Benefits of Semi Truck Accident Reconstruction

In order to be fully compensated for the loss you have incurred, you have to be able to prove that the truck driver, or the trucking company, was negligent.  By reconstructing the scene of the semi truck accident, it is easier to show exactly what happened leading up to your wreck.

Semi Truck Accident Reconstruction Variables

Most accidents aren’t exactly straight forward.  It’s usually not as simple as the truck ran a red light and smashed into your vehicle.  Instead, there are a host of variables that come into play, including:

  • Weather conditions
  • Road surface
  • Size of the truck
  • Size of your vehicle
  • Speed and direction of travel
  • Braking and Steering information

After analyzing all of these, it’s much easier to get a feel for what happened leading up to the crash, and how it all occurred.  As technology improves, and cameras and computers recording data come into play, reconstructing the accident is a much faster process.

Proving Negligence to Help Your Case

After the semi truck accident has been reconstructed, there is still more work to be done.  Even when we are able to prove that the other party was at fault, for you to receive the full compensation for your injuries and losses we show negligence.

Negligence can come in a variety of forms.  Some of the most common are:

  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Speeding
  • Not yielding right-of-way (usually includes running a sign or a light)
  • Reckless Driving

This is not to mention that negligence can also take the form of failure to make sure the truck is in good working condition so that no mechanical issues come into play.
