Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Whiting Law Group, a Chicago-based law firm with offices in Southeast Wisconsin, specializing in truck accident litigation earns millions of dollars in jury awards and has a 96% recovery rate for their clients. Due to Whiting Law Group’s team of seasoned truck accident litigators they are able to help their clients receive fair settlements. Adding to the firm’s success is the recent launch of the Trucking Accident Evidence Response Team. Formed by Whiting Law Group’s Founding Partner, Timothy M. Whiting, this group is comprised of investigators, an accident rectonstructionist and a truck driving expert. Together, this team searches for and preserves important data that is instrumental in proving liability in trucking crashes.
Realizing that important evidence is sometimes altered, Mr. Whiting, along Investigative Research Consultants (IRC), an intelligence gathering agency in Chicago, IL, work in tandem on trucking accidents across the country. Mr. Whiting and IRC have honed their expertise and experience into a protocol for truck accident cases.
“Because of the complexity of trucking cases, many law firms are not fully aware of the violations and regulations involved in the accident and how they are governed by how these drivers operate,” said Timothy Whiting. “We created the Trucking Accident Evidence Response Team so that our experts can comprehensively gather all of the evidence within days and sometimes hours of the accident. Preserving evidence is critical in determining negligence and liability in these cases and quite often results in higher settlements for our clients.”
According to Mr. Whiting, trucking accident litigation has multiple and intricate details that may be overlooked but are crucial in building a strong case. Whiting Law Group’s Trucking Accident Evidence Response Team deploys experts who dig deep with their investigation Depending upon the specific circumstances of a trucking accident, the team will photograph the roadway and search for remaining debris; obtain full measurements of the roadways; photograph the speed limit signs and any caution signs. They will also interview the tow trucking company and seek additional evidence, visit the trucking yard and inspect their vehicles. If necessary, the team will download the electronic control module that was in the truck at the time of the crash. The Trucking Accident Evidence Response Team also inspects the truck for any violations and documents all of the motor carrier numbers on the truck and trailers. This information is then used to conduct a full corporate and background check on the driver that was involved.
The Trucking Accident Evidence Response Team captures key evidence through photographing the inside the truck cab to properly identify the trucking companies involved. Documenting key evidence as the trucking logs and payroll slips have been pivotal in naming defendants in some of the trucking litigation that Whiting Law Group has been involved in on behalf of their clients. This attention to detail has led Whiting Law Group to securing larger settlements, contributing to their high rate of success while also protecting the rights and interests of their clients.
