It may sound self-serving that a law firm that specializes in practicing personal injury law would say that the first thing to do after a serious trucking accident is to find the best Arizona truck accident lawyer you can find. The reality is that there are far too many lawyers that tell people they must hire an attorney immediately when this is not true. The problem with over-the-road 18-wheeler tractor-trailer truck accident cases is that trucking companies are extremely organized and start putting together their defense team often times literally at the site of the accident.
While a typical car accident case will not have a lawyer involved for potentially many months after the incident, we have had many situations where our clients have suffered very serious injury or been killed in truck accident cases, and in many of those serious injury truck accident situations, the trucking company’s lawyer was out at the scene before the police even finished taking photographs. We have had situations where the trucking company took more photographs than the police took.
Because of the incredible efficiency with which these trucking companies organize, trying to hire an experienced specialist in personal injury for a truck accident case as soon as possible can be vital. At a minimum, it is extremely important to speak with an experienced injury lawyer to make sure your rights are being protected, to make sure the trucking company is not destroying documents that can tend to prove that they were at fault for the accident or, worse, that their driver was driving in excess of the hours allowed under federal law.
