18 Wheeler Crashes
18 Wheeler Crash in Plano, TX Lawyer
Whenever you're involved in a crash with an 18-wheeler, remember that from the second that crash happens, the other driver will be working against you. His company will be working against you.
You'll probably see him on the phone at the scene and he may make a call to the police, but the very first call he's going to make is going to be to his supervisor to get their accident investigation team mobilized.
If you don't get taken away in an ambulance before they show up, you'll probably see them out there talking to the police, taking photographs, doing the things that they need to do to properly protect their defense. They're working immediately to try to build evidence against your case.
You want to get on the phone with a law firm that is experienced in handling these sorts of 18-wheeler crashes to make sure that you have some way of preserving evidence and working on your claim.
There are a lot of pieces of evidence that can be lost and destroyed very quickly, not even intentionally, many things just get washed away by the rain or something of that nature. That's why you want to make sure that you have somebody working quickly to decide, do we need to get an accident reconstruction team out on the scene immediately? What evidence needs to be preserved, and moving on it right away?
