Robert A. Clifford, Senior Partner at Clifford Law Offices and monthly columnist for the Chicago Lawyer magazine, wrote his August, 2014 column entitled "Early Steps, Vital Steps: Truck Accidents Require Quick Action to Preserve Evidence." In the article, Clifford explains the importance of quick and meaningful action on the part of a plaintiff's attorney in accidents involving large trucks. As Clifford explains, defense attorneys can have an advantage in these types of accidents because they often have their own reconstruction experts and insurance adjusters on the scene of the collision. Further, Clifford notes that these reconstruction experts may even attempt to influence the authorities in their investigation of the scene, while in all likelihood the plaintiff's counsel will not be present. Throughout the article, Clifford explains how attorneys can avoid spoliation of evidence, or, in the alternative, how to respond to evidence that has already been "spoiled."
