Accidents involving trucks can be complicated if you do not have the right truck accident lawyer representing your interests. Trucking insurers know the exposure faced and invest a lot of money, time and resources regarding these claims. Accordingly, if you are a victim of a truck accident, you need to have sufficient evidence to successfully convince the insurance companies for settlement or the jury at trial that you should get money for the injuries you have sustained and the pain and suffering you have endured.
Thorough truck accident investigations help to dig deeper into the facts of the accident, leading to discovery of the following information:
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, (FMCSA) rules require that each truck driver log into his driving time through 49 CFR § 395.8. The driver also has to list each stop made during their travels. All of these things can be done through electronic means. The rules play a major role in minimizing driver fatigue, which is one of the major causes of trucking accidents. Therefore, driver log analysis may show if the Rules were violated, and if such a violation led to the accident.
To suppress evidence, the trucking companies can move quickly to remove the truck from the scene of the accident. A timely investigation should therefore be conducted to avoid evidence disappearing. Pictures are also helpful because they will show the extent of the damage done and also show the points of impact.
