Thorough Investigation Of A Truck Accident Is Key
An investigation of a truck accident is a search for answers. In the aftermath of a serious wreck, truck drivers and their employers will not volunteer information that could be used against them in a personal injury or wrongful death case. It usually takes a lawyer’s help to find out what happened.

Collecting And Preserving Evidence Of Liability
Insurance companies covering trucking companies often send investigators to the scenes of major truck accidents within hours. These investigators will be looking for ways to shield the trucking company from a large damage award in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. To ensure that the evidence of trucking company liability is not overlooked or destroyed, it’s important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
Examples of evidence include:
- Driver logbooks
- Past violations by the truck driver or trucking company
- Maintenance records
- The vehicles involved in the accident, including the tractor-trailer
- Skids marks and accident debris
- The truck’s GPS unit (if equipped)
