Proving that a driver or trucking company was at fault in your accident can be difficult, so having as much information as possible to support your claim is key to a successful personal injury lawsuit.
A personal injury lawyer can help you by:
- collecting evidence such as trucking company documents, logbooks, safety reports, police reports, medical records, photos, and video.
- working with expert witnesses who are trained in recreating commercial truck accidents to determine the cause of the crash. Police investigators, doctors, and truckers from other companies may also provide useful information.
- sending a spoliation letter to the trucking company to prevent evidence from being destroyed.
- comparing the driver’s logbook with other types of evidence collected at the scene.
