        Should I wait to hire a lawyer for my truck accident claim?


        We recently received a phone call from a lady wanting to know how long she should wait before she hired a lawyer to help her with her 18-wheeler accident. This is a very common question that people have when they have been involved in a trucking accident. The answer to that question is you should hire an attorney immediately. The reason is that the attorney needs to be able to investigate what happened, and the best time to do that is as soon as possible after the collision itself. That allows the lawyer to go to the scene, investigate the scene, take photographs, look for skid marks or other markings in the road, and maybe even look for witnesses that may have been on the scene.

        The other thing is the lawyer will have the ability to take photographs of the vehicles involved before they get repaired or sent off to some unknown location. Also, truck accident cases are unique in that most trucks have data recorders or black boxes. An attorney can hire someone to go and download that information. That data will tell us the speed of the truck, whether it was turning, and a lot of other information that may be very helpful in showing that the truck caused the accident that caused you to be injured. Also, the lawyer can interview witnesses. If you wait three months, a year, those witnesses will not remember what they saw or heard, or at least their memory will not be as strong as a couple of days after the crash.

        If you have been involved in a trucking accident, it’s very important that you hire a lawyer immediately to fully investigate the crash on your behalf. If you contact us for a free consultation, we’d be happy to discuss this or any other questions that you may have.
