Truck Accidents/Preservation of Evidence
Preservation of Evidence Letter
After a serious truck accident, you can’t always trust the insurance company to protect your best interests. Insurance companies usually want to minimize a settlement payment as much as possible, and destroying key evidence can be their best weapon.
To combat this improper destruction of evidence, the North Carolina truck accident lawyers at Henson Fuerst will send a written Preservation of Evidence Letter that outlines specific items and materials we require be preserved.
What Does the Evidence Letter Include?
The Preservation of Evidence Letter may request the preservation of information such as:
- Driver log books
- Driver qualification files
- Gas receipts
- Inspection reports
- Driving tickets
In the letter, we might also demand a vehicle inspection be administered by an unbiased professional—such as an accident reconstruction expert—in order to determine the cause of the truck accident.
The preserved evidence will be used by your North Carolina truck accident attorney to help prove your claim. The more evidence preserved and collected, the better chance we have at getting you the compensation you need for your injuries.
Defending Your Rights
If the Preservation of Evidence Letter doesn’t stop the intentional damaging of evidence, we may have to obtain a court order to prohibit further destruction. Our North Carolina truck accident lawyers are prepared to use the fullest protections of the law to hold defendants accountable for this illegal and improper destruction of evidence.
