Recently Swift Transportation was ordered to pay $23.5 Million for a wreck where one of its drivers was on drugs, specifically meth. Ken Shigley blogged about this case and his comments can be read here. Only when evidence of wrongdoing is preserved can lawyers obtain justice for their clients. Delay in hiring a lawyer in your case can be fatal, particularly with Swift. My blog has several orders where the courts have found Swift destroyed evidence AFTER THEY WERE AWARE OF THE LAWSUIT! Imagine what they are doing to the evidence without a lawyer in your case!
