Big trucks are everywhere. They are an important part of this country's interstate commerce. When a semi is involved in an accident, there is usually major damage done. From total destruction of personal property to catastrophic injuries and death. This is one reason the Federal Government, Kentucky and Ohio have put into place regulations that are required to be followed by both the owner and the operator of the semi truck.
The owners and operators are required to maintain certain records for a certain period of time. After the minimum time frame has been met, the records can be destroyed. This is why it is important to hire an attorney to represent your interests almost immediately. These records are extremely important in truck litigation and if not protected, they will not be available when needed.
When injured in an accident, a loved one's medical condition is certainly the most important concern you should have. Unfortunately, the trucking company and its insurance company focuses on protecting the trucking company, its driver and the insurance company's interests. They are often represented at the accident scene by insurance adjustors and risk managers. They take pictures, collect evidence and take statements from witnesses as soon as they can.
Because of these tactics, attorneys representing injured people often file suit within days of the accident to preserve evidence. If the evidence is not preserved, it can and most likely will be destroyed. This is why you should immediately contact the Law Office of Milton S.
