Truck Accident Investigation in Delaware

The Investigation of a Truck Accident is A Key Component to Recovering Full and Fair Compensation

When you have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident involving a commercial truck, one of the critical factors in getting the compensation you need is the investigation of the causes of the accident. A single truck accident can involve a number of factors, from poor maintenance by the trucker or trucking company to negligence by other motorists. You want an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who knows the right questions to ask to handle your case so that the investigation is thorough and your rights are fully protected.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we have aggressively fought for the rights of personal injury victims in Delaware for more than 31 years. We take a no-nonsense approach, gathering as much information as we can so that we can provide you with a thorough and realistic assessment of the value of your case, as well as your likelihood of success. We’ll keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make educated decisions about how you want to proceed.

The Value of a Professional Truck Accident Investigation

If you have been injured in an accident involving a semi, big rig, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler, you can rest assured that the trucking company will hire its own investigators to try to find evidence to avoid or minimize liability. It is therefore critical that your legal counsel move quickly to gather, assess and preserve all relevant evidence.

When we take your truck accident injury claim, we will immediately begin accumulating evidence to support your case:

  • We will obtain copies of police reports
  • We will travel to the scene of the accident, taking pictures and gathering any other relevant information
  • We will identify and question all potential witnesses
  • We will request and review all maintenance and driving logs, as well as information regarding how much time the trucker spent on the road before the accident

Attorney Hood handles all types of injury claims involving truck accidents, including serious and catastrophic loss, such as brain or spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, burns, and amputation or loss of limb. We also take wrongful death claims arising out of a truck accident.

We will help you pursue damages for all your losses, including lost wages and income, medical expenses, and physical pain and suffering.
