The investigation is very important in an 18-wheeler or semi-truck accident in Florida. The trucking company’s insurance may be on the scene of the accident shortly after paramedics and police. They will collect information and try to get a statement from you about the accident. All of the information they collect will be used to limit your claim as much as possible. It is important to contact a truck accident lawyer as soon as possible to investigate on your behalf and to handle insurance adjusters.
