Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Truck Accidents and the Court

Cueria Law Firm LLC New Orleans attorney

If you are involved in a truck accident, it isn’t enough to just claim that the trucking company or the truck driver was at fault. Instead, you have to gather and present plenty of evidence to prove it was these parties that acted negligently. In many cases, collecting evidence after a trucking accident is much more difficult than in a typical passenger accident case. Due to this, one of the best things you can do is hire a New Orleans attorney for help. Also, knowing what types of evidence are needed to help prove your case is beneficial.

The Truck’s “Black Box”

When a plane crash occurs, the authorities are focused on finding the aircraft’s “black box.” This is because the information in the box can help them figure out the cause of an accident. All commercial trucks are also equipped with these black boxes. They are accommodating after an accident. A “black box” is actually an event data recorder, which records information such as the operational functions, braking and speed of the truck when the accident occurred. The information contained in this box can show if a truck driver did not brake or if they were speeding right before the crash. Information in the black box is data lawyers in New Orleans can use to prove the driver of the truck acted negligently.

Dashboard Cameras

Some trucking companies now install dashboard cameras in all the trucks in their fleet. Some cameras face toward the road and out in front of the truck, which provides evidence that your New Orleans attorney can use to prove your case. For example, these cameras can let your attorney know if the driver was tailgating, swerving, slamming on the brakes or making unsafe lane changes. These can all be an indication of distracted driving, the driver falling asleep or even if they were intoxicated while behind the wheel.

Records and Logbooks

Law requires that truck drivers, as well as other company employees, make and maintain careful records regarding a number of important issues. Some records that may prove to be helpful to the New Orleans law firm handling your injury case include:

  • Delivery schedules
  • Inspection and maintenance records
  • Logbooks showing the days and hours the driver worked
  • Accident history and driving records of the truck drivers
  • Records from dispatchers

Your attorney will be able to use the information recorded in these documents to prove the driver was at fault, which can help you recover a fair amount of compensation.
