Experience Handling Truck Accident Cases

Personal injury lawyers handle many different types of accident cases. Since truck accidents differ significantly from car accidents, you want to look for a lawyer who has extensive experience in handling truck accident cases specifically.

One thing that makes truck accidents unique is that, because of the massive size of semis and tractor-trailers, the injuries victims sustain in truck accidents are often catastrophic or sometimes even fatal.

Another factor that differentiates truck accidents from other motor vehicle accidents is the number of parties potentially involved, such as:

  • Trucking companies
  • Truck drivers
  • Mechanics
  • Parts manufacturers
  • Insurers

Judd Shaw Injury Law has many years of experience negotiating settlements with trucking companies and their insurers. Our law firm has a thorough understanding of trucking regulations, industry standards, and liability issues. When we take on a new truck accident case, we put our experience to work for our clients.

Track Record of Success

A personal injury lawyer may have handled truck accident cases before, but was he or she successful? Most lawyers track their ongoing success rate, so don’t be afraid to ask a lawyer about his or her proven track record during your initial consultation.

Lawyers’ success rates can be measured by how many truck accident claims they have won for their clients and the amount of compensation they have helped their clients receive for their truck accident injuries.

Judd Shaw Injury Law is glad to show prospective clients evidence of past truck accident settlements and verdicts so that they can gauge our ability to secure favorable outcomes for them. You can read about some of our past successful outcomes here on our website.

By showing you our history of successful case outcomes, we hope to instill confidence in you that we will handle your truck injury case with competence and effectiveness.

Available Resources

Truck accident cases often require extensive litigation, expert testimony, and litigation support. Choose a law firm that has the resources and support staff needed to thoroughly investigate your accident, gather evidence, and build a compelling case.

Judd Shaw Injury Law has established relationships with experts in various fields, including:

  • Accident reconstructionists:These experts document and examine evidence from the truck accident scene to reconstruct how the incident occurred. The evidence presented by accident reconstructionists is often used to establish truck driver negligence.
  • Medical professionals: We have a network of medical professionals who can assess your injuries and offer insight into how your injuries have affected your daily life. They can also offer information about the long-term effects of your injuries and the cost of future medical expenses.
  • Economists: Economic experts can ensure that the worth of your truck accident claim is assessed accurately. They will take into consideration property damage, lost income, loss of future earning potential, and other monetary losses.

Communication Style

Effective communication is important to the success of any relationship – including the attorney-client relationship. You want a truck accident lawyer who can explain complex legal concepts in a clear and understandable manner.

Worrying about the status of your truck accident case can make it difficult to focus on your recovery, but retaining a lawyer who keeps you informed on the progress of your claim gives you the peace of mind needed to heal from your injuries.

Judd Shaw is a lawyer who understands the importance of listening attentively to clients. Being unable to speak comfortably with your truck accident attorney can make you feel that your concerns are not being properly addressed.

Every attorney at our law firm values honest, open, and regular communication with our clients. We are always available to address your questions and concerns. When we take on your case, Judd Shaw Injury Law will also provide you with case updates through phone calls, texts, emails, or whatever means of communication is most convenient for you.

Negotiation Skills

An estimated 95 percent of all personal injury lawsuits end in pre-trial settlements. Since most truck accident claims are settled through negotiations, it is important to hire a personal injury lawyer who is a skilled negotiator. An attorney who is good at negotiating will present the facts, use tactics and strategies, and present a strong argument for why his or her client is entitled to the damages being demanded.

When you hire Judd Shaw Injury Law to represent you after a truck accident, you can be confident that you have a skilled negotiator on your side. We do not back down until we secure a fair settlement for our clients. You can read about some of our case results here.

Our legal team understands that every truck accident case is unique and a one-size-fits-all approach rarely yields the best results. Rather, while negotiating with the other party, we tailor solutions that meet our client’s individual needs.

Trial Experience

While the majority of cases are settled out-of-court through negotiations, you should select a truck accident lawyer with trial experience – in case litigation becomes necessary.

In the courtroom, the defendant’s lawyers may try to prove that you were to blame for the accident. It is important to have a truck accident attorney on your side who is prepared to defend you against such claims.

Judd Shaw is an experienced courtroom lawyer. You can be sure that he, as well as the rest of our truck accident attorneys, is prepared to advocate aggressively for your rights and best interests at trial. We know how to effectively navigate the complexities of the legal process and prove the truck driver and trucking company are liable for your injuries.

Contingency Fees

Before signing any paperwork to secure a personal injury lawyer, be sure to ask about legal fees. The general standard in personal injury lawsuits, including truck accident claims, is that you do not pay your lawyer until your case has been successfully resolved. Your lawyer earns a contingency fee or a percentage of your settlement or verdict award.

Generally, this works in your favor because you will not need to pay anything upfront. If a lawyer who works on contingency takes on your case, it is a good indication that he or she thinks your claim will be successful.

Judd Shaw Injury Law accepts truck accident cases on a contingency fee basis, and we offer our clients our No Fee Guarantee. Our law firm is open and honest about our fees and will be glad to answer any questions you have before hiring us as your lawyers.
