What to Do After a Truck Accident
After you’ve been in a truck crash, it is important that you contact a truck accident lawyer immediately. The major trucking companies will hire lawyers immediately after a truck accident and have them on the scene the same day, if possible. This is why you need to do the same. Once hired, our experienced truck accident attorneys at Munley Law will preserve vital pieces of evidence, secure the scene of a truck crash, and take necessary photographs and witness statements. This is critical because evidence can be lost, misplaced or be purposely destroyed by the trucking companies, and the preservation of that evidence is crucial to proving liability in the collision.

How Our Truck Accident Lawyers Can Help You
Complex tractor trailer truck accident litigation requires thorough investigation, the opinions of expert witnesses, and the creative use of discovery procedures after the suit is filed. Prompt investigation of the accident scene is crucial. The trucking company will have its own team of investigators dispatched immediately. You need investigators who will work for you and document favorable evidence. Munley Law’s on-staff team of investigators routinely visit accident scenes and take photographs of physical evidence. They search for eyewitnesses, skid marks, yaw marks, accident debris, and gouge marks, as well as oil, gas, and radiator fluid stains can disappear quickly after an accident. We will also obtain police reports, motor carrier records, witness statements, photographs, and safety logs. The sooner you engage us to represent you, the sooner we can get to work.

Truck Accident Client Testimonials
“I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him.”

“First, I want to tell you I hired another firm for my case before Marion, I did not choose carefully the first time is all I will say. Secondly , I would like to say that I do not give the highest rating to many people or companies without earning it. I can say Marion earned it!! She and everyone I came into contact with in her firm handled my case with the utmost professionalism, as well as true empathy for my situation, while not missing a detail about the facts of the case. I can not leave out her paralegal Janice, she was totally on the ball at all times. My case was a personal injury case ( I was hit by a tractor trailer) which was settled for a very fair settlement ! I am sure whatever your case involves, she will handle it in the same manner. She is a great person and an awesome attorney!! She will fight for you!!”
