Trucking companies have swarms of lawyers.

Shouldn’t you have an experienced team of lawyers on your side?

There are fewer things more terrifying than driving alongside an enormous 18-wheeler on the highway. The only thing scarier is one of those 18-wheelers cutting into your lane and forcing the vehicle under the trailer. As nightmarish of a scenario as that seems to be, it is the unfortunate truth for roughly 350,000 Americans each year. Luckily, for those involved in such crashes, Hendy | Johnson | Vaughn | Emery are highly seasoned attorneys, ready to assist you in obtaining restitution for lost property and other damages that may have been sustained.

One of the most important parts of being successful in a tractor trailer crash case is collecting evidence and being able to properly interpret it. At Hendy | Johnson | Vaughn | Emery, we know from decades of experience the importance of collecting such evidence and exactly how it must be obtained in order to be used effectively in your case.

Our team is extremely well versed in the tactics of collecting crucial evidence which must be preserved and inspected immediately or else could be forever lost or destroyed. Such evidence includes:

  • Digital driving logs
  • Call logs that include the driver and dispatch
  • Vehicle maintenance records
  • Driving history
  • Inspection the tractor and semi-trailer
  • Inspecting the load
  • Downloading the 18-wheeler’s electronic control module (ECM/“black box”)
  • Downloading the truck’s telematics system
  • Preserving the truck driver’s cell phone
  • Inspecting roadway for evidence
  • Obtaining the company’s driver history
  • And many other critical pieces of evidence used in tractor trailer crash cases

Often times, truck companies and their insurance carriers have teams of lawyers and experts in every State called Rapid Response Teams which immediately go to the scene of serious truck crashes upon a moment’s notice. They are deployed immediately to collect evidence, interview witnesses and discuss the crash with law enforcement, so it’s imperative that you contact an experienced law firm to do the same for you or your loved ones when one of you are seriously injured or killed in a tractor trailer crash.

Personal injury Attorney

“I’ve specialized in tractor trailer cases for over 10 years and recently became one of the first attorneys to ever be Board Certified in Truck Accident Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. To say that I am passionate about fighting for those involved in truck wrecks, would be an understatement. Day to day I’m all southern charm, but when I’m working on a case or in the courtroom, I’m here to win!”
