Common Mistakes After a Truck Accident

Avoid these common mistakes after a truck accident in Augusta to make sure you are eligible to recover the full compensation you deserve.

What mistakes should I avoid after a truck accident in Augusta?

I met with a brother and sister, from Waynesboro, Georgia, recently who were involved in a bad trucking accident case outside of Waynesboro. They waited three months before contacting me about their case. It was a big mistake not to contact a trucking accident lawyer who tries these types of cases immediately after the wreck. If you’re reading this, you may be looking for tips on how to handle a trucking accident case. I’ll tell you what I told them.

By waiting three months, they gave the trucking company time to destroy important evidence related to the speed and braking capacity of the truck. After three months, the trucking company did not have to keep the logbooks of the driver which showed how many hours the truck driver was driving per day in violation of federal trucking rules. Thank goodness we were able to get fuel receipts that showed how many miles he was driving in between gas stops. We were able to help the client. In the future, however, I advise all clients to contact a trucking accident attorney so that evidence can be preserved and they can present their case in the most valuable light to a trucking insurance company or to the jury.
