Question:

Why is it important to file a truck accident claim immediately?

Answer:

When I’m asked why is it important to bring an investigation right away in a trucking accident claim, the answer is very simple. If you don’t begin the investigation immediately, then critical evidence can be lost, or destroyed, or fade away. What I mean by that and especially when it comes to commercial trucking accident claims involving interstate trucking, interstate trucks that drive state to state, they have certain requirements of what they have to do, those drivers. They can’t be driving too many hours in a row. There’s information relating to skid marks, to what we call yaw marks on pavements.

When we receive these cases, we send our investigator out to the accident scene. We make sure that they’re going to interview all the witnesses. We want to make sure that we get the critical electronic black box information which is that information that’s stored in the online computer of the vehicle, or at times, on the truck itself, to determine the speed of the vehicles, the manner of impact, how the impact affected what was occurring to the vehicle in terms of its direction of travel before the impact occurred.

All that critical information is – you’re only going to be able to retrieve that information if you act quickly in an investigation to get that information promptly. If you have any questions about a trucking accident claim, please call us here at Perenich Law Injury Attorneys. As soon as we’re retained on these claims, we get our investigators out there to interview witnesses and get the required information and evidence so that it is not lost and it can be brought to a courtroom if necessary to prove the truth of what happened in your situation.
