Injured in a Truck Accident? Our Attorneys Stand Up to the Trucking Companies & Defend Your Rights as a Victim
Trucking companies have teams of representatives in the field who will often arrive at the scene of an accident while emergency medical personnel are still trying to help the injured. These representatives serve only the interests of the trucking companies, and have been kwown to steer law enforcement officials away from evidence and information that would be helpful for the injured victim. You can combat these underhanded tactics by securing the services of a tenacious attorney who has experience standing up to the trucking companies and their insurance representatives. You can hire Alvin Wolff.
Your Claim Depends on Understanding the Unique Complexities of Trucking Cases
In addition to trucking company representatives deliberately destroying or obscuring damning evidence, evidence is also often lost or destroyed as a general matter of course. If the scene of the accident isn’t secured properly, or is cleaned up prematurely, many details crucial to your case may be lost. The longer you wait to begin preparing your case, the more time the trucking company has to build theirs. When you hire the attorneys of Alvin Wolff Jr. & Associates we begin immediately collecting essential evidence, including driver's logs and electronic control modules (also known as ECMs or black boxes).
ECMs record speed, braking, RPMs, and gear shifting on the truck that was involved in your accident. Obtaining logs and ECMs is important, because these devices are often used to prove liability on the trucker or trucking company. Trucking companies and their employees need to be held accountable for their violations, and utilizing ECM data is one way to do so.
