How Accident Reconstruction Helps After a Truck Crash

Due to their massive size and weight, trucks can cause major damage in a collision. Truck accidents often involve multi-vehicle pileups, totaled cars, and catastrophic injuries. This level of destruction can make it difficult to figure out what happened and who was at fault. That’s why lawyers sometimes work with accident reconstruction experts to piece together the events leading to the crash.

The attorneys have Ostroff Injury Law have represented truck accident victims for decades. We go above and beyond to pursue the details that win our cases. When a crash is very complex, we get expert help to investigate as fully as possible.

Accident Reconstruction: The Basics

Time is of the essence after a truck accident. The trucking company and its insurers move quickly to get investigators on the crash scene right away. After a victim contacts us, we visit the scene to gather information before it moves. At this point, we may get the help of a trained accident reconstruction expert.

These experts start with the data they already know. They look at the final resting positions of the vehicles involved and the resulting damage. They gather all the accident scene evidence they can. Then, they use scientific, investigative principles to work in reverse. These experts can uncover details such as:

  • How the impact(s) occurred
  • The speed at which the vehicles were moving
  • Weather, road, and visibility conditions
  • Driver behavior and more

When we know these details, our attorneys can build our client’s case. If the case goes to trial, we take this evidence to the jury to give them a clear picture of the accident.

Ostroff Injury Law has helped more than 25,000 Pennsylvania accident victims over the past 25 years.
