A Timely Investigation Is Key
If you are able to after your accident, it is important to get in touch with an attorney immediately. That will allow them to begin taking pictures of the scene and take measurements of skid marks and other accident debris. In many truck accident cases, forensic evidence from the scene is the key to making or breaking a case. Waiting too long can ruin a case, as evidence is often cleaned up by the highway patrol or by Mother Nature.
There is no doubt that the truck driver’s insurance company has investigators on the scene gathering evidence. Shouldn’t you do the same? Our firm works closely with accident reconstructionists and other experts to bolster the claims of our clients. From investigations at the scene to analyzing on-board recorders, we will leave no stone unturned.
