I would say that the most important reason to contact an attorney as soon as possible, if you’re injured in a truck wreck, is so that the evidence at the scene of the wreck can be preserved and investigated. And also so that steps can be taken to ensure that the trucking company preserves evidence. If someone who’s hurt in a truck wreck initially thinks that it may not be a situation where they need a lawyer to protect their interests, even in a situation where a normal person would say the fault for causing the wreck is clear, a rear-end wreck for instance. There are ways that the at fault drivers insurance company will try to either deny fault or minimize their liability. So, for instance the fault for causing the wreck may be clear, but a defense in that situation could be that the truck company says that you’re just not injured.
