Some common mistakes that I see from clients who were involved in a big truck accident are failure to preserve information and evidence that might exist at the scene. Among those categories are photographs of the vehicles, of the roadway, any skid marks, the layout of the road, the lanes, the intersection if necessary. Preservation or lack thereof of getting information of witnesses, both name, numbers, and addresses. Addresses can be critical because people change their phone number, but if they have an address, we can find them historically.
Another common mistake that we see from clients who were involved in big truck accidents is when they reach out to the insurance companies themselves. Oftentimes, they give certain statements or are asked questions in a certain way that are specifically geared to favor the insurance companies and maybe skew or twist a version of the story. Having the client let us handle all of those communications is critically important.
