When a loved one is killed or catastrophically injured in a crash caused by a big rig, semi truck or tractor trailer, the defense deploys a rapid response team to massage the evidence before the victim’s family is notified. Without prompt action, crucial evidence may be lost or destroyed. That is why it is important to immediately hire a real trucking trial attorney after a catastrophic truck crash.
Ken Shigley is the only truck accident lawyer in Georgia who is:
Some law firms that advertise heavily for truck and bus crash cases never invest the time and effort to develop the necessary degree of specialized expertise. They may view a catastrophic commercial truck or bus accident as just a big car wreck. If so they are dangerously naive. Adequate preparation of such cases requires extensive knowledge of motor carrier law and technology, industry practices, and unique insurance features.
A real truck accident lawyer knows how to hit the ground running in a catastrophic truck crash case. Any truck accident attorney should have detailed knowledge and experience with investigation and litigation of catastrophic crashes of big commercial trucks. This must include detailed knowledge and experience related to the complexities of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, Commercial Driver’s License Manuals, state trucking rules, trucking technology including telematics systems, trucking industry standards and practices, trucking insurance, and how all of those interrelate in litigation.
