What to Look for When Hiring an 18-Wheeler Accident Attorney

The truth is when you are involved in a crash with an 18-wheeler, you are instantly at a disadvantage. Similar to a passenger vehicle facing a 40-ton semi-truck, the company that owns and operates the 18-wheeler has money and resources that vastly exceed that of the average San Antonio resident. If you plan to recover fair compensation, the first thing to consider is that you are not on a level playing field when it comes to filing you claim. This is why you need an experienced San Antonio semi accident lawyer.
