Why It’s Important to Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer Immediately After an Accident

It is important to act quickly if you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, whether the accident concerns a tractor trailer, an 18-wheeler, big rig, or other commercial truck.

Why?

Because as soon as a commercial truck is involved in a collision, the trucking company is notified, often by automatic electronic means. The trucking company “go team” will then usually head to the accident scene immediately.

If the truck company is likely at fault, they will have a strong incentive to take whatever actions they can that will serve their interests.  They may have the truck removed and the accident scene cleaned up. Important evidence, such as black box information, truck condition, and tires, may be taken into their control, and may be destroyed, damaged, or otherwise become unavailable or rendered useless.

This information may be critical to proving your case.  Without this information, you may not have a very good case.

Experienced defendants, such as national trucking companies, know this.  They also are very adept at how they should act immediately following an accident so that their liability will be minimized.
