Every day you wait to contact an attorney is another day the trucking company and its insurer are collecting evidence and using their considerable resources in an effort to defend themselves or minimize your potential claims. Furthermore, the Department of Transportation (DOT) rules and regulations require the trucking company and driver to retain documents such as logs and vehicle inspections reports, but only for a short period of time. Without an attorney to stop them, the trucking company and truck driver often destroy these critical pieces of evidence as soon as the law allows. Additionally, virtually every commercial motor vehicle electronically stores data that is accessible by computer download and may provide evidence of the driver’s routes and drive time prior to the collision; prior unsafe operation by the driver; and speed and braking data for the truck prior to and at the time of impact. The Francis Firm regularly utilizes a multitude of trucking experts that can access and preserve this data, but only if you contact us as soon as possible after a collision. The longer you delay in contacting The Francis Firm, the more difficult it becomes to collect and preserve evidence critical to your case.
