Knowing What to Do after a Semi Crash

18 Wheeler Accident Attorney in Houston

Tractor trailer accidents are often catastrophic, and there really is no way to prepare yourself for the aftermath. If you’ve been injured in such an accident, seek immediate medical attention and then retain a knowledgeable 18-wheeler collision lawyer. Immediacy is key to obtaining justice in a semi accident; do not delay.

Proving Liability

Not all truck accidents are created equal, and the truck driver/trucking company is not always at fault. When they are, however, it’s necessary to fall upon the task of proving liability. If taken to a court of law, you must be able to prove your claim with a preponderance of the evidence. This means that the evidence must show that it is more likely than not that the truck driver or the trucking company caused the crash that caused you to be injured.

Critical Evidence

Your truck crash lawyer is essential to your evidence gathering efforts. The trucking company and, by default, the big-rig driver are going to deflect blame. And they will immediately begin their own careful investigation – replete with expert testimony, depositions, and delay tactics. It’s imperative that you retain experienced legal counsel that will quickly get down to the crucial business of investigating your accident. Time is of the essence. Don’t wait around for all the pieces to fall into place; instead, proactively engage your own legal team that will obtain evidence to support your claim and to provide you with just compensation
