When you hire a lawyer after an accident involving a semi-truck or any commercial truck, you don’t pay any money up front. Your case evaluation is free, and your attorney will work on what is called a contingency fee.
A contingency fee means that your attorney and their legal staff is paid a certain percentage – typically one-third – of any damages you are awarded in the final settlement. If you don’t win any damages, you do not owe any attorney fees.
This gives your attorney a strong incentive to not only win your case, but get the highest settlement possible. In semi-truck accident cases, this can mean outwaiting the trucking company, a tactic attorney Chris Davis and the legal team at Davis Law Group, P.S., have plenty of experience with.
Wondering how you’ll pull your life back together after a serious accident involving a semi-truck? Hiring an experienced trucking lawyer is a smart first step, and with a contingency fee agreement, there’s no stress for you worrying about how you’ll pay for your bills.
These accidents are serious. They often take years to settle and require hundreds of hours of work for your attorney and their legal staff. Having a contingency fee agreement eliminates the financial risk of an hourly rate, a situation in which you could lose your case and still owe thousands of dollars in attorney fees.
Yes, but you’d be leaving potentially millions of dollars on the table in the case of a serious accident. Trucking companies and their lawyers often offer victims quick settlements that briefly provide money and security for those affected. Unfortunately, what the trucking company offers you right after an accident is not enough to cover the full amount of your damages. If you take any money from a trucking company, you’ve likely forfeited your right to win additional compensation down the line.
Hiring the right semi-truck accident lawyer is proven to pay off in the long run. While your case may take longer to settle, an attorney that knows how to deal with trucking companies can get you on average 3.5 times more in settlement money than by handling a case on your own.
Having someone on your side to fight for you after a semi-truck accident is key. Do your research and find an attorney that has your interests in mind and the skill to negotiate with trucking companies and their aggressive lawyers.
