Securing Essential Semi-Truck Accident Evidence for Your Mississippi Truck Accident Injury or Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Truck crashes kill thousands of people on the road every year. The massive size of commercial trucks means that these collisions are complex and devastating. In many cases, multiple vehicles will be involved making it difficult to sort through the cause of the wreck.
Evidence is a key factor in truck crash litigation, but in some instances, that evidence can begin to disappear quickly following the incident.
In some cases, trucking companies will intentionally destroy or erase evidence that is damaging to them. Engaging in such destruction can result in criminal charges, but that does not mean that companies will not attempt to do so.
It is important to note that in the aftermath of a wreck, the trucking company, its insurers, and attorneys will be working rapidly to minimize the company’s exposure. Those injured or who lost a loved one in a truck accident should speak to an experienced attorney immediately to ensure that steps are taken to preserve the evidence and prevent it from disappearing.
Trucking companies have the legal right to destroy their logbooks and other information after a certain amount of time. Electronic data may be deleted in a matter of weeks. Following a crash, a company and insurance representatives may engage in negotiations with the victims. While the data should be maintained through this process, if the negotiations drag on for months, which is possible, the company may be getting rid of evidence that would support the victim’s case.
If you are injured in a truck crash, hiring an experienced truck crash attorney can help preserve your claim and the evidence you need to win your case. Your 18-wheeler accident lawyer will be able to help advocate for you and protect you throughout the process, explain your rights and legal options.
