While we understand that pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of your loved one may be the farthest thing from your mind right now, we also are here to help you.
Trucking companies move fast following a crash involving one of their trucks and truck drivers. They quickly try to gather any evidence that could help their case or push some of the blame onto your loved one. They have large insurance companies on their side who try to protect them and limit their liability. This is why it is critical to have someone experienced on your side to investigate if any of the following actions by the other driver led to the crash:
- Texting while driving
- Other distracted driving
- Driving drunk
