Investigating a truck accident is searching for the truth. Was it the truck driver’s fault? Did he or she follow federal law by taking rest breaks? Was the truck improperly loaded or even overloaded? Was the truck driver following the speed limit?
While it is safe to assume that the state highway patrol will fairly conduct a full investigation, it is not always the case. Sometimes, the officer will take the truck driver’s word as the truth. As a result, the accident report may be one-sided. The insurance company for the trucking company will do all it can to avoid liability regarding your accident.
It will not have to pay you anything if it can show that the accident was your fault and not the fault of the truck driver. It will send investigative teams to the scene within hours to collect evidence because there are potentially millions of dollars at stake. This means that the evidence that you need to prove the truck driver was at fault may drive away from the accident scene.
It is critical to have your own team working to protect your rights to fair compensation and to protect your interests. Once you reach out to us, we can secure all the evidence needed to prove fault by examining all of the possible causes of your accident, including speeding drug or alcohol abuse, driver fatigue, improper maintenance or otherwise negligence.
Typically, truck drivers walk away from accidents, but the same cannot be typically said for the people in the other vehicle. You are likely to be facing a long and painful recovery and may even suffer permanent impairments if you are involved in an accident involving a semi.
