18 Wheeler Truckers Look Out for Number One, Not You, And Often not Even the Truth
What would you do if someone threatened your line of work, your ability to earn a living and take care of your family? Good jobs are hard to come by these days so you would probably do anything to assure that you keep getting paid and that your family still eats.
Truck drivers are no different. When they’ve been involved in an 18 wheeler accident and know they are in danger of losing their paycheck if they’re held liable for the wreck, they’re not beyond lying, cheating (or stealing evidence) in order to save their job. Trucking companies wouldn’t trust one of their expensive rigs to a driver with a history of causing expensive wrecks; even one. The trucker knows he’ll probably lose his job if he’s found responsible for your accident and serious injuries. And it will be hard for him to find another driving gig. So when he hits you, he’s looking for a fall guy. And you’re it.
A client once hired us after suffering an injury in an 18-wheeler accident. The driver who caused it claimed that our client was driving with his lights off at night and was instead, the cause of the accident. But our investigators discovered a security camera outside a storefront that was pointed directly at the accident scene. The video clearly showed that our client’s headlights were shining brightly, which proved that the truck driver boldly lied.
Our investigative methods get to the bottom of 18 wheeler accidents and the lies the drivers sometimes tell. All of the evidence, sworn statements of credible witnesses, video surveillance footage, and forensic test results we gather that prove a trucker isn’t telling the truth can make powerful evidence in your insurance claim or civil case. Sometimes your lawyer will catch a trucker in a lie during a deposition and press him until he gives up the truth. Over the last twenty years, the 18 wheeler accident injury lawyers at our Texas Law Firm have taken countless depositions and developed sophisticated techniques of inquisition that can get witnesses to admit the truth. And the truth is your best weapon in winning a settlement before a case goes to trial.
