You need to hire a lawyer as soon as possible after an accident to make sure that evidence is preserved and is not destroyed. Physical evidence at the scene such as skid marks, yaw marks and scuffs begin to disappear within hours after an accident. An accident reconstructionist needs to be called to the scene to preserve and document this evidence. The trucking company is allowed to destroy relevant documents such as electronic messages within days of the accident if a spoliation letter is not sent to them demanding that they preserve and not alter this evidence. Without an attorney on your side, your case can be lost before it even begins.
