Why Do I Need an Attorney After a Truck Crash?
After a truck collision, you need to get representation as soon as possible. An immediate investigation after a wreck with a tractor trailer is the most crucial aspect of the process. Insurance providers that represent truck companies often send investigators and their own attorneys to the scene as quickly as possible. The investigators attempt to prove that the truck company is not responsible for any injuries or deaths that occurred. The attorneys will try to claim that the investigation is privileged and not discoverable due to work product doctrine. Acquiring representation from an experienced attorney is imperative – not only will our own investigators inspect the scene of the accident, but we can counter the actions of the tractor trailer driver’s insurance company.
Truck crash cases are frequently more complicated than other auto wrecks. These cases often involve the use of numerous expert witnesses, drivers from out of state and complex discovery.
In some situations, truck accident lawsuits involve out-of-state parties that require removing the case to federal court. When this occurs, you need an attorney with experience in federal litigation. Our lawyers have experience in federal litigation, and attorney Beau Wilder has served as a clerk for a federal court judge before starting his trial practice.
What Can I do if I was in a Tractor Trailer Wreck?
You can help yourself after a truck crash by performing these steps:
- Check to see if you or anyone else sustained injuries. Call 911 to get the police and an ambulance to the scene at once.
- Do not talk to the truck driver or insurance company attorneys or investigators any more than necessary. Never admit fault or apologize – the truck company will seek to use this as evidence against you.
- Call Stewart Law Offices, LLC as soon as possible to receive important attorney advice. The quicker you speak with us, the more likely it is that we can recover driving logs and records from the trucking operation. Evidence like this tends to disappear the longer victims wait to take action, which can hurt your legal case.
