Comments from Our Trucking Attorneys
We have had success locating a hit-and-run tractor-trailer through surveillance cameras and GPS tracking on the unit. Most trucking companies use GPS to keep track of their vehicles. In a hit and run accident, an experienced trucking attorney can gather evidence from the scene and surrounding surveillance camera to determine the most likely trucking company involved in the accident. You can only make a final determination by filing suit against the trucking company and a John Doe driver and narrowing down the number of possible involved drivers to the one who was operating the unit involved in the accident. It takes time, experience and extensive resources, but we have done it a number of times in the past. You can see our case results by clicking here.
