What is unique about trucking injuries?
The truck oftentimes is extremely heavy of course. It can be a dump truck carrying commercial stones, it can be a heavy tractor-trailer truck filled to the brim with the product.
Trucking accident cases are very serious. They have some of the most intense life, altering potential injuries. We see often times severe spinal cord trauma and spine injuries that eventually are resulting in major back surgeries, major fusion surgeries, and serious injuries.
You could have bone-crushing injuries, burn injuries, you can have devastating traumatic brain injuries, concussions. You may have all sorts of very serious injuries. It is the complexities of these types of cases that compel you to go to a law firm that has the experience and the knowledge in respective to truck accident cases.
What should I do after a truck accident?
If you or a loved one have been involved in a trucking accident, it is one of the most serious situations that you can find yourself in, obviously. The most important thing is that, of course, as soon as it happens, you seek medical attention immediately. That goes without saying. Then the next thing to do, if it’s safe, is make sure that you observe your surroundings. Of course, call the authorities, get the police to the scene as soon as possible. Make a mental note about what’s written on the side of the truck. There are also certain DOT numbers that may be on the truck as well. You may want to write that down if it’s safe for you to do so.
