Injured In A Truck Accident?
Trucking companies mobilize quickly after a truck accident. Before the accident scene is even cleaned up, they may have their own lawyers and insurance people on the case, looking for ways to minimize their risk and avoid having to pay compensation to the injured party. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a truck wreck, it is critical that you act quickly and do not allow the trucking company and its insurer to get an unfair advantage.

Preserving Evidence And Building Strong Cases
One of the key reasons for fast movement in truck accident claims is the importance of preserving evidence. Waiting too long allows the trucking company time to do repairs on the truck or scrap it. It also gives the company time to reset or destroy the electronic control module, sometimes referred to as the black box. This module may contain data related to the truck’s speed and braking that could prove crucial for showing the truck driver’s negligence. We want to make certain it is not taken out of play by the trucking company.
What Caused The Trucking Accident?
Our lawyers will preserve and review evidence to determine specifically what form of negligence took place. Was the truck driver tired? Truck driver fatigue is a serious and common cause of truck wrecks. Was the truck driver drunk or drugged? Was the truck driver distracted by texting or talking on a cellphone?
In some cases, a defective or poorly maintained truck may be to blame. Trucks are big machines that need to be maintained regularly. Failure to fix and replace tires, brakes and other important components can lead to life-shattering accidents, and we will make certain that those responsible for such negligence are held accountable.
