Last Friday night, there was a horrific trucking accident on I35 in New Braunfels. The wreck involved two tractor-trailers and one pickup truck. One of the drivers was tragically killed when his truck burst into flames. All told, traffic was shut down for over ten hours on northbound I35 (and a mere six hours on southbound I35).
They knee-jerk reaction in looking at these types of complicated wrecks is to jump to the conclusion that you’ll never know what happened.
Except we can.
A good accident investigator can look at the vehicles involved, the roadway, any witness statements and other information obtained in an investigation and can, in essence, re-create the wreck.
But the key is getting out there earlier. You can bet that the trucking companies involved had their own investigators out at the scene before the traffic cleared. This gives them access to almost all the information involved in the wreck. Unfortunately, some of that evidence disappears with time.
To really put yourself on equal footing with the trucking companies, you need to hire a lawyer and investigator as soon as possible.
