Atlanta Truck Accident Attorney Lists Evidence that can be Valuable in Your Claim (Part B)

Pursuing an Atlanta truck accident claim in itself can feel like an overwhelming experience but when you add into the mix the potential of more than 1 party being held liable, it can become very complicated and time-consuming.

That is why, it is imperative to collect ample evidence that establishes liability. A truck accident attorney can help you obtain the proof that you need and determine if any or all parties may be held accountable.

Key Evidence in Your Atlanta Truck Accident Claim

Some of the types of evidence that may be helpful in establishing liability include the following:
 
  • paper or electronic logbook;
  • driver’s cell phone records;
  • eyewitness statements;
  • accident report;
  • photographs of the accident scene, damage to vehicles, and injuries;
  • driving history;
  • truck inspection reports;
  • records of truck repairs; and
  • testimony from an accident reconstruction expert. 

It is important that you try to obtain as much evidence as you can while at the scene of your accident and afterward.
This way, there is less of a chance of pertinent paperwork or documents going “missing.” It can also show the severity of damages and injuries, especially in photos, and remember pictures are worth 1000 words.

Furthermore, because of the nature of a these types of accidents and the potential for a third-party claim, you should secure legal counsel to help you gather the proof that you need. An attorney may be able to help uncover hidden information or details that could significantly impact the outcome of your case and many times has connections to valuable resources that can help support your claim.
