If you’ve been involved in a motor vehicle accident with a truck, chances are you are suffering from significant injuries, not to mention emotional trauma. An experienced attorney can get the compensation you need for medical and other expenses. They will help investigate your accident and take actions to prove your case—many of which you may not even realize you need to do. Below are 10 ways an attorney works for you after a truck accident.

  1. Preserving all evidence related to your truck accident. This may require filing a spoliation letter. This is a document that informs all parties involved in the accident that evidence must not be concealed, destroyed, or altered in any way. Violating this order can lead to serious penalties.
  2. Getting law enforcement reports made of the accident.
  3. Visiting the scene of the accident to gather information and evidence.
  4. Contacting witnesses to the accident and taking statements from them.
  5. Requesting and procuring any digital evidence that can provide evidence for your case. This would include dashboard camera footage, the truck’s Electronic Control Module, GPS data, and cell phone records.
  6. Accessing the latest safety inspection records of the truck.
  7. Obtaining information on the truck driver’s qualifications as well as his or her driving record and training reports.
  8. Procuring the employer records on the driver and information about the trucking company’s hiring practices.
  9. Getting information on the cargo in the truck—how it was loaded and who was responsible for the loading.
  10. Finding and securing an expert who can reconstruct your accident.

10 Actions Your Attorney Can Take to Help After a Truck AccidentThere are many reasons for a truck accident.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
