At John Hugh Shannon, we specialize in personal injury and trucking accidents, providing comprehensive guidance and expert representation throughout the legal process.
Filing a Lawsuit
After a truck accident, one of the first steps in seeking compensation for your injuries and damages is to file a lawsuit. Our experienced legal team will guide you through the process, ensuring that all necessary paperwork is properly filed within the required deadlines. We will gather all relevant evidence, including accident reports, medical records, and witness statements, to build a strong case on your behalf.
Investigation and Discovery
Once the lawsuit is filed, the next phase is the investigation and discovery process. This is where both parties exchange information and collect evidence to support their claims. Our team will work diligently to investigate the accident thoroughly, analyzing evidence such as skid marks, driver logs, and vehicle maintenance records. We may also consult accident reconstruction experts and medical professionals to establish liability and the extent of your injuries.
Negotiations and Settlement
In many truck accident cases, a settlement can be reached before going to trial. Our experienced attorneys at John Hugh Shannon are skilled negotiators and will strive to secure the best possible settlement for you.

We will present a compelling case, utilizing expert witnesses and persuasive arguments to prove liability and demonstrate the impact of the accident on your life. Throughout the litigation process, we will keep you informed, providing updates on the progress of your case.
