After a trucking accident in which a victim sustains seriously bodily injury, the first thing that must be done once they’re stabilized, medically, is to consult with an experienced truck accident lawyer. A Personal Injury lawyer with years of trucking accident experience will be able to determine if injuries sustained by a victim entitle them to recover damages. This process can seem confusing in a time of pain and suffering, and it’s important that the chosen lawyer has seen hundreds of previous trucking accidents to verdict successfully. While some lawyers claim they can handle a case as large as that of a truck accident, they’ve never actually done so.
Furthermore, when it comes to a Personal Injury case, clients frequently hear terms they’re unfamiliar with in relation to their claim. The best thing to do when unsure what something means in regard to the specifics of a case, is ask! An experienced lawyer won’t have a problem explaining legal terms in a way a client can better understand. One of these unfamiliar terms for example, is the “legalese” that comes up when lawyers pursue a trucking accident case: Respondeat Superior.
For Personal Injury lawyers, Board Certification is a mark of excellence in a professional career. Patients would never trust a doctor who lacks Board Certification with their care. The same should be said for legal representation. Victims should turn to Board Certified lawyers when it comes to who they trust with their livelihood post-accident. The problem is, many people aren’t aware that lawyers can even be Board Certified.
This lack of publicly available knowledge is unfathomable to the country’s top lawyers, specifically those who practice Personal Injury Law, because this very important distinction is what separates “paper pushers” from the true “case winners”, the successful accident lawyers. Lack of a Board Certification distinction can be what’s standing between clients and the maximum amount of financial compensation they deserve.
Whiplash: The name doesn’t acutely convey at first glance what this painful and life-altering injury is actually hiding behind. When a victim suffers a car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident to name a few, whiplash is one of the most common but potentially most severe injuries. Yet, it is often dismissed as minor or infrequent while the reality of its longterm pain is overlooked or ignored altogether.
