Investigating Truck Accidents

An investigation of a truck accident is a search for answers. Why was a careless or exhausted truck driver allowed to be on the road? Who is responsible for the losses you have suffered?

We have the experience and resources needed to build a strong case of liability against the trucking company. We offer a free lawyer consultation to discuss your case. We service clients in Newport Beach, Anaheim and other communities in Orange County, California.

Truck Accident Investigation Process

In the aftermath of a truck accident, the insurance company representing the trucking company will usually send an investigator to the scene within hours. However, this will not be an unbiased investigation. They will be looking for ways to avoid financial responsibility for the significant harm you have suffered.

To protect your interests, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible so that evidence of truck driver and trucking company negligence can be collected and preserved. Examples of negligence include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Weight violations
  • Improper loading/unsecured loads
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Truck driver speeding
  • Truck driver history, including past accidents and violations
  • Negligent hiring
  • Truck driver drug use

We often use experts such as accident reconstructionists who can help determine how the accident happened based on skid marks, vehicle damage and other evidence collected at the scene. Highway patrol officers often hear one version of how the accident happened: the version told by the truck driver. The people in the other vehicle are usually too injured to say anything. Our goal is to make sure trucking companies and truck drivers are held accountable for the damage they have caused.
