After a truck accident, you will need adequate evidence to prove the truck driver’s liability. You may even be able to show the trucking company or another party was negligent.
Some of the evidence that can be helpful to your case will be in the hands of the driver or employer. This could include the driver’s logbook, driving history, and data from an onboard recording device. There may be inspection or maintenance reports on the truck that could also come in handy. It’s often necessary to have an attorney collect this type of information with a notification to the trucking company or by filling a restraining order.
Other types of evidence important to collect include a copy of the police report, statements from witnesses, and pictures of the damaged vehicles and accident scene. If there was video footage or snapshots from a red light camera, these can also come in handy.
Collecting evidence is just one of the important steps you will need to take after a truck accident in Ohio. It will also be vital to your case to seek medical care and talk with an attorney who handles these types of claims.
