What to Do If You’re in a Truck Accident
If you or a loved one are at a truck accident scene there are things you should do right away, if you are able to. Your medical needs and attention come first. Steps that are critical in helping prove your case to fight the trucker’s insurance company are:
- Stay at the scene.
- Call 911 for help.
- Find out if others are hurt.
- Take pictures of the accident scene, vehicle damage, and injuries.
- Do not say anything regarding who is at fault.
- Do not talk to any insurance adjusters or their investigators.
- Get medical attention, even if you do not feel like you are injured. Remember, you are in shock, and you may not know you are hurt.
- Call an experienced truck accident law firm as soon as you possibly can.
Vital Information to Collect at the Accident Scene
If you are able to collect information at the scene of the accident, it will greatly assist in developing your case. Try to get
- Contact information of all witnesses.
- Company name that is written on the side of the truck.
- Contact information of truck driver and company.
- Insurance Information.
- Description of the accident scene.
- Photographs and videos of the scene.
Keep in mind that large trucking companies or their insurance companies will send skilled investigators to the accident scene. These individuals will attempt to be your friend and gain critical information that could be used against you in court. It’s always best to keep your information confidential until speaking to your trucking accident lawyer. Remember you are not required to talk to the trucking company or their insurance company.
