If you are involved in an accident with a tractor trailer you should be aware that the trucking companies have lawyers and investigators at their immediate disposal. Most often, before the wreckage is even cleared, the insurance company's accident investigator is on the scene taking pictures and examining the wreckage.
Many times, the trucking company will have the truck moved away from the accident scene within hours of the crash. It is important for the injured victim to have the evidence preserved--that includes the driver who caused the accident.
Soon after the accident, you as the victim may be contacted by the trucking company's insurance attorney. You may be offered what appears to be a fair settlement for you injuries. This is when you need a lawyer.
