Every case is different. Some accidents are more serious than others. Your attorney will gather as much evidence as possible, including the police report, photographs, witness statements, and available public records.
In the more serious trucking accidents, your attorney will thoroughly investigate the driver’s background as well as the truck’s mechanical safety records.
Additionally, your attorney may employ the help of an expert who will inspect the truck and be prepared to testify about its mechanical safety should that be a factor in your case.
