A crash with a semi-truck is extremely dangerous. It is not like a typical car accident. These massive machines can weigh 80,000 pounds. Traveling at highway speeds, a crash often causes severe injuries and even death. Typical injuries from a crash with a semi-truck include:

These are devastating accidents. Trucking companies and their insurers are in the business of transportation. When it comes to truck wrecks, they know how important it is to gather evidence early.

They train drivers at the scene to call their lawyers and to document everything. They want to frame the events in their favor, and they take every opportunity to do so. That means the trucking company and insurance lawyers often arrive at the scene before the vehicles are even towed away. They try to discuss the investigation with the investigating officers, and they immediately start strategizing their defense to hurt your potential case.

While it can be hard to play catch-up, it is important that you have evidence to prove your case. Skid marks and other physical evidence begin to fade and disappear within days after the accident. It is also important for the company to preserve all physical and electronic evidence. The longer you wait to contact a truck accident lawyer, the harder it will be to prove your case.

If you have not hired a truck accident lawyer, you should contact the trucking company in writing as soon as possible, and tell them they must preserve the physical and electronic evidence. These early letters are important because over time, evidence disappears.
