Why you need a truck accident attorney
You may receive a call from the insurance company or the trucking company shortly after the accident offering you a settlement, which may make you think that you don’t need to work with an attorney. After all, the settlement seems generous enough, and it seems like it will cover your medical care.
The reality is that the insurance companies and trucking companies are looking to pay you as little as possible. If they are offering you any money at all, you can be sure that it is much less than what they feel they may have to pay you if the case goes to court.
By working with one of the Springhill truck accident attorneys from Carlson, Meissner, Hart and Hayslett, you will almost certainly get a bigger settlement. We are so sure of it that we only charge a percentage of the increased settlement we earn for you.
Our experienced legal team will comb through every detail of your case to find evidence of fault on the part of the driver or the truck company. We will call on forensic specialists to reconstruct the scene of the accident to show fault. We will work with medical experts who can testify about the long-term impact caused by your injuries, such as how they will affect your ability to work, to care for your family, or to enjoy life as you once did.
We will work tirelessly and call on every tool in our arsenal to create the strongest case on your behalf to maximize the settlement you receive. Our goal is to get justice for the injuries you suffered while also protecting your future.
