After a trucking accident, some people wait too long to talk to an attorney. What people don’t realize is that the trucking company and insurance company are not waiting around to gather evidence. Trucking companies and insurance companies regularly send investigators to the scene of the accident on the day of the collision to gather evidence to try to diminish the value of a claim.
