After an Oklahoma semi accident, the trucking company may try to contact you. In many cases, the company’s representative will sound caring and apologetic, but he may be trying to collect evidence. Anything you say could be used to argue that the trucker was not completely at fault, and therefore the company is not responsible for the accident.

Some factors that can affect your Oklahoma City trucking accident case include:
- Weather. Rain, ice, or even the position of the sun creating glare can be used to defend a trucker-after all, nobody can control the weather.
- Time of day. If you were driving at night, the company may assume you were tired, affecting your response times.
- Emotional state. What kind of day did you have at work? Were you angry or depressed at the time of the accident? The company’s attorney may convince you that your emotions could have affected your driving.
