It goes without saying that trucking companies try to hide evidence, to protect their money when their large trucks cause collisions with passenger vehicles. Michigan roads are full of large commercial trucks, tractor-trailers, and eighteen-wheelers, which can weigh 10 to 18 times more than a regular passenger car, and therefore often cause catastrophic injuries or death to people. Trucking companies know they have to pay multi-million dollars in lawsuits because of the resultant injuries they cause. Usually, immediately after a serious collision happens, the trucking company will send an experienced team of lawyers, experts, and investigators to the scene of the accident. The trucking company tries to disguise this team by referring to them as the crash team. The goal of the crash team is to find and secure evidence favorable to the trucking company. They will look at the evidence in the view of the trucking company and try to hide or diminish evidence that may lead to liability for the truck driver and the trucking company.
To counter these efforts, people involved in a trucking accident, should immediately hire an experienced and powerful Michigan truck accident lawyer, if you or your family have been injured or killed by a commercial truck accident. At The Joseph Dedvukaj Firm we have a winning team of attorneys who will investigate the scene of the accident, immediately, from your point of view and with your best interest in mind. We never trust the truck company’s so called crash team, and neither should you. We are most powerful truck accident attorneys that will work with our team of chosen experts and investigators to quickly collect evidence before it becomes tampered, lost, compromised, or destroyed. You will need us to investigate the facts and circumstances of your collision to determine whether it was caused by truck driver’s negligence or trucking company negligence.
Why hiring the right 18-wheeler and semi-truck accident attorney is important?
We never take the trucking company’s word for it. Would you? You want your own legal team to conduct our own investigation before the trucking company has an opportunity to cover up evidence.
We get our legal team on the ground to gain access to the truck’s Event Data Recorder, which is similar to the “black box” you often hear about on airplanes. The black box may contain important information about the truck’s speed, throttle position, brake and pedal application, speed, steering, braking, acceleration, seatbelt use, and, in the event of a crash, force of impact and whether airbags deployed, and clutch status.
We know it’s important for our legal team to inspect the truck before it is moved, repaired, or destroyed because the nature and extent of the damage to the truck will provide valuable evidence as to how and why the collision occurred.
We know the debris on or near the road should be inspected before it is moved or cleaned up. Your legal team will document and photograph the debris in the very same way authorities investigate in a criminal case. It is important because it may provide evidence which proves details as to how, where, and why the collision occurred.
We know the skid marks on the road [or the lack of skid marks] should be documented before the roadway or reopened, heavy rain, ice, or snow falls because those skid marks [or the lack of skid marks] provide valuable evidence about the speed of the truck, whether the driver used the brakes prior to impact, and, in some cases, whether or not the driver was fatigued or distracted at the time of the crash.
We know witnesses if they exist should be interviewed before they disappear or forget.
We Hold Truckers Accountable For Their Negligence
We are committed to holding truck drivers accountable for driving errors, drugs, or alcohol use; reckless driving; excessive speed; using a handheld device texting while driving; falling asleep; distraction or fatigue. You will want us to consult with your doctors to prove your injuries and establish the kind of medical care you will need, such as rehabilitation, reconstructive surgeries, physical therapy, and long-term care. We will hire medical experts if we deem necessary. We are dedicated to fighting to secure compensation for your present and any future excess medical expenses caused by the truck accident. We will work with economists and vocational experts to understand economic losses and how your injuries have affected your ability to work or find employment. You will want use to pursue maximum compensation against any liable parties for your past and future economic losses, and pain and suffering.
