18 Wheeler Accidents

This last month I have read about several serious 18 wheeler or big truck accidents. There are not as many accidents between 18 wheelers and cars as there are between two automobiles, but the damage done to human life is certainly more in the 18 wheeler cases. The big rigs are subject a large number of Federal Regulations that govern both the operator and how the big truck is maintained. If you are an accident attorney you need to be familiar with these regulations.

When handling accident cases either between two cars or a car and a 18 wheeler it is important to collect evidence and investigate the facts as soon after the injury as possible. Sometimes we do not get hired until months after the accident. This can make our job harder. We often get hired when a client leaves another lawyer and comes to us because the clients feel nothing is being done by the other lawyer to help them. In our opinion if we have a serious injury case, we are going to file a civil action for the client. That is the only way the case is going to be brought to a conclusion on terms that are helpful to the client. In our experience insurance companies and big companies do not settle a case because the lawyer sends a demand letter. They settle the case when the lawyers gets the case filed and ready for trial.

It is important to know if you are seriously injured in any type of accident that there is very little probability that your case can or will be settled without filing a lawsuit and getting ready for trial. At Coxwell & Associates we take the position that taking the case toward a trial is the best way to benefit the client so we start that process as soon as the client has reached maximum medical recovery. We recognize that time in important, but we also know that preparing the case properly is the only way to get our clients the money they deserve. Getting our clients the money they deserve for an injury is our goal.

The firm as rule take only serious injury cases all across Mississippi, including HInds, Madison, Rankin, Copiah, Jefferson, Adams, Desoto County, and in other states.
