Commercial motor vehicle companies have million-dollar insurance policies.

When you find yourself injured in an accident with a commercial motor vehicle it’s important to realize their insurance policy is likely worth several million dollars. While this means they almost certainly have the money to pay for your damages, this also usually means they have access to their own highly-skilled and experienced lawyers.

These companies have access to strong defense teams.

It’s a bad idea to go up against one of these companies on your own, because you could find yourself facing some of the best defense teams in the country. The defense lawyers these companies hire have a lot of experience defending big companies from valid lawsuits. They have solid systems in place to build a strong defense and do everything in their power to avoid paying for your damages and losses. When seeking legal representation, it’s important to note that not all lawyers are equal in training, experience, and skill in trial.

A trial attorney has extensive training in client advocacy and more experience in the courtroom than the average attorney.

In a situation where you expect to find yourself in a potentially lengthy or difficult legal battle, it’s a good idea to seek out the aid of a trial attorney. Trial attorneys know exactly what evidence to begin gathering from the start to build the strength of your argument in court. While any lawyer should certainly be gathering evidence and constructing arguments on your behalf, the arguments structured by a lawyer who expects to settle the case outside of court may not be fully prepared if the case goes all the way to trial.

If you expect to find yourself in court, it’s a good idea to hire a trial attorney.

Lawyers often go into cases with the expectation that they are going to help their client reach a fair settlement rather than taking the case all the way to court. Trial attorneys are always prepared to go to court for you. A trial attorney will not try to convince you to settle out of court if doing so would not provide you with the best potential outcome. With all of this in mind, it’s easy to see how trial attorneys are fully prepared to take on the defense teams of these large commercial motor vehicle companies.

Trial attorneys work on contingency fees, meaning if they don’t win, you don’t pay.

When hiring a trial attorney, you won’t owe any out-of-pocket fees. If you’re involved in a wreck with a commercial motor vehicle company, seek the legal advice of a trial attorney and give yourself the best chance at fair compensation.

John Sloan:
A commercial motor vehicle usually has an insurance policy backing it up that has millions of dollars of coverage and they hire the best lawyers that are available to them on the defense side. You need someone on your side that is able to go toe to toe with those powerful corporations. You want someone who has been down that road not once, not twice, but dozens of times.
