What’s the problem?
Accidents involving 18 wheelers occur for a variety of reasons. Whether the cause of the accident seems obvious or is difficult to determine, a thorough investigation is almost always necessary.
Most trucking companies and their insurance companies have accident investigation teams that go to the scene immediately after an accident. Their job is to find evidence that supports the truck driver’s version of how the accident happened. Of course, the driver’s story may differ from your recollection of how the accident happened. To protect your rights, you need an investigator who will look for and document evidence that supports your version of the events.
What should I do if I’m involved in an accident with a big rig?
First and foremost, never give an oral or written statement about your accident to a trucking company representative, its insurance company, or its lawyer until after you get advice from a tractor trailer accident lawyer yourself. Do not discuss how your accident happened with anyone representing the interests of a trucking company or its driver. This is because you may be asked leading questions that are designed to confuse you and elicit answers that can be twisted around unfairly to make it look like the accident was your fault.
If a trucking company representative, lawyer, or insurance company requests a statement from you, contact Schmidt & Clark, LLP before you answer any questions.
