Tractor Trailer Truck Accident Investigations
The Tractor Trailer Accident Attorneys at Fernandez & Hernandez will often employ several different types of experts in the investigation of any tractor trailer accident. The first level involves private investigators. These individuals can assist the lawyer in gathering evidence such as records, photographs and measurements. The investigative team is then expanded to include an accident reconstruction expert. Depending on the facts of the accident, other experts may also be retained such as:
- biomechanical experts
- mechanical engineers
- human behavior experts
- construction engineers
A team is assembled by the truck accident lawyer and then the attorney can begin to get an idea about the causes of the accident as well as any contributing factors. Other influences in the determination of liability or fault in truck accidents may include, product failure or distracted driving.
The operator of the tractor trailer involved will be investigated. Not only will that driver’s actions at the time of the accident be thoroughly examined, but the driver’s history will be researched throughly. In some cases, the history of the driver clearly indicates that the trucking company or owner of the truck should have never hired that driver. In some cases, the trucking company failed to provide adequate training for the driver. In other cases the driver’s history may not be a relevant but the trucking company failed to supervise the driver appropriately.
There are many areas of potential fault or liability for the truck accident attorney to consider. A failure by the owner or operator of a truck may have caused or contributed to your injuries or the loss of life suffered by your family. That is why the investigation of your tractor trailer accident must be thorough, competent and professional.
