When Should I Hire A Galveston Personal Injury Lawyer?

When there is an accident that causes serious injury or death you need to hire your personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. There is a lot or work that needs to be dome so that valuable evidence is not lost of worse destroyed. The scene of the accident needs to be photographed and video-taped so that any skid marks and tire marks can be measured to estimate the speed of the vehicle.

In a serious trucking accident the tractor and trailer need to be inspected to see if the brakes, tires and trailer were in properly operating conditions. The event data recorder or black box from the truck needs to be inspected and downloaded. This data can show critical evidence about the truck right before the accident

Witnesses need to be interviewed and their statements taken before their memory fades. Sometimes the accident can be caught on surveillance security video. Local business surveillance cameras need to be located and the tapes preserved before they are erased.
