Investigating The Accident, Assembling The Evidence

Documents often tell the story in an accident involving a commercial truck.  Following a devastating truck accident, those involved may offer conflicting accounts of what happened. The truck driver, trucking company and other defendants often try to minimize any fault of their own and cast blame on the innocent victims. A thorough investigation can shed light on the circumstances leading up to the truck accident.

Painting The Picture

No investigation is complete without examining the documentation surrounding the accident. The trucking industry is flooded with documentation. Most day-to-day events in the job of a truck driver will leave a chain of documents, including:

  • Truck driver logs
  • Navigation system records
  • Maintenance and repair records
  • Inspection records
  • Dispatch records
  • Bills of lading
  • Weight tickets
  • Receipts
  • Personnel files
  • Driving records
  • “Black box” data from onboard systems

Like pieces of a puzzle, these various forms of documentation can collectively paint an accurate picture of what really happened before, during and after the accident. Locating the evidence and making those connections, however, require experience. Your attorney must know what to look for and where to find it.

Tell The Story

Once this evidence has been gathered and pieced together, another challenge lies in presenting the evidence to the judge or jury. Convincing these decision-makers of the truth requires more than just a detached, objective analysis. It requires telling a compelling story.
