Due to the weight (and often the speed) of trucks on our roadways, injuries resulting from truck collisions are often very serious. Since trucks are usually owned by corporations and are well insured, there is a very strong incentive for truck owners and their insurance companies to fight these cases very hard.
These companies often have a squad of technicians and experts ready to get to work defending a loss the day it happens. Often they are at work “cleaning up” from a collision while the injured motorists are still in the hospital
Since most injury lawyers work under a contingent fee contract, the fee is the same regardless how soon after the injury the lawyer is hired. You need to have a knowledgeable injury lawyer compiling evidence on your behalf before it disappears and demanding that the trucking company preserve all evidence they gathered at the scene and from electronic recording devices on the truck.
Do not wait. If you or someone you know has been injured by a truck, get an experienced injury lawyer on the case at once.
