Most people dislike the thought of suing, but victims of 18-wheeler accidents may find themselves with no alternative. If you find yourself in this circumstance, you might question if you can “keep it simple” and suit without hiring an attorney. Yes, you have that legal right, but it is not a good decision for several reasons.
To begin with, lawsuits are complicated and subject to several particular rules. If you file a lawsuit on your own, you will still be expected to follow all of the same rules that a trained attorney follows, and breaking those rules, even inadvertently, might end in the same outcome as if an attorney broke them – your case being permanently lost.
Second, even if you suit without an attorney, the tractor-trailer driver and his employer will not. The majority of trucking companies are insured by large insurance companies that employ very trained and costly lawyers. It will not be a fair fight, and the defense attorneys will go to great lengths to ensure you lose your case.
