Navigating personal injury or criminal defense laws can be difficult, and you may be wondering where to even begin when you think you need a lawyer.
We’ve put together some of our most commonly asked questions to assist you during this time. As always, contact us directly with any questions regarding your specific case, and we will be happy to assist you in moving forward in the right direction to receive a positive outcome.
Search for experienced lawyers in your area who specialize in drug defense or drug crime practice. Check their reviews and client testimonials. Call to arrange a free consultation with a few law firms or attornies, and ensure they understand the parameters of your case and what you need specifically. When you find a lawyer you are comfortable and confident working with, provide them their retainer fee to represent you.
If there are major injuries, do not move vehicles and immediately dial 911 to get medical assistance. Gather all the information you can, including the insurance information of the truck driver, the company they work for, etc. Take photos of the damages before the vehicles are moved. Collect names and contact info of any witnesses. Do not admit fault during any conversation with anyone. Contact an experienced truck accident lawyer to handle your case.
You need a drunk driving attorney if you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence. Even a first offense can result in a misdemeanor charge that still carries severe penalties. If this is not the first offense, or if someone was badly injured or died as a result of the accident, you will need a DUI defense lawyer to assist you with your case to achieve either dropping the charges, winning in court, or reducing the sentencing.
After receiving medical attention after a personal injury, you can contact a personal injury lawyer to file a claim. They will discuss your case and determine the liability. If eligible to be processed, the lawyer will then notify all parties of the claim’s creation. Insurance companies will be contacted, medical bills requested, and a claim for lost wages filed. Once all documents are received and reviewed, a settlement negotiation will begin. You can either settle or proceed to court if offers are unreasonable.
You may still be entitled to compensation depending on details of the accident. An experienced lawyer can assist with absolving you of any fault by looking at all of the facts of the accident, including the police report, videos and photos, witness statements, and more. By reducing your fault percentage you can save money from compensation owed for damages and in your insurance rates.
