Trucking accidents are not like car crashes. The rules of the road are the same, but there are regulations that the truck industry has to abide by. A Chicago truck accident lawyer needs to know these restrictions.
Most trucking companies and insurers have “go” teams that arrive at the scenes of crashes. As Chicago truck accident lawyer Barry Doyle explains in this video, he has represented clients who have been photographed at the scene by this “go” team. The pictures were taken while the state trooper was busy writing a ticket to the trucker who caused the wreck.
It is important that you hire a lawyer who knows how to properly research and investigate truck accident cases. The insurance company will be aggressively defending the claim.
Trucking companies have to keep records for a certain time period, but they will be counting down until they can destroy the information related to the accident. Therefore, make sure the attorney you hire knows how to document these cases.
