Most truck accident cases handled by WRIGHT LAW PLC come through attorney referrals who have busy practices in personal injury law or general areas. There are many advantages to entering joint-representation or co-counsel agreements. Joint representation agreements are ethical and allow lawyers to share contingent fee recoveries under Rule 1.5 of the Rules of Professional Conduct. These agreements allow the referring lawyer to stay involved in the case, but our firm can identify all the key players and handle discovery which includes obtaining all the documents and data contained in our comprehensive checklist of mandatory trucking discovery. We also will take the key depositions which often include the motor carrier records custodian, the safety director, the truck driver, the dispatcher, the corporate representative, the broker and shipper.
After discovery, we also prepare the case for trial and prepare the key exhibits, demonstrative aids and illustrations to most effectively communicate to the jury the story of the client’s case combined with thorough witness preparation.
In addition to freeing significant time to the referring lawyer, our truck accident law firm also has the resources and contacts to invest in hiring the best trucking experts, medical experts and other people to prove all damages available at law.
