Quick Action Is Crucial In Truck Collisions

Accidents involving semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles are serious. They most often lead to severe injuries given the size of the vehicles, speed and force of the collision. Victims who are injured often need lifelong, expensive medical care.

The lawyers at Sarkisian Sarkisian & Associates can help you get the full and fair compensation you need to treat injuries now and in the future. With 65-plus years of combined experience, we know how important it is to begin working on your case immediately.

Every Day That Goes By Means More Crucial Evidence Could Be Lost

In an ideal world, everyone would care more about helping those they injure than protecting themselves from liability. Unfortunately, this is not the world we live in. Some drivers, trucking companies and insurance carriers intentionally destroy or lose evidence, take evasive measures or do other things that can harm your case, including:

  • Deleting black box information
  • Losing or modifying driver logbooks
  • Removing cargo from overweight trucks
  • Delaying sharing evidence until the time to file has passed
  • Adjusters who claim the company won't pay unless you give a recorded statement, even if you are still in the hospital
  • Hire private investigators to follow you, secretly video tape you or find evidence on your social media sites that they can use against you

Even when all parties act in good faith, evidence can still get lost or destroyed in personal injury cases. The simple fact that highways need to be cleared means that you cannot preserve the scene until the trial and crucial pieces of evidence can get lost when damaged vehicles are transported to alternative locations. Rain can even wash away evidence.
