Q: I started talking with the insurance company of the trucker who hit me but don't feel comfortable now. Can I still hire a lawyer?
A:You still have time to hire a lawyer for your Georgia truck accident case if you didn't accept their settlement offer. Having a skilled attorney on your side will benefit your recovery; however, a lawyer will need to know all that has been discussed so far and if you admitted to any part of fault in the accident.
Hiring a lawyer at the beginning of the case is critical so that a lawyer can request the truck driver's log books, request the onboard data, and take photographs of the scene and cargo load. There are many reasons why truck accidents occur, such as unsecured cargo loads, drowsy driving, and aggressive driving. An attorney who has experience handling these types of cases knows what to look for and can help you seek a just recovery.
