I was injured when a delivery truck sideswiped my car on I-95. How long should I wait to contact a Boca Raton truck accident lawyer?

A:

Boca Raton personal injury lawyer David Glatthorn suggests that you contact an attorney immediately. If you wait too long, your accident lawyer may not be able to gather the evidence needed to win your case, even if the truck driver is clearly at fault.

Trucking companies are businesses, and their main concern is profits. Trucking companies hire teams of lawyers to make sure their interests are protected. While companies are required by law to keep important documents after an accident, these documents are usually destroyed as soon as the retention period is over. For example, logbooks must only be retained for six months. If the driver was driving more hours than is legal, you can be sure these records will be destroyed.

An experienced Boca Raton truck accident attorney is familiar with both state and federal regulatory requirements. He will know which documents are needed to help prove your case and will act quickly to make sure that all the evidence is preserved.

A Florida truck accident case is different than a car accident case. Because the injuries are more severe, there is more at stake. Tucking companies hire aggressive defense lawyers to protect their interests. You need an attorney with the experience to win your case.
