Truck Accident Attorney
If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, hire a truck accident attorney from Parke Gordon Law Firm to receive a fair settlement. Semi truck companies are required by federal law to keep documents about their trucks and their drivers but after a period of time they may destroy those documents. You need to hire a semi truck attorney immediately after a truck accident. If the driver of the commercial truck was negligent, evidence needs to be preserved that can be used to demonstrate that the trucking company and its driver are responsible. An attorney can protect your rights by sending a special letter called a spoliation letter to the trucking company. After receipt of the letter, the trucking company will be forced to preserve the documents. If the documents show a pattern of willful and reckless behavior, you may be entitled to recover punitive damages.
Do not hurt your chances of obtaining a full recovery by waiting to hire a semi truck accident attorney. After the trucking company has destroyed valuable evidence that you could have used to prove your case, you may not receive as great of a settlement.
