INVOLVED IN A TRUCKING ACCIDENT? GET LEGAL ASSISTANCE WITHOUT SLIGHTEST DELAY!
Obtain Fair Compensation With A Seasoned Trucking Accident Lawyer
It is a known fact that motor vehicle accidents can traumatize a person severely, leaving them with serious physical and mental scars and expensive bills to pay off. You feel the pinch all the more acutely when your only source of income was lost due to the accident and you are left wondering where to look for support.
While any motor vehicle accident can be devastating, the trauma of trucking accidents can be too shocking to overcome in a few weeks or months. These commercial trucks are so huge and heavy that they become extremely dangerous for occupants of smaller vehicles passing by. A mishap in such circumstances might lead to fatalities, or leave victims with serious and long-lasting injuries including:
- Damage to internal organs
- Neck and back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Abdominal injuries
- Long-term disability
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Broken bones

Things To Do After A Truck Accident
Being involved in a truck accident is nerve-wracking. Amid all the confusion and fear, you may not be able to figure out what to do next. Following these steps can also help protect your rights in the aftermath of an accident with a large commercial truck:
Stop and report the crash
Stay at the scene of the accident. Call 911 if someone is injured or dead. Otherwise, call the police or state highway patrol. Obtain a copy of your report for insurance company, attorney, and personal records.
Seek immediate medical attention
It is important to seek quick medical attention even if the injury seems innocuous.
Identify the other parties involved
The truck driver, along with the company for which they are driving, may also be liable for your injuries and damage to your vehicle.
Obtain relevant information from the driver
Before the driver leaves the scene of the accident, ensure you have his name, address, phone number, his employer’s details, and the name of the insurance company, etc.
Check for witness
Look around to see whether any witness is present. Get their contact number as they could be required later to testify in the case.
Document the accident
Use a camera or your cellphone camera to take pictures and make a video of the accident scene.
After the accident, you may be contacted by an insurance adjuster. It will be better if you do not entertain them without an attorney in attendance.
