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
The sooner you hire an attorney, the better! Time is of the essence in any personal injury case, but especially in trucking accidents. Marks on the roadways can fade over time and vehicles often are removed and repaired quickly. For the best chance at optimal results, you should call a truck accident lawyer as soon as possible. Delaying the process can only give the trucking company a larger advantage over you.
