At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we frequently offer support to those who have faced these circumstances. While you heal from your injuries, our team goes to work building your compensation case. We will:
- Locate and interview witnesses
- Complete and submit documents
- Prove the at-fault party’s negligence
- Read and review the accident report

Identifying the Liable Party Based on Evidence of Negligence
The at-fault party in your truck accident case could be the driver, their employer, or the manufacturer of the truck or its components. To help identify the at-fault party and prove their liability, we compile the following items into your case file:
- Pay stubs
- Medical bills
- Injury photos
- Medical records
- Witness statements
- Accident scene photos
Another key piece of evidence we include in your case file is the wreck report. It will tell us crucial information about the collision, including who was involved, when the crash occurred, and the officer’s assessment of the scene. In addition, it may tell us the type and amount of cargo the truck was carrying, whether the driver committed any violations, and whether drugs, alcohol, or distractions contributed to the collision.
