Investigating a Tractor-Trailer Accident
The trucking corporation’s investigators descend onto the scene immediately after a tractor-trailer wreck. Their intention is to reduce liability and mitigate damages. In fact, the corporation’s investigators commonly begin speaking to injured victims amidst the chaos of the accident scene.
Our attorneys also visit the scene as soon as we are retained. Our investigators take photographs, measure skid marks and debris patterns and interview witnesses to the accident. We also protect victims from underhanded defense tactics.
Once, the accident debris has been cleared, evidence can get lost or destroyed. The trucking company may begin dismantling the tractor or trailer, for example, or alter logbooks. Our lawyers make sure that does not happen. If necessary, we file an immediate emergency motion that orders the defendant corporations to preserve evidence and to allow us access to investigate.
