Why Should You Hire a Real Trial Lawyer?


Why Tired Truck Drivers

Cause Accidents

Truck accidents account for a small portion of the total number of accidents on the road every year. These accidents, though, are still far too common. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration reports that in 2017, large trucks and busses injured more than 170,000 people. While the number of truck accidents may be fewer, they are more likely to result in severe, life-altering injuries than a car accident. They are also more likely to result in death. For the families dealing with the aftermath of a truck accident, it can be a terrifying time. These difficult, complex cases will require the help of an experienced truck accident attorney.

Truck Accident, Baumgartner Law Firm

How a legal team handles truck accident cases differs from how they will deal with a typical car accident case. If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident, then you’ll want to understand the differences and how they could impact your settlement.


What lawyer you hire will have the single biggest impact on your settlement. Truck accident lawyers understand the severity and complexity of these cases and are ready to fight hard on behalf of their clients. Compared to car accident cases, these cases need more time and attention to get the best results.

Truck accident cases may be worth millions in damages, but that also means the cost of fighting these cases is significantly more than a car accident. The cost of the investigation and building the case will come out of the settlement, though, and not out of your own pocket. So, you can afford to hire the legal team you feel will do the best job with your case.
