Investigating Arkansas Truck Accidents - You Need an Experienced Jonesboro Attorney on Your Side
McDaniel Law Firm, PLC understands how difficult life can become after a tractor-trailer accident, but it's critical to take legal action promptly. Why? One main reason is that you will need to have a truck accident attorney in Jonesboro investigating the crash on your behalf. The trucking companies will send investigators to the scene of the accident within hours if not sooner. Their goal is to scour the scene for evidence that might limit the trucking company's liability. In other words, they want to minimize the value of your claim so they can save money. That's why you should contact McDaniel Law Firm, PLC right now if you or a loved one was injured or a loved one was killed in a trucking accident.
Investigating trucking accidents can be a complicated process. Many trucking company reps handle the investigations of these trucking crashes, as do trucking company owners, their lawyers and their insurance company claims adjusters. Trucking crash settlements and lawsuits can be complex since there are many state and federal regulations that overlap. These rules and regulations can be difficult to navigate without an experienced tractor-trailer accident lawyer on your side.
We are experienced Arkansas truck accident attorneys who know how to use our resources to conduct a proper investigation on behalf of injury victims and families who have lost loved ones. Whether you are pursuing a truck accident personal injury claim or a truck accident wrongful death claim, you can count on McDaniel Law Firm, PLC.
How our Jonesboro truck accident attorneys investigate truck companies
Unfortunately, in many tractor-trailer accidents, vital evidence disappears or is destroyed soon after the trucking collision occurs. These companies also are often difficult to track down. Sometimes they have offices in another state or country. That's why it's so important to speak with an attorney at McDaniel Law Firm, PLC soon after your accident. Timing is critical when dealing with any type of truck accident. Here are some of the types of evidence that we begin pursuing as soon as possible after taking on a tractor-trailer trucking accident case:
- Safety records of both trucker and big rig
- Evidence of trucker's alcohol or substance abuse problems
- Trucker's driving log, which can reveal probable trucker fatigue
- Breathalyzer results, items in driver's cab or truck-stop security cams
- All truck and trailer maintenance records available, in case there was trucking company negligence
- Truck black box and GPS-locator, which may reveal truck speed at the time of the accident and how long the big rig had been on the road.
