SIze and Weight Matters
Because of a trucks size and weight to a car’s size and weight when you are involved in a crash that involves a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, the results can be devastating.

The Sooner Evidence is Collected, Preserved, and Examined, the Better
Physical evidence at the accident scene such as skid marks, yaw marks and scuffs begin to disappear within hours after a truck accident once the police barriers are removed. Weather, and cars and trucks passing along the same stretch of the road will erode evidence. Although there are certain documents relevant to a truck accident case that are mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) to be kept for a specific time period, once that time period has expired the trucking company can dispose of them. The sooner you have a truck accident attorney, the sooner he or she will start to collect, preserve, and examine evidence related to your semi-truck crash. Since any individual such as the truck driver, the trucking company, the owner of the trailer, or even the manufacturer of a defective product such as the truck’s tires or brakes, etc. can be held liable for damages, the more evidence your truck accident injury lawyer can access, the better.
