Do more experienced truck accident attorneys charge higher fees compared to less experienced attorneys?
Tom Metier is the President-Elect of the Academy of Truck Accident Attorneys and founder of Metier Law Firm based in Colorado. In this Quick Question, he explains there is no difference in attorney fees when it comes to injury lawyers. This means you can get an experienced attorney with a proven record of success for the same rate as an inexperienced lawyer right out of law school.

Truck accidents fall under the field of personal injury law, and most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. This means that the cost of hiring a lawyer with a high rate of success handling truck accident cases is the same as hiring a personal injury lawyer who has never handled a case like yours before. The benefit of this cost set-up is obvious; there is no reason an injured party should feel financially unable to hire an attorney with the specific skills and experience necessary to give their case the best chance of success.
With this in mind, Metier recommends seeking out an attorney who has specifically developed their practice in regard to truck accident litigation. The laws surrounding these cases can be complex, and fighting against a large trucking company with their own legal and insurance teams can be extremely difficult. The best thing someone can do after being injured in a trucking accident is to hire a truck accident attorney with a good success rate and commitment to their clients’ recovery.
If an attorney does not win their client’s case, the client does not have to pay the attorney for their services. This is referred to as working on a contingency fee basis, and it allows the injured party to focus on healing and recovery rather than worrying about how they are going to pay for an attorney. Additionally, these lawyers almost always offer free consultations, so having your case assessed and getting your questions answered is easy, free, and fast.
Legal fees, medical records, expert consultations, and more are all included in the services offered by truck accident attorneys for which the client will not have to pay any money out of pocket. In fact, the client often does not have to pay anything at all if the attorney is unable to recover compensation for them.

Do experienced truck accident lawyers cost more than other attorneys? We ask Colorado attorney Tom Metier in this AsktheLawyers.com™ Quick Question.
Experienced truck accident lawyers do not cost more than other attorneys. That's a real benefit to you.
We work on a contingent fee basis. You don't pay any fees unless you get recovery, and those percentages are the same for any type of personal injury lawyer, but you still need to hire a trucking specialist because your results will be better.
