Truck Accidents Often Cause Serious Damage
Automobiles are many times forced to share roads and highways with domineering large trucks. Unfortunately, when a large truck is involved in an accident, the ramifications are dire. While most trucking accidents occur at high speeds on the highway, even low-speed trucking accidents can have catastrophic results. These calamitous consequences are what distinguish these accidents from all others.

Collecting Evidence To Build Your Claim
It is important for you to begin protecting yourself immediately following an accident with a tractor-trailer or any other commercial motor vehicle. With substantial experience in truck accident and other personal injury cases, The Law Offices of Craig J. Brown, P.A., knows that a full understanding of the details is imperative for truck accident cases.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require motor carriers (trucking companies) to retain many documents and other items following an accident involving one of their trucks. As a result, trucking companies will often have an investigator at the scene of the accident within hours — possibly before law enforcement arrives.
In addition, many of the documents the trucking company is required to keep are time-sensitive. This means that the trucking company may discard or throw away some materials after the accident. Thus, it is very important to contact a truck accident attorney following a collision.

Truck accidents are usually more complex than other types of wrecks. We can consult experts regarding liability, and our team may call a reconstruction expert while evidence is still fresh. We will also need to identify and read satellite GPS records and electronic control modules before they are destroyed — usually within 90 days as a standard operating procedure for most companies.
Our experience allows us to foresee legalities you are likely to face and can help you find justice no matter how evasive it may seem after experiencing a devastating accident. We will personally handle all aspects of your case to ensure you have the best possibility to receive due compensation.
