Investigating A Truck Accident Claim in McKinney Texas

Investigating a truck accident claim in Texas starts with an experienced team of accident attorneys that understand all the variables of a crash involving a passenger car and 18-wheeler. The McCraw Law Group has both the resources and experience to fully investigate all three aspects of a trucking accident claim:

  • Collision evidence
  • Trucking Industry evidence
  • Injury information

If you or a loved one has been injured by an 18-wheeler, don’t let the trucking company or insurance company take the lead in your crash investigation. They will focus on reducing liability and cutting your post-crash compensation. The McCraw Law Group will protect your rights and advocate for a settlement that covers all damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and mental anguish.

Investigating A Truck Accident Claim – Collision Evidence

Collision evidence is the first type of information that needs to be collected. Collision evidence is all the information that can be gathered at the scene of the accident. This includes:

  • Police accident report
  • Accident reconstruction evidence
  • Eye witness accounts
  • Photos of vehicle damage
  • Video of vehicle damage
  • Roadway damage and debris
  • Weather information

Trucking Industry Evidence

Truck drivers and trucking companies are governed by strict state and federal regulations. Evidence that applies to the trucking industry is vital to learning more about the driver, the company, and if they have complied with trucking laws. Some of the trucking industry evidence that The McCraw Law Group accident attorneys will fight to obtain while investigating a truck accident claim includes:

  • Dispatch records
  • Data recorders
  • Service and Maintenance Logs
  • Inspection reports
  • Driver employment information
  • Records of traffic violations
  • Trucking company safety records
  • Driver criminal record

Trucking companies are notorious for attempting to “lose” some of this data after a trucking crash. Evidence that might show negligence on the part of the driver or trucking company is often hidden and difficult to access. The injury attorneys at The McCraw Law Group are aware of these tactics and have strategies of their own for extracting trucking industry evidence after a crash.

Injury Information

It is important to gather information on the type of severity of injuries sustained in a trucking accident. Knowing the extent of your injuries can help determine the cost of medical damages that should be recovered in a settlement. If you have been involved in a trucking accident, common injuries fall into four categories:

  • Back, Neck and Spine Injuries
  • Broken Bones and Fractures
  • Head Trauma
  • Burns and Cuts
