As a trial lawyer my job is not to present a client's side of the story, but to convince the jury what actually happened. I cringe when I hear the phrase "There's two sides to the story" My client's have either been hurt or arrested, it's my job to help prove that they were in the right, and that is fact, not fiction.
If you are involved in a trucking accident, you may benefit from the services of a trucking accident lawyer. Trucking accident lawyers know the dynamics of truck crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors which may have been involved. Tired truckers falling asleep at the wheel can cause trucking accidents, as can car drivers who abruptly change lanes without signaling. Unfortunately, truck accidents can easily start a chain reaction. A trucking accident lawyer will discover who is responsible, whether insurance policies will pay for your losses, and what you can expect to recover in damages if the accident was someone else's fault.
