Video on what to do after if you’ve been injured in a truck accident to make sure this doesn’t happen to you
Normally, I tell people they do not need to rush and go out and hire a lawyer if they’ve been injured in an automobile accident. But truck accidents are different, and there are different rules at play. So today I’d like to share this short video about why it’s so critically important to contact an experienced attorney with who understands truck accident lawsuits immediately if you or someone you love is injured in a crash involving a tractor trailer.
Yes, it may sound self serving. But when you understand that the clock is ticking, and that the lawyers hired by the trucking company will start destroying evidence that could have been critical to proving negligence as soon as three months from the crash, you realize that – at least when it comes to litigation involving trucks – time is NOT on your side.
After a truck accident, especially those with large motor carriers who have lawyers already involved, the important company documents that can prove negligence can be legally destroyed within a very short period of time. The longer you wait, the more likely evidence will not be available later on that could have been very important to proving liability or damages (increasing how much the truck case is worth):
An experienced truck accident attorney will know how to preserve these documents and protect your legal rights.
