The Houston Auto Accidents Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office last week described actions that happen at the scene of an accident when an injured party in a car has an accident with a big truck. As we have outlined before in this blog, as in any other accident, witness testimony and physical evidence at the truck accident scene are crucial to recovery on the personal injury claim. As difficult as it may be when injured at an accident scene the injured party at the hands of the truck driver must try to get photos of the vehicles and the vehicles positions after the accident. Names and numbers of any witnesses must be obtained when possible. Unfortunately if you are being carted off to the hospital it may make it impossible to get these pieces of evidence. Of course the truck driver is fine and his company representatives are called to the scene immediately where they can alter the scene n their favor and keep witnesses not in their favor from talking to the police officer. We have had former clients smart enough to call us from the scene of an accident where we advise as to what to do or where we can send our own investigator to the scene to secure evidence. Also in cases of severe injury DeSimone Law Office will retain the services of an accident reconstruction expert. This individual is expertly trained in reconstructing accidents after the fact and can overcome the items on the police report that are in favor of the truck driver that are obviously a result of the trucking company representatives controlling the scene of the accident.
If you have been in an accident with a truck, contact the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office immediately. We will tale the action necessary to make sure you obtain the justice you deserve.
