Is finding the right lawyer to file an action in a fatal large truck accident to protect your rights essential? Just ask Mary Aldrich.
Clay Aldrich was a 43-year-old high school economics teacher. He had been married for 15 years to Mary, the girl he met as a freshman in college. They were the parents of two boys. Clay often spent afternoons watching his son, Jackson, play sports. Clay enjoyed his job and had good rapport with his students. All in all, Clay was a good family man, providing a good life for his wife and kids. Unfortunately, no one could see what was coming on the road ahead.
Early one morning while Clay was making the long drive to work, he was hit head on by a semi-truck. The truck driver, Chad Billows, had fallen asleep at the wheel and allowed his semi to cross the centerline. Clay was pronounced dead at the scene and Billows was taken to the hospital. Mary, shocked and overcome with grief, did not know what to do.
Coming from humble means, Mary hired a discount attorney who had no experience as an Arizona wrongful death lawyer. Therefore, it was no surprise that when the insurance company offered a meager settlement, the lawyer (anxious to make a quick buck) accepted it. Mary was thereafter forced to work two jobs to get her kids through school. She thought she had done the right thing when she did it. It was not until much later that she knew she had made a huge mistake. Discount fees all too often mean cut corners and discount services. Don’t let this happen to you. Hire an experienced lawyer.
