Tips for attorneys: How to settle a truck accident for “8 figures”

Written by Steve Gursten Posted December 7th, 2016

Roundtable Co-Founders will share tips that can literally add millions of dollars to a truck accident settlement during a national CLE webinar today


There are strategies and tactics that can literally add millions of dollars to a truck accident settlement. We know because when protecting clients who’ve been seriously injured in catastrophic wrecks, or the families of those who’ve been tragically killed, all three founding attorneys of the Roundtable have used them.  We’ve used these tips and ideas to help recover seven- and eight- figure verdicts and settlements for the families we’re entrusted with protecting and helping.

We’re happy to share this experience and knowledge with other attorneys, who we hope will take on the same mission we share: Making our roads safer and reducing the number of truck accidents that occur. And the best way we know of to do this is by helping educate other attorneys on how a truck wreck case is different from other types of cases.

Today, Joe Fried, Michael Leizerman and I will share tips on what we’ve done to recover multiple 8-figure settlements and trial verdicts in truck accident cases across the country, during a webinar hosted by the American Association for Justice.

If you’re new to this legal blog, we are fellow Co-Founders of the Truck Accident Attorneys Roundtable, our national trucking law firm that we operate together with the aim of pooling our extensive knowledge in truck accident litigation to help people hurt in these catastrophic truck cases.

The webinar runs from 3-4:15 p.m. EST and counts for CLE credits in multiple states.

During the presentation, we will explore tactics to improve settlements in truck litigation, from how attorneys can identify and create conflicts between different insurance layers, to helping lawyers find the core truths that exist behind every serious truck accident. This is an advanced presentation that focuses on ways lawyers can improve truck accident settlements – particularly when negotiating a settlement in the catastrophic truck accident injury or wrongful death cases.

Joe, Michael and I formed the Truck Accident Attorneys Roundtable law firm in 2014, and recovered the top-reported truck accident settlement in the country that year.  You can read about how we’ve helped truck accident victims and their families here.
