Investigation of Truck Accidents
In virtually every trucking company manual, there are instructions for their truck drivers on what to do in the event of an accident. One of the first things truckers are instructed to do is report the accident to dispatch or company management. And as soon as the company gets the call that one of their truckers has been involved in a serious accident, they immediately send out their team of local investigators. If the wreck is serious enough, they will even fly experts and lawyers to the scene on the same day as the wreck. Oftentimes, these investigators, experts and lawyers are at the scene of the accident, taking photos, talking to witnesses and gathering evidence while you or your loved on is still at the emergency room.
Now imagine, as a result of the wreck, you are in the hospital for weeks. During this time, the trucking company has continued to gather evidence in hopes of not paying you a dime for your losses. By the time you are finally discharged from the hospital, the trucking company has finished its investigation and you have not even started. In fact, you do not even know when you will start because you have months of therapy scheduled, you are in pain and tired and you can barely get through your day to day activities. Worse yet, crucial physical evidence like skid marks and yaw marks, which are used by experts to reconstruct the accident, are now gone and lost forever.
