Why is it important to immediately investigate a trucking accident?
Author: Attorney Dennis Schaefer
The sooner you investigate any accident the better. There is no way to get around that conclusion. Frankly, it doesn’t matter if it is a car accident, or a slip and fall, an accident with a truck or any other combination of accidents, the sooner you investigate the accident the better it will be for your case.
Specifically, when it comes to a truck accident the issues become more significant. No group or entity is more aware of the potential fault evidence than truckers. Truckers are constantly in accidents all over the country. They are well aware of all of the technical details of fault evidence in an accident. The sooner an investigator is on the scene of the accident, the less likely any evidence will be tampered with at the scene. The more likely that the evidence will be preserved which is in your favor.
When dealing with the group most experienced in accidents, it will always be best to get the police and your own private investigators to the scene ASAP. It is not always an easy thing to do. However it will be very helpful to your case. If you have any questions always feel welcome to call Dell & Schaefer and speak to a lawyer on the telephone.
