In a serious trucking claim it is critical that the trucking entity get an attorney involved ASAP - often in the middle of the night when the accident happens. The attorney will then normally call an accident reconstruction expert like Rickard to rush to the scene. The expert's job is to take photos and measurements while everything is still fresh. Early and thorough investigation at the accident scene is critical in the insurance claims investigation process, and that's the message that was emphasized to conference attendees.
