Tractor trailer accidents happen every day in Georgia. Hopefully you’ll never encounter a big rig in a tight situation, but if it happens and you are in an accident with an over-the-road trucker, it’s important to get an attorney involved right away.
At the Law Offices of David Van Sant we’re expert at accident reconstruction. The service we provide includes a thorough analysis of an accident scenario. It involves working with police records and emergency personnel, the Department of Transportation, and legal teams representing the responsible party.
Accident reconstruction goes beyond the information you will provide during a deposition. It involves expert testimony that will provide opinion about fault based on detailed diagrams and what is known about the laws of physics. If two vehicles collide, experts can use information about the accident scene, damage to vehicles, personal injuries, speed, and road conditions to arrive at evidence regarding fault.
Reconstructing an accident is not something you should take lightly. While it may sound like a lot of effort, if you have been in an accident with a large rig and are experiencing medical problems or have expenses associated with repairing your vehicle, it’s something you definitely need to have done.
When faced with the documentation that comes from an accident reconstructionist, most commercial transportation companies or independent truck drivers will acknowledge the fault and settle the case. Without a reconstruction or the aide of an attorney, your claim against a large company may be stalled, even to the point where it becomes a financial hardship. Insurance companies will do what they can to avoid paying for repairs or medical bills. It’s the nature of the industry.
