What to Expect During a Truck Accident Investigation

Truck accidents often result incatastrophic injuries anddeaths, making them among the most serious—and complex—of all motor vehicle accidents. Although the sheer size of large commercial trucks is one factor in the general severity of these accidents, it is not the only one. Various forms of negligence, from truck driver error to insufficient truck maintenance to improper hiring practices by the trucking company, also play a role in these devastating crashes.

Because truck accidents are so much more complex than most standard car accidents, they nearly always require extensive investigations when it comes to determining the cause of the crash and, most importantly, who is liable for the victim’s damages. These investigations involve analyzing crash data and other evidence to reconstruct what happened and whether any underlying factors contributed to the accident.

Who Conducts the Truck Accident Investigation?

After an accident, the Florida Highway Patrol or local law enforcement may conduct an investigation into what occurred. Additionally, the trucking company will almost certainly send out its own investigators to review the accident and collect evidence. If you were involved in a large truck accident, it is critical that you seek legal help, as your attorney can also gather evidence and complete an independent investigation into the crash.

The trucking company and its insurance provider will not be looking out for your best interests. Instead, they will try to minimize their liability and look for evidence that supports their position. We strongly recommend that you reach out to the team at The Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. right away to learn how our truck accident attorneys can help with your case.
