After a truck accident, trucking company personnel quickly converge on the scene to gather evidence for their defense. I match the immediacy of their response. I measure and photograph the scene of the accident to preserve such crucial evidence as skid marks and vehicle positioning. I talk to witnesses while their memories are fresh. I also take notice of any special circumstances that would indicate whether driver intoxication or fatigue, improper truck loading, or mechanical failure played a role in the collision.
