These are complex cases, and we recommend involving our firm as soon as possible so we can begin protecting your interests.
When it comes to investigating a truck accident case, it’s important to keep in mind that evidence can be lost or become more difficult to locate the longer you wait. Items are moved or even completely removed from the scene. Skid marks wash away with rain and other items like broken asphalt, walls, and buildings get replaced or repaired. Vehicles are repaired before pictures are taken. Witness memories fade. Witnesses disappear. Trucking logs become more difficult to obtain.
When you act quickly and involve a lawyer, you protect your ability to secure maximum compensation. Call (800) 661-7044 now for a free consultation.
Causes of Orange County Truck Accidents
Determining the cause of your accident is important, as this will influence who pays your claim. We recommend taking pictures and videos of the vehicles, people, and injuries if you have been involved in a truck accident. After being retained, we also use investigators to follow-up with measurements, pictures, and interviews. Truck accident reconstruction or biomechanical engineering experts are retained in some cases to help with the investigation and analysis of the collision. Things like liability and force of impact can be determined for the claim or trial.
