Fighting for Heavy Truck Accident Victims
Heavy trucks, also known as tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers, can cause terrible accidents and injuries. Often, it is the drivers of smaller vehicles and their families who are left to deal with life-changing injuries, and even the untimely death of a loved one. During this difficult time, you want to focus on helping your family member recover or on remembering your loved one, not legal issues. Unfortunately, the trucking companies and their insurance carriers are already hard at work, sending out their own investigators in an attempt to capture evidence in their favor and to deny liability.
At The Vic Hawk Law Firm, our hearts go out to you. While you are caring for your injured loved one or making funeral arrangements, our attorneys are here to protect your rights and to begin building a strong personal injury claim.
Time is of the essence in truck injury cases. Act quickly to prevent the trucking company from destroying valuable evidence. The trucking companies send out a team of investigators immediately following an accident to protect their interest and avoid or reduce their responsibility. Crucial evidence is lost if you fail to protect your family's interest.
Under federal trucking guidelines, truck logs and computer records that contain important information such as the speed the truck was going can be legally destroyed by trucking companies after a period of time.
If your loved one has been injured or killed in a truck accident, contact us as soon as possible. We have our own investigators who will quickly get to work, and our lawyers will take legal action to prevent the trucking company from destroying any records that could help establish responsibility for the accident.
