The cause of a big rig crash can impact compensation claims

On Behalf of | Jan 1, 2016 | Truck Accidents

As we discussed last week, trucker fatigue is a leading cause of truck accidents. It isn’t, however, the only cause of trucking accidents. There are several different factors that can contribute to a trucking accident. If you have been involved in a trucking accident, one of the most important components of seeking compensation for your injuries is determining the cause of the accident. We can help you to do just that by investigating the semi-truck accident that led to your injuries.

During the investigation into the accident, we can look into all of the factors that might have led to the accident. We can try to determine if the driver was intoxicated, distracted, fatigued or negligent. We can look into equipment failures, too-tight scheduling, improperly secured loads and a host of other possible causes of truck accidents.

We know that trying to think about investigating the accident and going through all of the legal work is a lot while you are trying to heal. We can handle the investigation and legal work for you so that you can focus on your recovery plan. You getting the medical care you need is one of the top priorities you should have after you have been involved in a trucking accident.

Once you have obtained medical care, you should document what you can remember about the accident. Write down everything you remember. This can help you to ensure that your memory doesn’t diminish as time passes. When you decide you are ready to seek compensation, we can help you from the start of your case until it is all over.
