Measuring and Mapping the Site are Crucial to Reconstructing Truck Accidents 

Large commercial vehicles like tractor-trailer rigs behave much differently in accidents than smaller vehicles like passenger cars do.  A fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh twenty times as much as the typical passenger vehicle, and it is correspondingly much harder to slow, stop, or maneuver, especially when moving at highway speeds.  Reconstructing truck accidents often involves detailed physical and mechanical analysis of how the truck moved before impact, at the point of impact, and post-impact until it came to a rest. Combined with any evidence of mechanical defects in the truck and/or problems or errors by the driver, measuring and mapping the accident site is key to reconstructing truck accidents to determine how and why they happened, which is equally important to proving liability in a personal injury claim or lawsuit.  An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to use this mapping evidence — often in conjunction with accident reconstruction expert witnesses — to successfully conclude claims and litigation for their clients.
