Preserving evidence at the scene of a truck accident

On Behalf of | Jun 15, 2018 | Truck Accidents |

Getting into a truck accident can be a life-changing event. You might suffer a serious injury that could prevent you from going to school or work. You might become paralyzed. You could lose a loved one as a result of this type of accident. No matter what happens, if you are involved in a truck accident, you need to help preserve the evidence at the scene in Cumming, Georgia.

For starters, you should never move evidence at the scene of a truck accident. You might think that you are doing other drivers a favor by moving debris out of the travel lanes but this debris could actually be viewed as evidence by investigators. Try to protect the evidence by telling others walking around the scene not to go near it.

If there is blood on the ground, do not walk through it. Not only is this a risk for your health, the pattern of blood splatter could be very helpful to the police officers who respond to investigate the accident in Cumming.

The ability to take pictures in today’s high-tech world makes preserving evidence even easier than in the past. Use the camera on your phone to take pictures and video of the crash scene. These pictures might be used as evidence by an attorney in a court during a lawsuit for personal injury.

Preserving evidence at a crash scene in Georgia is vital to the outcome of the investigation by law enforcement officials. If you can preserve evidence, you will go a long way in helping yourself with pleading your case.
