Do I Need A Truck Accident Lawyer?

We understand — few people look forward to having to hire an attorney. After being in an accident with a truck or other vehicle, you might wonder if a lawyer is necessary at all. If your accident was very straightforward and the insurance company chooses to do the right thing, you may not have any trouble collecting the compensation you need for your medical bills, lost wages and other damages.

However, those instances are rare. At Volkema Thomas Miller & Scott, LPA, our lawyers have helped thousands of people get justice and compensation after serious injuries. In most cases, an experienced attorney can do the same for you.

If your insurance company makes you an offer right away, it is likely a sign that your claim is worth more than they are offering. Even if an offer seems generous, it may not cover all of your damages in the long term. It is always wise to consult an attorney before speaking with another party or signing any agreement.

The Trucking Company Already Has Experienced Lawyers. Shouldn't You?

The trucking company and its insurer have been in this position many times before. They have denied adequate compensation to the victims of their negligence many times before. And, too often, accident victims and their attorneys have allowed them to get away with it.

Fortunately, they are not the only ones who have done this before. Our attorneys have more than a century of combined experience standing up for the rights of accident victims throughout Ohio. Insurers and trucking companies know us by name and reputation. When they receive a letter on our stationary, it makes them take notice and take your claim seriously.
