“How Long Have You Served Injured Claimants?” 

You want a law firm with as much experience as possible. That way, they know what to expect when managing your case. They’ll also: 

  • Be familiar with other attorneys in the area 
  • Understand how local and state laws affect your case 
  • Have a network of resources to support your claim 
  • Recognize bad faith insurance practices in action 

You could also ask a lawyer about their previous outcomes—specifically those involving truck accidents. They might even feature previous results and testimonials on their firm’s website. 

“How Much Is My Truck Accident Case Worth?” 

Without reviewing your case’s specifics, a truck accident attorney can’t accurately answer this question. However, they can share insight into what could increase your case’s value. Some of those details include: 

  • Your accident’s severity 
  • Your prognosis and expected recovery time 
  • The cost of your necessary healthcare expenses 
  • Your mental trauma 
  • Your lost time from work 

Other facts of your situation, including whether you used rideshare services, can also influence what you collect.

“What Can I Expect From the Financial Recovery Process?” 

If you’ve never navigated the personal injury compensation recovery process before, you might not know what to expect. On the other hand, your prospective lawyer should be able to share information about: 

  • What happens after you file an insurance claim 
  • How long it’ll take the insurer to process your claim
  • What information you should give the insurer 
  • Whether a recorded statement could benefit you 
  • Whether you’ll need to file a lawsuit 

The more information they give you, the more prepared you’ll be to file your case.

“How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer?” 

As a prospective client, you have the right to know how much it’ll cost to retain a lawyer. So, be sure to ask about filing fees, retainers, hourly rates, and other payment-related information. 

Our law firm works on a contingency-fee basis, so our clients don’t have to worry about those things. You pay nothing upfront or out of pocket when you partner with us. We only receive attorney’s fees if we recover a settlement or court award for you. 

Your first case review is also conducted with no obligation to you. Simply talking to our team and asking questions does not constitute a contractual agreement. It’s merely a chance to explore your options.

“How Long Do I Have to File My Truck Accident Lawsuit?” 

Our law firm resolves many truck accident cases through negotiations with insurance adjusters. The American Bar Association (ABA) notes that this is pretty standard for most injury cases. However, if the insurer refuses to settle or denies liability, we can file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. 

In general, these deadlines apply to your case: 

  • You typically have four years from your collision’s date to file an injury lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) 
  • You generally have two years from the date of your loved one’s passing to file a wrongful death lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)

You can also ask whether any exceptions give you more time to act. Florida Statutes § 95.051 lists some factors that can extend your filing date, including: 

  • The at-fault party left the accident scene without giving their contact information 
  • A mental or physical disability prevented you from filing
  • You were younger than 18 years old when you sustained your injuries
  • The at-fault party gave you misleading information or fled the state 

If any of these factors apply to you, you could share them with your prospective lawyer. Then, after considering this information, they can explain your filing deadline related to your situation. 

“How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Truck Accident Case?” 

You reasonably want compensation as soon as possible. However, each case progresses differently. Your prospective lawyer can explain how the following factors may prolong your case’s resolution: 

  • Whether you reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) 
  • Whether the value of your damages continues to evolve
  • The severity of your accident 
  • How many people were involved in your accident 
  • How much evidence supports your case 

It could take days, weeks, or months to resolve your situation. Ask your prospective lawyer about how they will advance your case. Their answers could give you essential insight into what it’s like to partner with their firm.
