The most important thing to know when you are injured by a commercial motor vehicle is DO NOT hire an attorney that will treat your case like a typical car wreck case. This IS NOT a typical car wreck. The amount of evidence involved is substantially more than a typical car wreck, the type of experts necessary to prove your case are substantially different and the cost of litigation and experts can be substantially more.
Commercial vehicle and trucking cases require a different strategy from the very beginning. The evidence available in a trucking case such as electronic monitoring units, driving logs and dispatch records are required to be maintained for a very short period of time and can be destroyed if your attorney does not act fast to demand that this evidence is preserved. This evidence is necessary to not only prove the driver is at fault, but it can also lead to other potential defendants, it can assist your attorney in developing alternative theories of liability, and it can disprove the insurance company’s claim that the collision is your fault or partially your fault.
