4 Things Your Dallas Truck Accident Attorney Will Handle
There are several things a truck accident lawyer should take care of after taking your case.
Investigating the Accident
An insurance company is going to send their team of investigators to check out an accident, in order to investigate just exactly what happened. Since they are hired by the insurance company, you can understand that they’re mostly looking out for the insurance company’s interests, and not necessarily those injured in the accident.
That is why your Dallas truck accident attorney should also investigate the crash location, so they will not only have a better idea of what happened, but now they will be able to combat any low-ball settlement offers you get.
Creating Your Claim
Your lawyer will handle all communications with the insurance company, taking a stressful situation off your shoulders during such a difficult time.
A good law firm will create your claim using all of the information they collected during their investigation. In this claim, your lawyers will lay it all out for the insurance company, stating your injuries, explaining how the opposing party was negligent and responsible for those injuries, and finally, they’ll request compensation for your losses and injuries.
Negotiating With Other Parties
It is likely that your case will be resolved one of three ways: arbitration, litigation or a settlement. Your lawyer will represent you every step of the way, no matter which avenue it goes down.
Before a lawsuit is formally filed, a financial settlement might be negotiated between your truck accident attorney and the insurance company. It is also quite common for a financial settlement to be negotiated after your lawsuit is filed with the state.
Trial Litigation in Front of a Judge or Jury
If no settlement occurs and the lawsuit continues on, it will eventually become a case in front of a judge or a jury, or possibly both.
All of the information gathered by your lawyer’s investigations, along with all the documentation, evidence and testimony you have offered will be presented to the judge and/or jury. They will hear both sides, deliberate and eventually hand down a verdict, deciding once and for all, who was at fault, and what the amount of compensation you should receive.
