Gathering Evidence After a Commercial Truck Accident
After an accident involving a heavy truck, it is important to get help from a truck accident lawyer who can work with experts and accident reconstructionists to find out what really happened. Truck accidents are often very complex. Special regulations govern truckers and the trucking companies that employ them. Violations of these rules may indicate fault for the accident.

For example, hours-of-service rules limit how long a trucker can drive without taking a break. This means that truck drivers’ logbooks are often important in an investigation of an accident that may have been caused by driver fatigue. Because logs are sometimes falsified, investigators may look at other evidence that shows how long a driver was behind the wheel. This could include toll tickets, fuel receipts, and cell phone records, for example.

Many tractor-trailers are equipped with data recorders similar to the “black boxes” that are often discussed in airline crashes. Retrieving information from these black boxes may provide critical insight into the cause of a truck accident. The physical condition of the truck may also hold clues. Because these kinds of information can quickly disappear, it is crucial to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after a crash so a completely independent investigation can start right away.

There are a number of potential parties that could be responsible for paying damages after a truck accident. These may include the trucking firm, the truck manufacturer, the maintenance company, the shipper of the cargo or others, based on the facts in the case.

You need a lawyer who will stand up to them and fight for your rights.
