Identifying Parties Responsible for Your Injuries
A thorough investigation is required, following a commercial truck accident. Law enforcement officials, and perhaps other governmental representatives, embark on an investigation following an injury-causing, or fatal, commercial truck accident. However, you must keep in mind that the primary objective of these investigations is not to identify responsible parties for the purpose of an insurance claim or a lawsuit.
When you are injured following a commercial truck accident, you have the legal burden of identifying and pursuing any party you deem responsible for the accident and your injuries.
