Investigation is crucial after a trucking accident

Delivery trucks, semi trucks and other commercial vehicles can be found all around Staten Island any day of the week. These drivers must drive in a safe manner or they risk having an accident. When innocent people are harmed in an accident cause by one of these commercial vehicles, claims for compensation often arise. We can help victims of commercial vehicle accidents seek the compensation they deserve.

After the accident, you should obtain medical care if you were injured. Your next step will likely be considering claims for compensation. When it comes to seeking compensation based on a commercial vehicle accident, rapid investigation is the key.

Many of the facts related to the accident can be gathered from the log that the driver is required to keep. This log can let us know if the driver was following the federal guidelines for rest, driving and work times. If the driver wasn't, that might be included in the claim we file on your behalf.

Another part of the investigation that is important is the police report from the accident. Going over that report can let us know if the police found anything that we could use in your claim. For example, if the driver was on a cellphone, that information could be a crucial component of your case.

Because there is a chance of evidence being altered and memories changing, it is vital that we start investigating your case as soon as possible after the accident. By taking swift action, you can minimize the risk that evidence will be compromised or end up missing.
