Why a Vancouver Truck Wreck Lawyer is Vital After a Fatal Crash

After losing a close relative in a fatal crash, you know you have important “stuff” to do, such as retaining a Vancouver truck wreck attorney.

At the same time, a part of you would prefer to cry in your room and hide from the world for a week or longer. This impulse to retreat into introspection is a totally natural one. Sadly, our society is not structured in a way that easily allows people to grieve in this fashion without getting distracted by worldly affairs.

Unfortunately, if the trucker who caused the crash did something wrong by driving negligently, operating a non-standard vehicle, or improperly stowing cargo, you may need to act rapidly to establish evidence of that bad behavior and set the stage for potential legal action.

After any kind of truck accident in Vancouver, time is of the essence, legally speaking.

As time goes on, the crash scene will be cleaned up (evidence will be lost), witnesses will forget what they saw, and insurance companies and other defendants will use the time to contrive a defense that may be difficult to break. In fact, insurance companies often count on victims to be “slow out of the gate,” and they take full advantage of this time delay.

The dangers of delay are amplified in fatal accidents, which are often high-stakes cases for defendants. Millions of dollars may be on the line, so insurance companies and other defendants are extremely motivated to protect their interests. They will do everything possible to defeat your claim.

To meet this challenge, contact the Vancouver truck wreck lawyers at McComb Witten today. The number is 604-255-9018 and the case evaluation is completely free.
