Factor 1: Experience with Representing Clients Like You

You’ll want to make sure the lawyers you look at are truck accident lawyers and not just lawyers who say they have a little relevant experience. The ideal kind of lawyer you want is one with experience handling personal injury and truck accident cases like yours.

By making sure your lawyer has this kind of experience, you’ll be confident that the lawyer can understand the legal and insurance-related factors that your case involves. You’ll know you have a lawyer who is especially capable of helping you.

One of the important details a truck accident lawyer will understand is the state-imposed deadline (the statute of limitations) for truck accident lawsuits in Florida, which is generally four years according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). The lawyer will help you understand this law and file a lawsuit before the deadline ends.

Trial Experience Matters for Your Truck Accident Lawyer

A claim that doesn’t settle may need to go to court. In this case, your truck accident lawyer should have experience taking claims to trial. In court, the other party’s lawyer might try to prove you were at fault for the accident or reduce any compensation you are due. However, if your lawyer has significant trial experience, they’ll be able to defend your claim and help prove the other party’s liability for your injuries.

Factor 2: A Long, Strong Track Record

If a lawyer claims to have the kind of experience you want in an attorney, that’s good. But you’ll also want to hear what the lawyer’s previous clients have to say. For example, you can read company reviews or client testimonials online.

Try to get an idea of what the lawyer’s success rate is. This value is measured by the number of claims the lawyer wins for clients, as well as the amount of compensation the lawyer recovers for clients.

Insurance companies want to offer low settlements early in a lawsuit, and many lawyers want to quickly move on to their next clients, so the lawyers may accept these offers. You want a lawyer who will fight for you, so look for a lawyer with a track record of fair and client-centered settlements. You can ask about a lawyer’s success rate, track record, and history of settlements.

Factor 3: Your First Impressions

It’s important to meet with a lawyer before you limit your options too much or decide on a lawyer. Meeting the lawyer will give you an idea of how professional and competent the lawyer is. You may also get an impression of the lawyer’s confidence, which may put you at ease about the lawyer’s capabilities.

Perhaps most importantly, meeting a lawyer before committing to one will give you an idea of whether you can trust the lawyer and their intentions. Also, by establishing trust with the lawyer, you’ll feel much better about committing to them.
