Giving Truck Accident Lawyers the Evidence They Need

“Because of the complexities of trucking cases, Whiting Law Group formed the trucking accident emergency response team so its expert investigators can gather all the evidence within days and sometimes hours of a trucking accident. Preserving evidence is critical in determining negligence, and all the violations of the Federal Motor Safety Regulations which govern truck drivers and truck companies conduct and quite often results in higher recoveries for our clients as otherwise key data can be lost or destroyed,” said Tim Whiting.

According to Mr. Whiting, trucking accident cases have multiple details that maybe overlooked but are crucial in building a strong case. The Whiting Law Group trucking accident emergency response team has worked with the top experts and investigators in the country who can be mobilized to a truck accident scene as soon as the clients inform Whiting Law Group’s team of truck accident lawyers that they been a victim of a truck accident. Whiting Law Group’s team of expert investigators immediately begin photographing the roadway, searching for remaining debris, obtaining full measurements of the roadway, skid or braking marks, photographing speed limit signs and any caution signs, interviewing all witnesses at the scene of the crash and visiting where the vehicles involved in the collision are stored. Our response team immediately begins downloading the electronic control module evidence that was in the truck which records the speed and braking and the engine data that is invaluable to determining how the trucks was traveling at the time of the crash. Whiting Law Group’s Trucking Accident Emergency Response Team also inspects the truck for any federal motor safety carrier violations and documents all the motor carrier numbers on the truck and trailers to determine the details of who may have been involved in the ownership and or the operation of these trucks. This information is then used to conduct a full corporate background check on the truck company and the truck driver who may share in the fault for the crash.
