Truck Wreck Lawyer
TRUCK WRECK LAWYER | COMMUNICATION:
How often should your truck wreck lawyer communicate with you about your case?: (1) Lawyers who work with truck wreck clients should routinely update their clients on the progress of their case. The simplest method is to copy the client on all correspondence. This practice assures the client that work is progressing on her case; (2) All incoming client calls should be answered immediately by the truck wreck lawyer. If the lawyer is not available, his assistant should immediately schedule an appointment for a telephone conference. This should occur at the very next opportunity. The injury lawyer’s assistant should inform the client of this appointment before the client leaves the call; (3) Truck wreck lawyers should obtain authority for any settlement offers. The lawyer should obtain specific authority for all counter offers. Some volume TV Injury Lawyers have a practice of settling cases without obtaining specific authority. This should be avoided. When hiring a personal injury lawyer, ask whether they have a communication process.

A CASE ILLUSTRATING MY WORK IN AS A TRUCK WRECK LAWYER
Truck Wreck / Accident involving Tractor Trailer
My client was driving alongside a tractor trailer on I-285 in Dekalb County, Georgia. The truck driver made a lane change and side-swiped my client. The impact caused a wreck which forced her to lose control and strike the median wall. The insurance defense attorneys aggressively defended the case. They argued that the accident was minor. They claimed there was little damage to my client’s car. A personal injury lawyer with no experience in truck accidents may have settled the case for $50,000.00. In fact, this was the insurance company’s offer- and they adamantly refused to offer more. I looked deeper into the case. I sought to uncover the reason for the accident. I applied my knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. The regulations require trucking companies to train their drivers. The FMCSR’s also require trucking companies to make sure their truck drivers do not exceed their hours of service. The truck driver had exceeded his hours of service and had not been trained. During my investigation, I learned that the trucking company knew the regulations but chose to ignore them. The case settled in mediation for $700,000.00.
