Comprehensive Truck Accident Reconstruction and Investigation
Experience has taught our lawyers the tactics that people in the trucking industry use to cut corners and escape blame. With so much on the line, it is not uncommon for truck driver or trucking company to try to conceal their negligence. Fortunately, we know where to look to uncover the truth. Our accident reconstruction engineers will gather the following information:
- How fast each vehicle was traveling
- Who braked first
- Which vehicle hit the other
- Who caused the accident
In addition, our engineers will compare date from the truck’s black box, also known as the electronic control module, which captures data about the truck driver’s actions. We can compare that data with information supplied in the truck driver’s log book.
As part of our investigation process our investigators will review the truck driver’s background and driving history as well as the company hiring practices. We keep a keen eye out for any evidence that the truck driver or trucking company may have violated federal trucking regulations. This may include hours of service violations leading to truck driver fatigue, alcohol or drug abuse, and a failure to adequately maintain the truck. Truck maintenance records can be valuable evidence.
Truck accident claims are more complicated than other passenger injury cases because there are often multiple layers of ownership and insurance coverage. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling complex trucking accident claims. We have a thorough understanding of federal trucking regulations and what is needed to protect your rights.
