In respect to a lawsuit, tractor trailer accidents differ significantly from car accidents. In the usual auto accident a lawsuit is normally only brought against the driver of the vehicle. However in a semi-truck accident case, not only can the driver be found negligent, but also the company the driver works for. In addition, numerous other entities may also be found responsible or partially responsible in certain circumstances. The victim of an 18-wheeler accident can greatly benefit from the help of an experienced truck accident attorney when so many potential entities and complexities are involved in truck accident litigation.

Can the lawyer you select handle a truck accident case?

Eighteen-wheeler accidents can take months to litigate and tie up large amounts of an attorney's time and resources. Some law offices may not be able to incur the costs needed to adequately research and litigate the case, which may result in a lower level of representation in the courtroom  and could cost you your case.

The Cherry & Irwin law firm in Dothan, Alabama knows what it takes to properly litigate a trucking accident case. Not only are we willing to devote our vast resources, the time and energy necessary to pursue your case after it is accepted, but most cases are accepted on a contingency basis which means that you will not be charged a fee unless you win. This means you will not have to spend your money upfront for Cherry and Irwin to handle your truck accident case.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a truck, whether you feel you may have been at fault or not, take a minute to contact the lawyers at Cherry & Irwin to discuss your case. You will not be charged for this consultation.

How Long has it Been Since Your Accident?

Alabama, Florida and Georgia, like all states, have legislated a limit to how long you can wait after a tractor-trailer accident to file a personal injury lawsuit to recoup damages. This time period is two years, but you should not wait two years! First, if you are like most people, you will probably need financial assistance sooner than later to pay for a new car, pay medical bills and meet other obligations. In addition, the case becomes more difficult to research the longer you wait. So don't wait. Contact our truck accident attorneys right away for help with your case resulting from a truck wreck.
