A significant part of any semi-truck accident investigation will include preservation of evidence letter sent to the owner and operator of the semi-truck. Simply put, this letter demands that the owner and operator maintain the evidence requested. It also includes a demand that evidence not be altered or lost. The failure of the owner or operator to comply with the preservation of evidence letter can result in significant sanctions and other legal ramifications.
Here are just a few of the items that a preservation of evidence letter might include following a semi-truck accident in Miami or anywhere Florida:
- financial records concerning the driver
- financial records concerning the truck, trailer or semi-truck
- cargo transportation bills and accounting records for the trucking question
- proof of all payments to the operator of the truck for the 60 days prior to the accident
- pickup or delivery orders for cargo for the 30 days preceding the accident in question including but not limited to orders prepared by brokers, receivers, shippers, motor carriers, drivers, or any other company or person
- all records for the operator including expense sheets and settlement sheets for the preceding 30 days and including the day of the accident
- the pre-trip inspection logbook and report for the trip on the day of the accident
- all social media accounts of the owner, operator or anyone else associated with the truck on the day of the accident
