Question: What steps should I take after a truck accident?
When people call our office and say they were in a commercial vehicle accident in Texas, one of the things they want to know is how the process works. The first and most important step is investigation. We need to get our people out to the scene. We need to take measurements. We need to take photographs. We need to inspect the other vehicle. We need to get the black box – it’s called the EDR – of the truck so we can see how fast they were going. We need to get driver’s logs. We need to find out if this driver was driving more than he should have driven.
The critical step is investigation. Then you get your case going and get into the court room. You start holding them accountable. But the first and most important step is investigation.
