When it comes to accidents involving commercial vehicles, time is of the essence, and the right documentation can make all the difference. That's why trucking companies should consider our drone services as their first call after a traffic crash. Aerial photography, captured swiftly and comprehensively by our drones, offers a unique advantage in preserving crucial evidence and documenting accident scenes with precision. Failing to use drones in these situations could result in the loss of vital evidence that may have a significant financial impact through potential lawsuits. The evidence gathered from above, including damage patterns, skid marks, and traffic flow, can be the key to protecting your interests and ensuring a fair resolution. Don't risk missing out on essential documentation—choose us to secure your case, your assets, and your peace of mind.
Engage the services of your accident reconstruction experts as your initial step. The expediency with which they reach the scene and preserve evidence significantly bolsters the strength of your defense or offense in legal matters. This encompasses critical tasks such as swift computer data downloads, skid pattern identification, paint transfer analysis, mechanical failure assessment, and more. The prompt commencement of our investigative processes empowers us to offer timely and precise guidance to our clients on the optimal course of action. Conversely, postponing these critical steps for weeks, months, or even a year could potentially translate into substantial financial repercussions for your trucking company, as essential evidence may be lost, potentially costing millions in legal proceedings.
When engaging with the operator involved in an accident, it is paramount to provide professional advice: counsel them against making any statements to law enforcement until they have the opportunity to consult with legal representation on-site. It is essential to recognize that any statements made can and will be used against them in a court of law. Exercising the right to remain silent following a traffic accident is not an admission of guilt but rather a prudent safeguard of one's legal rights. It is advised to promptly contact an attorney, enabling them to utilize their expertise and skill to navigate the legal complexities in the most effective manner possible.
Initiate a comprehensive documentation process immediately. It is advisable that your fleet manager has equipped your truck with a dedicated camera for this purpose. Start by photographing the inside of your truck, with a specific focus on the instrumental panel. If it is safe to do so, and without causing further harm, exit the vehicle and meticulously capture visual evidence of everything within and around the accident scene. It is essential to refrain from using your personal cell phone camera for this task. Keep in mind that all documentation holds the potential to be subpoenaed in court, which includes any personal cell phone used for photographing the accident scene. The more information you can provide to our experts, the more thorough the analysis and subsequent report they can deliver. This meticulous approach can be instrumental in building a strong case or defense.
