Insurance companies are not on your side. Their goal is to pay as little as possible and settle claims as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, insurance companies often take advantage of the unrepresented or underrepresented. Trucking companies in particular have full-time attorneys working on their side. If you or a loved one has been in a trucking accident, it is important that you have experienced legal representation on your side.

Make Sure Your Settlement Includes More Than Just Medical Costs

Don't hire an attorney who will settle your case for less than what it's worth. Insurance companies know that an attorney who is an experienced litigator is not going to advise a client to take a settlement that is not fair and just. A personal injury attorney who has a reputation as an effective trial attorney has the skill to negotiate for the full and maximum settlement you deserve. A just and fair settlement will often include lost wages, pain and suffering, any disability suffered and more.

At Menges Law Firm you don't pay attorneys' fees unless you win. We will work on your case on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay us unless we recover financial compensation for you.

Steps Your Attorney Will Take After An Accident

At Menges Law Firm, we will gather the evidence to ensure that no relevant detail is overlooked. In a motor vehicle accident, truck accident, car crash or motorcycle crash injury case, we typically:

  • Make sure our client receives proper medical care
  • Protect our client from insurance company-aligned doctors
  • Investigate the scene of the accident
  • Determine cause, including rollover and brake failure cases
  • Hire experts when necessary
  • Prepare for trial
  • Fight for maximum settlement

To protect yourself from predatory insurance company representatives, it is best to contact an experienced attorney as soon as you can after an accident. If a loved one died as the result of an auto accident or truck accident, you may be eligible for wrongful death compensation.
