What to Do After an Unexpected Truck Accident
Truck accidents can be catastrophic events. However, the moments immediately following your collision will be crucial for your future claim.
As soon as possible following the collision, call 911 and report the accident to law enforcement. If you can, speak to the responding officer and collect his or her information. Try to collect information from witnesses, photograph the accident scene, and exchange contact details with the other driver.
Always seek medical attention immediately after the accident and save all records related to your injuries. Do not wait to seek emergency care; you may have internal injuries that you do not know about, and your medical records will be valuable evidence in your case.
Once you receive the care that you need, speak to a truck accident lawyer. Your attorney will evaluate your case and help you understand your optimal path to compensation.
