18 wheeler accident-related injury cases is extremely complex. And attorneys who don’t have a deep background in personal injury or commercial truck accident cases don’t have any better chance than you of winning reasonable compensation. So why would you even entertain such a critical, foolish idea: especially when tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake?

Under-representation in personal injury commercial accidents is like asking to get creamed by your opponents. And they’ll be tickled to oblige you. The laws and procedures involved are so complex, and the playing field is clearly tilted in the favor of the trucking companies, their insurance providers and attorneys. Your opponents have deep pockets and years of experience winning these exact kinds of cases you now consider.

Successful litigation (or settlement negotiation) in a truck-related personal injury lawsuit demands that the representing lawyer have a very thorough knowledge of civil procedure and an ability to devise the perfect strategy – based on the evidence – to battle the defendants, their insurance companies and adjusters, as well as their crackerjack defense lawyers. Legal novices don’t have any of that. And rookie-lawyers don’t have enough. So if you do it either of those ways, you’ll feel like Rodney Dangerfield: you’ll, “get no respect.” And without respect, you don’t get paid. This is why an experienced and highly, respected Texas big rig accident injury attorney who has spent years taking on the insurance companies and their lawyers – like our Law Firm – and beaten them, is a powerful weapon in your fight for fair accident injury compensation.

And if you’re thinking about taking up a relative or friend who is a lawyer’s offer to represent you, stop a minute and consider this. Even though he or she might be looking out for your best interests and pledges to fight hard for your rights in a big truck accident case, unless this person is an experienced personal injury lawyer with demonstrated skill in beating trucking companies and their insurance carriers, your attorney friend’s good intentions might be more akin to taking a knife to a gunfight.

Your friend-relative lawyer might have a difficult time emotionally detaching him or herself from issues surrounding your case simply because of that personal investment. Big-rig injury law is quite intense and extremely contentious. Your attorney must be pragmatic, focus solely on the facts of a case at all times and be very cool under in order to succeed for you. What happens if that friend or relative lawyer doesn’t win or accepts a less-than-fair settlement because he knows how badly you need the money now? How will you feel about your friend or relative then: and for how long? You will be very wise to keep your family members and friends out of your legal business when deciding who will represent your big rig injury liability lawsuit most effectively. But by all means, welcome their support during this trying time in your life.
