|What should I do if I am injured in a truck accident in North Augusta?|
Last month, I had a client that was badly injured in a tractor trailer wreck on Atomic Road, and she asked me what she should do the day after the wreck to help preserve her case. If you’re reading this, you may have the same questions. I’ll share with you what I shared with her.
It’s important to hire an experienced tractor trailer lawyer soon after the wreck. That lawyer can get accident reconstruction experts to the scene to obtain data from the scene, such as skid marks and gouge marks and different debris in the road. The experts can interview witnesses. An experienced tractor trailer lawyer can also write letters to the trucking company demanding that the trucking company preserve data concerning the wreck. Every commercial tractor trailer has black boxes which show the speed of the tractor trailer and show braking times of the tractor trailer.
Many tractor trailers and commercial trucks also have videos on board that will show the wreck. Sometimes if an attorney is not hired soon enough, the tractor trailer and commercial trucking companies will discard this information. They’ll discard logbooks of the driver’s time in service in driving the truck, so it’s important to preserve this evidence. It’s important to have experts gather this data and evidence as soon as possible.
