How quickly should I contact an attorney in a Florida truck accident case?
In a Florida truck accident case, it is imperative that you contact an attorney immediately, someone who has experience with trucking cases. They need to get a team of experts out to the scene if at all possible when the accident happens, but even if you wait until after you go to the hospital or whatever the circumstances, get them involved as quickly as possible. Letters need to go out to the trucking companies.
They need to preserve evidence. They have a responsibility to do that. Lawyers can get involved. They can subpoena the black box that is involved that will have the information from the truck that will talk about how long the truck has been on the road, and what speed the truck was going at the time of the crash. All of these are really important factors that are going to weigh into the liability of this accident.
