Please see our blog post on Texas Truck Accidents.  Collection of evidence is important in Trucking accidents. Trucking companies will start collecting evidence immediately.  In fact,  most drivers are taught to call the trucking company immediately after and accident. If possible, trucking companies will send a representative to the scene as soon as possible. For this reason, you should hire a lawyer with whom you are comfortable as soon as possible after an accident.  Among others things, the lawyer will be able to send paperwork to the trucking company warning it not to destroy or spoil the evidence.  You may also view our personal injury posts Documenting Personal Injury Damages and Car and Trucking Accidents – Making an Insurance Claim.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) and the Texas Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers Handbook provide rules and regulations that Truck Drivers must follow.  You need a lawyer with experience working with these rules and regulations.
