Why You Need To Hire a Board-Certified Truck Accident Attorney

Your life has been turned upside down by a tractor-trailer crash. Now what? You need help getting your life back on track, and you need that help now.

You don’t have time to wait for a lawyer to learn about the ins and outs of the trucking industry or how to follow lines of liability as a truck or cargo passed through multiple hands. When your financial stability, physical and mental well-being, and right to compensation are all on the line, you need an attorney who has proven that they are capable of taking on the big trucking companies and winning.

This is why it’s important to hire a board-certified truck accident attorney. At Trucking Injury Law Group, we are proud to be certified through the National Board of Trial Advocacy, an institution that has stood for excellence in the legal industry since 1977.

What Does It Mean To Be Certified by the NBTA?

why you need to hire a board certified truck attorney

For more than four decades, the National Board of Trial Advocacy has been certifying attorneys in a variety of specialty areas. Through a vigorous review and written examination process, certification with the NBTA demonstrates an attorney’s dedication to their profession, an extensive understanding of their specialty area, and their commitment to upholding the standards of the legal field. As of now, there are only roughly 60 attorneys in the country who have been certified for truck accident law by the NBTA.

The Difference a Board-Certified Truck Accident Attorney Can Make in Your Case

Even what may seem like “simple” truck crashes are often anything but. For example, a minor collision between a tractor-trailer and a passenger vehicle may involve multiple at-fault parties with varying degrees of liability. An attorney must have the experience, knowledge, and dedication necessary to comb through the complex layers of liability, deal with the insurance companies, and stand up for what is right.

Truck accident cases are far more complicated than injury claims only involving passenger vehicles. An NBTA certification in truck accident law proves that an attorney has the skill set to handle “the procedural, substantive and practical issues unique to collision cases involving commercial tractor-trailers, buses and other commercial motor vehicles and all of the people and entities in the transportation cycle.”

An NBTA certified truck accident attorney has the expertise needed to:

  • Assign fault to all at-fault parties
  • Evaluate and analyze evidence
  • Review the police report for any factual errors
  • Evaluate your past, current, and future medical expenses
  • Calculate the value of your claim
  • Deal with multiple insurance companies on a client’s behalf
  • Negotiate for maximum compensation
  • Elevate matters to court when a settlement is not possible
