Investigation Of A Truck Accident

 

A semi truck, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler usually involves an articulated vehicle meaning a cab and a trailer.  The investigation of a truck accident is much different from that of a car accident because of the differences in the vehicles and also the differences in the rules applicable to commercial drivers and their trucks.

 

Generally, a truck driver must comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which dictate a minimum level of acceptable conduct on the part of the truck driver and the trucking company.  Often, after a serious truck accident the condition of the truck itself can be an important factor in the investigation and analysis of the cause of the wreck.

 

You can be assured that the trucking company will have its insurer at the scene of an eighteen-wheeler accident shortly after the crash.  A recent trend has been that the trucking company (and it’s insurer) seeks to put the tractor and trailer back in service as soon as possible after a serious accident, if the truck can be repaired.

 

This trend has been effective in preventing the victims from obtaining necessary information regarding the condition of the truck prior to its repair.  For the unsuspecting accident victim who delays in contacting a truck accident lawyer, it can substantially impact the ability of their chosen counsel to prosecute a truck accident lawsuit.

 

If you or family member have been seriously injured in a truck accident in Austin, it is best that you seek out and experienced and reputable Austin truck accident lawyer as soon as possible after the crash.
