Accidents involving commercial vehicles can be catastrophic and handled by an attorney that has experience in handling these claims. It is important to secure as much evidence as quickly as possible. Most trucking companies have adjusters and sometimes accident reconstruction experts report to the scene so they can immediately begin their defense. It is important that the victim have representation so that this information can be secured for the victims as well.
Evidence such as photographs of property damage, downloading control models and other evidence may not be available later. It can be very difficult to obtain this evidence later if it is not immediately secured. There are also many federal rules and laws that must be complied with by drivers.
