Vehicle collisions of this caliber often include more factors than in a personal vehicle collision. Hiring a truck accident attorney ensures none of these details get overlooked, which in turn gets you the maximum compensation you deserve.

Trucking companies often have their own teams of attorneys who are experienced in battling injured victims in these types of cases. They will do everything they can to protect themselves from paying for their negligence. An experienced trucking accident lawyer will know how to combat any attempts to mitigate your damages.

Spoilation of Evidence

Evidence in a truck accident can include vehicle damage, camera footage, witness accounts, and much more. As trucking accidents often are larger cases, there is also often a larger amount of evidence. A truck accident attorney will ensure that none of this evidence is destroyed or tainted in any way. There are various ways to do this, most often starting with a spoilation of evidence letter to the trucking company and its insurance provider.

Destroying or hiding the evidence helps the trucking company to avoid liability for the accident. Your attorneys at Biesterveld & Crook, LLC can take the necessary steps to ensure all of the evidence remains preserved.

When to Hire a Trucking Accident Attorney
