Investigating Truck Accidents With Diligence And Care
Truck accident cases are much more complex than typical motor vehicle accident claims. There is a lot of work that needs to be done, beginning with a thorough investigation. If you or a loved one has been hurt in a trucking crash, it is important that you choose a lawyer with experience handling these claims, so you can be certain that your case will be investigated properly and that all evidence will be uncovered and used to strengthen your claim.
At Shollenberger, Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, we have earned a track record of success in these cases in part because of our skill in collecting and protecting truck accident data after an accident. The process begins with a free initial consultation with our attorneys in Harrisburg and Enola, Pennsylvania.
What Needs To Be Investigated After A Truck Wreck?
Investigation is important to determine who was responsible for the truck collision. We cannot simply assume that the truck driver was responsible. Yes, negligence on the part of the truck driver may have caused the accident. However, it is also possible that trucking company negligence played a role or was completely to blame for the accident. Other parties, such as truck part manufacturers, may need to be held accountable as well.
Among the things that we must investigate are videos from drive cameras in trucks, electronic control module (ECM) data and more. We act quickly when we are hired to handle a truck accident claim because we want to obtain this information before it can be tampered with or destroyed by our opponents. We will take the necessary steps to protect this evidence. We will use our knowledge to examine it and we may also bring in experts in fields, such as truck accident reconstruction, to help us review information to understand who was to blame.
Our lawyers will carefully investigate to determine exactly which party will be the target of the claim and which insurance company. We are adept at handling trucking accident claims against multiple parties and multiple insurance companies.
