Experience Matters In Cases Involving Commercial Trucks
Since 1959, The Floyd Law Firm in St. Louis has handled thousands of cases involving collisions with semi trucks, tractor-trailers and other large commercial vehicles. We believe there is a difference between saying you will accept truck accident cases and having the ability to litigate them successfully. The difference can make a huge impact on your case.
The ability to litigate — and win — settlements or jury verdicts in truck accident cases is a skill that takes years of practice and successful results to hone. Why? Listed below are a few of the many reasons:
- Your attorney needs resources to obtain evidence. Evidence tends to disappear in personal injury cases, especially those involving trucking companies and their insurers. It is imperative that you preserve evidence at the scene or obtain it from the parties you are suing. You must take depositions and make document requests. You need resources to accomplish this. With our past successes, we have the capital we need to advance all of your litigation costs.
- Your attorney needs to understand the evidence. Attorneys not only need evidence, but they also must know how to interpret that evidence. They need to know what to look for and anticipate how it will be used during trial. These early actions could prove crucial in later settlement negotiations or jury determinations. It is a skill that takes years and many cases to master.
- Your attorney needs to use the evidence effectively. You can have the evidence and understand it, but it can be ineffective without the ability to build a strong argument.
- Your attorney’s reputation for winning can impact your case. The Floyd Law Firm has a tradition of winning. Our opponents know we are serious even before we begin litigation, which can help keep them from making inadequate settlement offers.
