After a truck accident, depending upon the sophistication of the particular truck company, they’re going to be out to conduct an investigation. Often what we see is that in states like New York, New Jersey there are actually special units of the state police department for investigating truck accidents and bus accidents and things like that, commercial vehicle accidents. And they’ll be out to the scene to gather evidence. The representatives from trucking companies are also going to be very interested in getting to the scene to do their investigation. They may be taking information out of like a black box, we always hear about black boxes in airline catastrophes and airline accidents. That same technology is used in many of the trucks that travel across our highways around the country. Those black boxes possess a lot of vital information for figuring out how a truck accident occurred. Again, it’s important to preserve that type of evidence, and if you’re not reaching out to a skilled lawyer early after a truck accident, important evidence that may be on that black box can be lost and the understanding of how this accident happened in proving that the truck was responsible for your accident can be lost forever.
