What caused my Vancouver truck accident?


How does a Vancouver truck accident attorney “get to the truth” about a crash?


The process is at both simple and elusive.


Step #1 - Think about the crash using “beginner’s mind


Many people think experienced truck crash lawyers rush quickly to judgment and crack a case as if they were solving a Sudoku puzzle.


That is not how it works.


Strategic lawyers spend time pondering the “crash puzzle” in depth before rendering judgment. They look at a situation and consider it from many different angles. The more plausible options an attorney can entertain, the better the chance of cracking the case.


Step #2 - Maintain a “facts speak louder than theories” mindset


  • What evidence is available?
  • What do we know happened?
  • What do the police reports say?
  • What pictures or other evidence can give us insight into the crash?


An effective lawyer, in many ways, is like a scientist. Rather than come up with hypotheses out of thin air, an experienced Vancouver truck wreck lawyer takes the time to study the circumstances and uses good “bottom up” reasoning, looking first to evidence, then to theory.


Step #3 - Hone intuition over time using feedback


Intuition is a tricky beast.


It takes practice to develop the skills that you need to begin to “trust your gut.” However, after years of handling similar matters, lawyers begin to develop sensitivities to patterns that might baffle the untrained eye.
