Gathering evidence shortly after the accident is extremely important including data from the truck or car involved in the accident.  Most truck have EMS systems or some type of GPS tracking that can help put the pieces together of what actually happened at the time of the accident. Many cars operating in the United States also contain “black boxes” showing steering movements immediately prior to the accident.
