If you’re watching this video, you may have recently been hurt in a trucking accident and you’re wondering whether or not you should hire an attorney. The weight of hiring an attorney can cost you tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.
18-Wheeler Accidents – What We Look For
Texas leads the nation in 18 wheeler deaths each year, but what you may not know is that certain vital evidence in your injury claim needs to be gathered immediately before it is erased or destroyed. An attorney will want to inspect the scene of the accident as soon as possible.
If that’s not possible, we want to at least inspect the truck that was involved in the accident. As long as we get a chance to inspect the truck before it is totaled or sold for parts, we can get vital information such as evidence of alcohol being drunk, prescription drug use, and things of that nature.
It’s also very important for us to get the onboard computer data, or what we call the “black box” information. There are also maintenance records, truck driving logs, and things of this nature that can easily be lost by the insurance company or amended later.
