There is a short window of time before the scene of the accident will be cleared. The truck may go back into operation if certain letters are not sent. Witnesses become more difficult to find and less interested in helping as time goes by. Trucks also carry electronics that record a lot of data that can help explain how an accident occurred. An attorney can assure that all this information is collected properly. Insurance requirements are different for trucking companies and because of the large amounts of money at stake their insurance company will usually have an investigator at the scene as soon as possible.
