Truckers and truck manufacturers are held to a higher standard than noncommercial drivers. If you're hurt in an accident caused by an 18-wheeler or other commercial truck, you may be entitled to pursue a claim against the driver or against the trucking company. A lawyer with experience representing people injured in truck accidents can help you get medical care and reimbursement for your injuries.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
