Hiring A Truck Accident Attorney in Toledo

After being involved in an accident with an interstate truck, it is wise to hire an attorney as soon as possible.

Investigating a Truck Accident

One of the first things that should be done after an injury accident with an interstate truck is to perform an investigation. This involves getting photos of the accident scene, you may need an accident reconstructionist, and you may also need to locate any witnesses.

The Truck Driver’s Log

It is also important to retrieve the driver’s log of the trucker after the accident occurs. Oftentimes the trucking companies only keep the driver’s logs for a short period of time (i.e. six months). If you fail to get the log before that time, you may not have the opportunity.

The things that the log will tell you include:

  • How long the driver was driving
  • If the driver received the proper rest
  • If the driver had been on the road for longer than 12 hours at a time

These can all play an important role in determining all individuals at fault for the accident, helping you to obtain a favorable settlement.

The Trucking Company’s Investigation

Trucking accident victims may also find that after being involved in the accident, the trucking company will have their insurance adjusters and their attorneys at the scene immediately after the accident. This gives them a head start in order to prove their side of the case.

Our piece of advice to anyone who has been involved in a serious injury accident with a truck is to hire an attorney soon after the accident. It is imperative to document the liability and the damages as soon as possible. You will want an attorney to start working on your behalf soon after the accident, not three months later.
