Your attorney can help you take legal action against those responsible for your injuries and losses.
Trucking companies have powerful resources on their side, so you need legal professionals who are up to the task of battling them. The following is a general overview to guide you through the most common steps in filing a lawsuit with a personal injury attorney.
The first thing to expect when you work with the North Carolina, South Carolina & Virginia semi-truck lawyers of Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban is compassion for your situation, followed by more than 200 years of combined legal experience in personal injury cases, 24/7 availability, and unparalleled dedication to maximizing your compensation.

Your lawsuit begins when our truck accident lawyers formally file a legal complaint for you. The complaint is a written statement that describes:

Truck accident cases are often quite complex; that’s why it is important for your counsel to have the skills and resources to fight for the maximum possible compensation.
After we file your complaint, the defendants have a set amount of time to file their answers to your complaint by stating their position and indicating how they intend to defend against your case.
The actions performed in the discovery phase include:
Armed with accurate and comprehensive information, your attorneys can help you decide whether settlement or trial offers you the best option for fair recovery.
During any phase before trial, the parties may seek to negotiate a settlement. Our attorneys negotiate for the most favorable compensation possible for you. If an acceptable offer is put forth and agreed upon, the defendants agree to pay certain damages to you and you agree to drop the lawsuit.
If the defendants are unwilling to work out a fair settlement, the discovery phase closes and we proceed to trial. At trial, the court decides who is at fault, to what degree, and how much you should be compensated.
