If you were in a truck wreck in Albuquerque and suffered injury, you need a skilled attorney to help you get compensation. 

With numerous law firms out there, it can take time to identify the right one for you. However, knowing what to look for in an attorney can be the difference between winning or losing a lawsuit.  

Here are 5 ways to find the top Albuquerque truck wreck lawyer.

#1. Look for an Attorney with Truck Accident Experience

Lawyers specialize in an incredible number of different areas. For example, if you are injured in a truck accident, you might think any personal injury attorney is sufficient.

However, you want an even more specific attorney—one that knows the ins and outs of truck accidents. At Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C., we have plenty of experience getting compensation for truck accident victims.

We deal with all types of truck wreck injuries and all kinds of truck wrecks. 

Common Truck Wreck Injuries

Truck wreck injuries can range from mild to severe. Truck injuries tend to be worse than typical vehicle accident injuries, with occupants of the other vehicles experiencing the large majority of injuries.

Some truck wreck injuries include:

  • Back and neck injuries,
  • Traumatic brain injuries,
  • Broken bones,
  • Internal injuries,
  • Spinal cord injuries, and
  • Lacerations and deep bruising.

You likely have medical bills from these truck wreck injuries and need compensation.

Common Reasons That Truck Accidents Occur

There are many causes of truck accidents. Some examples are: 

  • Distracted driving, 
  • Speeding or driving too fast for the conditions,
  • Taking inadequate evasive action, 
  • Following too closely, 
  • Inadequate maintenance or faulty parts, and
  • Driving under the influence.

Regardless of the reason for your accident, an experienced truck accident attorney can aid you throughout the process of negotiating with insurance companies and bringing a lawsuit if necessary.

Truck Wreck Damages

A good attorney skilled in truck accident recovery will be able to get you the damages you deserve. This includes two main types of damages: economic and noneconomic. Economic damages include recovery for medical bills, such as:

  • Doctors,
  • Hospital, and
  • Physical therapy.

Economic damages also include lost wages, both past and future, that result from the accident. Noneconomic damages include more intangible costs, such as:

  • Pain and suffering,
  • Loss of enjoyment in life, 
  • Loss of consortium, and
  • Disfigurement and scarring.

These damages are available to you based on your injuries. Finding an experienced truck accident firm like Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C. to help you get recovery is essential. Contact us today to discuss your injuries and to have a free case review.

#2: Seek Out an Attorney Paid on a Contingency Basis

You should not have to pay any money upfront for legal representation. Many law firms, including Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C., operate on a contingency basis. That means we are only paid if you are. We take our fee as a percentage of your settlement or verdict. It’s simple—if you don’t recover, we don’t either. 

This system allows people who otherwise could not afford an attorney to get excellent representation. And it aligns our interests with yours: we want the best result possible.  

#3: Find an Attorney with Outstanding Online Reviews and Testimonials

Online reviews can provide insight into what it is like to work with an attorney. They can show the good and bad sides of a particular law firm or lawyer.

At Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C., we aim to satisfy our clients’ legal needs and provide aggressive, competent representation. If an attorney has good reviews, you can usually find them on their website or through links.

A firm with consistently positive reviews is a good one to contact. Be sure to read the reviews to answer any questions you may have. Testimonials may also be available. These are typically longer than reviews and may contain information about a specific case and the compensation. 

#4: Locate an Attorney Who Will Go to Court, If Necessary

Some attorneys want to settle your case and move on. While sometimes a quick settlement is the correct course of action, you want an attorney who will be aggressive in their representation and willing to file an Albuquerque truck wreck lawsuit.

You want an attorney to take on insurance companies and obtain fair truck wreck settlements. Our attorneys know how to negotiate with insurance adjusters. The attorneys at Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C. have significant experience arguing cases to juries.

#5: Schedule a Free Case Review

There is no better way to get a sense of whether an attorney is among the best in the area than to meet with them. This personal contact is one reason to schedule a free case review with Tawney, Acosta & Chaparro P.C.

During an initial consultation, you should focus on how the attorney listens and how they communicate with you. Pay attention to the attorney’s strategy and how they plan to recover for you.
