What Should I Do After a Truck Wreck?

After a truck wreck, the truck company and its insurance carrier are working against drivers in passenger vehicles to gain control of the evidence and place the blame for the crash elsewhere. Truck companies are typically large corporations with extensive resources. They have GPS trackers on their vehicles, and when an accident occurs, they will be at the scene right away. This puts victims of a truck wreck, typically car drivers and passengers, at an extreme disadvantage. In this video, North Carolina truck accident lawyer Gene Riddle explains how having a personal injury attorney can level the playing field for people seriously harmed in wrecks.

Those wrecks involving tractor trailers and huge weapons of mass destruction on the road, when they’re not driven according to our rules of the road, the insurance company who insures the tractor-trailer or truck, or the owner of the tractor-trailer or truck, they can have someone on the scene within minutes or hours. And that’s obvious because it’s their employee, it’s their agent who was behind the wheel of the tractor-trailer that caused the wreck. At Riddle and Brantley, we try to even that playing field, because we too have an accident or wreck investigation team, that we can put on the scene, maybe not within minutes but certainly within hours or certainly within a couple days or as soon as our clients contact us and give us permission and authority to investigate the wreck on their behalf. Please give us a call or send us an email. We’re here, we’re ready to help. Justice Counts.
