Reasons for Hiring a Specialist
There are a number of reasons that you will want to hire an attorney that specializes in this type of accident rather than someone that has not had experience specific to this situation. Asking the right questions is the most important part of getting started in your case. Some questions specific to the situation that Wites & Kapetan would need to know are:
- How long had the driver of the truck been driving without sleep?
- What does the truck driver’s record look like regarding previous accidents, citations and DUIs?
- Is there a proper incident report filled out by the truck driver after the accident?
- Who owns all of the components of the truck? Is the driver the owner, the company they work for the owner and are they the owner of both truck and trailer?
- Where is the owner of the truck or the company that the driver works for based from?
The answers to these questions can dramatically affect the strategy that the attorney develops for your case. They will use this information to figure out what direction to take and the South Florida truck accidents attorney will know to ask these vital questions.
