Trucking accident attorneys Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder will build your case so you get maximum compensation for your past and future medical bills, past and future lost wages and past and future pain and suffering.
Trucking cases can be very complicated and are not for the faint of heart. Trucking companies employ teams of lawyers and experts who will stop at nothing to protect their own. It is not uncommon for trucking companies’ lawyers to plan their defense of attack with their accident reconstructionist and operator within minutes of a crash.
Personal Injury attorneys Marc P. Lyons and Philip M. Snyder know how to swift boat these defense arguments by highlighting the more likely cause of the accident, including fatigue, reckless driving, speeding, tailgating, texting and driving, or a violation of laws and regulations specifically for trucks.
Our trucking attorneys also demand that the at-fault trucking company preserve their truck so we can hire our own accident reconstructionist to inspect the truck and evaluate the truck’s “black box”/electronic data recorder (“EDR”). Similar to what is found in an airplane, the black box can provide us with a treasure trove of information such as:
- The exact time the truck made impact with your vehicle
- The speed at which the truck was traveling before the operator pressed the break
- The speed at which the truck made impact with your vehicle
- When the operator placed his foot on the break/distance before the crash
- Whether the cruise control was engaged
- Whether the truck had a governor restricting the top speed
The EDR can be crucial to counter the arguments of the defense that “something or someone other than their operator’s actions” caused the crash.
